Hello Class R,

Take a look below, you have messages from your new teachers.  Your teachers will be Mrs Deegan, Mrs Chapman and Miss Greyson.

They are all really looking forward to meeting you in September.


The photographs below show what the Class 1 environment will look like.

We hope you like your new classroom.

Mrs Burton (Class 2)


Sadly, Mrs Burton will be leaving our school at the end of the summer term. She has been teaching at Bentinck for a very long time and has taught lots of you in Class 2 and I am sure lots of your brothers and sisters. 


As we can’t do the usual things we would when someone leaves, Miss Tibbitts and the KS1 team would love you to make special cards or send in messages to say goodbye to Mrs Burton. If you have older brothers or sisters who remember Mrs Burton teaching them they could make a card or write a message too. Please send your messages, cards or pictures to Miss Tibbitts at by Friday 10th July.


Mrs Benton is Retiring.


Sadly, Mrs Benton will be leaving our school at the end of the summer term. She has been teaching for a very long time and she has decided to retire from teaching this year. This means she will be leaving all the other schools she teaches computing in too.

We will all miss Mrs Benton enormously and her fantastic computing lessons. As we can’t have a special assembly and give her cards and flowers like we usually do when someone leaves our school, we thought we could have a special retirement page on the website for Mrs Benton.

We would like you to make a special card, write a message or draw a beautiful picture to thank Mrs Benton for teaching you. You could even video a short message for her if you are feeling brave. Maybe if you have older brothers or sisters who remember Mrs Benton teaching them they could make a card or write a message too.

Please send your messages, cards or pictures to Miss Chambers at by Friday 10th July. We will put everyone’s messages together in a special retirement presentation for Mrs Benton. Remember to put your name and class on your card or message so Mrs Benton knows who it is from.

Good luck and have fun making your cards and messages.




While we have been busy doing our home schooling and working I have found some time to bake a few cakes for the special people in my life!  It is my daughters and step son's birthday tomorrow (7 and 17) so I always have to make two in one week!   I thought I would share a few photos of the cakes I've made. 



Keep going everyone!

If anyone is running out of stationary supplies then Mrs Burton has very kindly put a few packs together of paper, pencil etc to collect from school on Tuesday - Thursday between 9-11 O'clock .   

While we're apart

Good morning Class R.  It's Miss McCaffrey here!  A little message to say I am missing all of you and hope you are all  staying in and staying safe! If you want to email me to let me know how you are doing then that will be great!


Stay safe

This term’s topic is ‘Ourselves, People who help us and Celebrations’.

We will be exploring these topics in many different ways.  We are always listening to what the children enjoy and we will try to plan our learning around the children’s interests.  So please keep a look out for your child's photo on our class page.  


Just look how good class R are!
