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


Welcome To Class R!

We joined in with the take 10 challenge - we stopped what we were doing and shared a book for 10 minutes.  

House points



Our theme this week is based all about the story 'The Gruffalo'.  We would normal look at this book for World Book Day but this year we are looking at the book all week!  All activities are in the work packs and must be collected on 1.3.21.  They are all based around the Gruffalo story.  It would be lovely if on Thursday you could dress up as a character from a book and send me a photo of this for our website!  Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Good morning,


I hope everyone is happy and well.  Tomorrow is Monday again and time to collect the work packs.  I hope you all will collect tomorrow to support your child's education.  Don't forget if you return your reading book I can change it for another and please bring your work back for me to mark.  I have put together a timetable to help manage time with your child's education.  This is only a guide and does not need to be follow exactly, it is there to help.

Good afternoon,


Work packs can be collect on Monday 1st Feb 9.30-10.00.  Our playground is too icy to have a lot of people on.  Therefore I have added some activities on our class page to have a go this week.  Please also use the websites provided to support you child. 




Good snowy morning!  I hope everyone enjoyed the snow yesterday. I would love to see photos of you enjoying the snow to put on our class page!  I have added up the house points so far and it is very close but King are in the lead.  I have marked all of you work...well done for working so hard. 


Please keep a look out for a message from school and the website about re-opening and collecting work packs.


Stay safe today!  It is very icy out there.


Enjoy your snow day everyone!

Have you built a snowman??

Good afternoon everyone.  I hope you are all well. 


Thank you for all the work you have returned.  I have marked it this morning and I am really pleased with all the hard work you are doing.  Please remember to collect packs on each Monday between 9.30 - 10.00.  You can return your work at the same time.  If you have not collected your child's work packs them please collect on Monday.  It is very important that you support your child with their education. 


If you return your reading books they will be changed on Monday as well.  All children have a reading book at home.  If you have miss-placed this then please let me know and a payment of £2.50 will be asked from you.  This can be paid using our online system. 


Stay Safe and have a lovely weekend!



Good morning everyone, I hope you are all staying safe and well.  I hope everyone collects the children's school packs this morning and remember to return their child's reading books and completed work packs.  You will receive another book on return of your child's old book. 


Please view the videos on Class R page to support your child's learning. 


Any questions please email





Good morning everyone!  I hope you are doing well and staying safe.  I have uploaded some phonic videos for the week.  Please let you children watch these videos. 


Picking up your work packs.  Just a little reminder ….it is very important that you collect your work packs once a week.  This will be every Monday between 9.30 and 10.00 am.  If you have any problems collecting due to Covid symptoms then please let us know. 


Thank you to all the parents who have collected your packs and working hard with your children. 






Good morning all, I hope you are keeping safe and to the families who are unwell I hope you recover quickly. 


I hope you have all been busy with the work packs you collected on Wednesday.  If you have not collected yet please collect on Monday 11th at 9.30 for next weeks work pack. 


On the Monday 18th when you collect your next work pack please return the work your child has done.  There will be a box for you to put it in.  Please be aware I will leave these in the box for 48 hours before I start to look through them.


Please look at the links on our class page for phonic and maths videos for your child to join in with.  I do have more videos but I am having a slight technical issue with uploading them onto our page but they will be on ASAP. 


Please remember to email myself or Miss McCaffrey with any questions or if your child is wanting to say hello or to tell me about their day.  We would love to hear from them!  It is important that you support you child with the work packs and by watching the videos.  If you child is struggling to write their name then please support them with this.  In their book bag they should have their name writing card along with a pen and rubber.  They should also have number cards to order along with a phonic mat to help read and write letters.


If a member of your household becomes ill with Covid please make school aware by calling our school office.  0115 9151567


Remember to stay safe everyone!  We are missing seeing the children. 


Thank you

Home Schooling Support



I hope everyone is doing well and have collected the work packs from school today. There is a work pack for this week and next week.  The next collection for work packs will be on Monday 18th at 9.30 then each Monday after that at the same time. The work I am sending is linked to what we would normally be doing in class to the best of our ability.  In the early years we learn a lot through play so please encourage your child to play at home.  It is an important time to also keep them active.  I have put some links below with some ideas of keeping active inside.

'just dance' on you tube is another fun active resource


If you need any support or have any questions then please feel free to email either myself or Miss McCaffrey on the following emails.  Please be patient with our responses and we are in and out of school and I have my own children to home school also.  But we will respond as soon as we can. 


Please take the time to work with your children with the work we have set for them.  Please remember not to do the work packs all in one day. 

Other Online Links


The BBC are offering daily lessons for the children.  I will be exploring this with my own children.  Please let us know if you find anything which you have found beneficial to your child.





Thank you for a lovely Autumn term!  I hope you all have a wonderful break!  See you in the new year!
