Welcome to Bentinck Primary & Nursery School. Together we make a difference. We Start back to school on Wednesday 20th April 2022




In literacy, we are encouraging the children to develop their speaking and listening skills, with a particular focus on recalling simple stories, talking about what they are doing and recalling what they have done. 


We are strengthening their fine motor skills, to support their writing skills.  We do this through a variety of activities, including threading pasta, using tweezers and pegs.

In our phonics, we will be focussing on letter sounds through the Read Write Inc Scheme.  This scheme will be taught throughout school.  Support materials will be sent home for you to share with your children. 


Throughout the year your child will be given reading books and a reading record for both staff and parents to write a note about their child’s reading.  They will start with non-worded book and be given a character list for the children to become familiar with the characters in some of the stories.  If you have any questions about reading then please ask a member of staff and they will be able to help you.  J

Your child will be send home with a pack of resources which will include: name writing practise, board pen and rubber, character cards, number cards, a play dough recipe and a 'wow moment' piece of paper to write down any special moments your children has had.  More information will accompany your resource pack.
