this week at Bentley
I can’t believe we are already at the end of the first half of the summer term and what an incredibly busy one it’s been!! We’ve had a huge range of educational visits, two residentials, SATs tests, coronation celebrations, sporting events and prayer week, as well as all of our usual learning and activities. I have been so proud of all the children this half-term. They have worked hard in their lessons and have represented our school well when off site by upholding our rules and values at all times - well done children.
The second half of the summer term has lots more to look forward to from Sports Day to the Summer Fete and much, much more!! I wish you all a restful half-term break and look forward to seeing you all back at school on Monday 5th June.
Time to spuce up! Class photos will take place after half-term on Tuesday 6th June.
Sports Day is on Friday 9th June and will finish at 12.30pm. We hope everyone will then stay for a family picnic, after which children will be able to go home. Children can order a school picnic lunch or are welcome to bring their own. A letter went out this week with full details. Please remember to send your child into school in full P.E kit (including house colour t-shirt) with sun cream already applied. They will also need to bring a water bottle and a sun hat.
Please click here to indicate on Scopay whether your child will be going home after the picnic or will be staying at school.
Thank you very much to everyone who supported the children’s sponsored fitness circuits with Kylie Grimes. We’d be very grateful if you could please send your child’s sponsorship form and money raised into school on the first day back after half-term (Monday 5th June).
Unfortunately school meal prices are increasing after half-term. HC3S is committed to pricing meals solely to cover costs without making a profit, but despite efforts and negotiations with suppliers, food prices have exceeded budgeted levels. Reducing the nutritional content or portion sizes of meals is not considered an appropriate option, so consequently HC3S must increase the school meal price by 20p, from £2.80 to £3, for all meal types from 5 June 2023.
Infant children and those who qualify for free school meals will continue to receive their school lunches for free. If your circumstances have changed and you believe you may be eligible for free school meals, please click here to check or contact the school office for assistance.
Please note all meals should be paid for in advance.

Farnham Youth Choir
The award-winning Farnham Youth Choir will be holding an open rehearsal for their Training Choir (Years 2-4) and Junior Choir (Years 5-8) on Wednesday 7th June in central Farnham.
The Training Choir is open to all children in this age group and there is no audition. The choir aims to encourage musical development, with relaxed and fun rehearsals. Entry to the Junior Choir is by a short, informal audition. The choir has exciting plans over the next few years, including performing at festivals and entering competitions. There is a very social atmosphere in the choir, with games as part of the learning and every member valued within the team.
The organisers would be delighted to welcome new singers along to try out the choirs. Bursary-funded places are available. For more information, please see www.fyc.org.uk/joinus.
