This week at Bentley...
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 too!
We have had a lovely final week with our current bubble groups and are excited to see our Year 6 pupils next week. We will also look forward to seeing all the children for their ‘goodbye’ and ‘hello’ Zoom calls on Monday and Tuesday! Your Zoom log in details will be sent out each morning so keep an eye out for the log in codes. Finally, we hope you will be able to pop by on Wednesday to drop off any items (see list below) and collect books, belongings and maybe buy a treat from the Ice Cream van!
There are three special event days lined up for virtual School learning and you will have received an email today for grown-ups to check the details ready to get any resources in advance this weekend.
For all it has been a very unusual year today but the end of year preparations and excitement about moving up to the next year group makes it seem far more usual! Our children have all worked hard, grown up and learnt new skills this year. I know I join you as parents, grandparents and friends of the school in being very proud of them all as we get ready to end another academic year. Bravo to the children!

Our last goodbye for this school year is to Mandy Lanning who will be leaving our amazing Breakfast Club team. Mandy says, “We have had a very happy seven years and had it not been for moving house there is no way that we would be leaving Bentley – we love it! Charlie, Olivia and I will miss you all very much.” We are certainly going to miss you too Miss Lanning and thank you so much for all your hard work, especially for helping to set up our amazing spring family breakfasts!
… Charlie in Year 5, who has a beautiful new baby brother!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO…
Kaidy-May, Louis, Rida, Chloe and Harry…! We are sorry the whole school couldn’t all sing Happy Birthday in collective worship as we usually would, but Bubble Group 4 have sung it instead J You can download the audio file from the foot of this page.
We hope you had a really fabulous birthday!
