    This week at Bentley...

    In this final week we have really enjoyed some very special moments despite the continued topsy- turvy of the COVID restrictions. It was brilliant to see the children reunited albeit virtually to say ‘goodbyes’ and ‘hellos’ as part of our Transition work. Teaching Staff ha...

    Thank you to everyone who reviewed work with their child at home last Friday and posted to Seesaw. We have saved the work to share with the children’s new teachers ready to highlight their success from this academic year. Well done for all the super builds and lovely flower show entries t...

    A rather drizzly, grey week but good for all the gardens, plus our lovely rainbow planters which are looking fantastic outside school – have a walk or cycle past to admire them if you can.  I came into school early one morning and saw a deer and an owl en route and then a snuffling hedgeh...

    I have found myself continuing the theme of ‘Happiness’ from my Collective Worship this week. At a time when it is much harder to do my usual class observations, I have very much missed the everyday interactions with the children at school, which is something I usually enjoy very much. T...

    What a hot week it has been and I hope that you are reading this with a nice cool drink in hand! I know at school we are all melting and are dreaming of paddling pools and ice lollies later on today. Hopefully home schooling has allowed for some water play! Our Virtual School staff have been enjo...

    It has been another busy week at school and as I write, early on Friday morning, I know there may have to be some difficult decisions ahead today as we try and fulfil the government directive to host further key worker children whose parents may not have known they were categorised as this just a co...

    Every Friday we review how things are going in school with all the complex new arrangements, in order to plan ahead for the following week. We have been doing this since lockdown began and every single week we have been open. It has been ‘just’ 44 school days today since lockdown began...

    This week in Bentley...

    Like many of you I was left reeling and horrified by the death of George Floyd last week. The children in school have watched Newsround and discussed their reactions and feelings. As ever, I find solace in very difficult times in the open minds of children and determination to do better than generat...

    Thank you to the parents who have been in touch with so much support, appreciating that the current plans for the 1st of June are difficult and not ideal for any of us. We know many of you are feeling anxious about sending your children back into school whilst others are heartbroken they are not com...

    It has been a really great week of learning judging by all the feedback and Seesaw uptake. A HUGE thank you to parents and carers for facilitating this. Next week, teachers will send out work via email each day but will aim to add more of this onto Seesaw. After half term the Virtual School work...

    In terms of emotions, it seems to have been a tricky week for many of us as we are pending the news from Government about the COVID-19 lockdown. I have taken much solace from the wisdom of our key worker parents this morning; hearing that care workers now have PPE equipment; in local hospitals numbe...

    As we reach the end of our sixth week out of school, the sun has come out again after the rain and there is some blue sky outside of my window. I think lots of us found lockdown at home much harder without the lovely weather. Looking on the bright side, the gardens certainly needed the rain and hope...
