Bentley Weekly Update 06/12/19

Words of The Week

Hedgehogs – ‘rejoice’ and ‘ornament’

Adders – ‘parched’ and ‘triumphant’ 

Christmas ProductionsIf you have been asked to provide costumes for KS1 play, they need to be in on Monday please in a named bag, thank you.  KS2 costumes need to be in by Monday too please.  Please encourage your children to practise over the weekend please. KS2 – Don’t forget backing tracks and lyrics are on the website.

For the evening performances, Wolves children need to be in school at 5:30pm please, to get ready to perform and KS2 children need to arrive by 6:30pm at the latest please. All children need to come in through the back door off the playground and not through the front door please. For those of you who have children in both groups, a crèche will be running during the performances for siblings.

Don’t forget, we will be having a collection bucket out for donations to the church refurbishment project. There will also be the annual Christmas cake being raffled off between the two evening performances. Please see Aimee for a raffle ticket if you can’t be there on the evening. 

Christmas Club – Today was the last session of the Christmas Club; we have had such a fun time!!! The children have made more things than ever before and this is all due to the number of parents who have helped out at the club (despite it being such an early start!). Our sincere thanks go to Sally, Ali, Katie, Sam, Helen, Carli, Matt and Sharna; we would not have been able to include so many children and make so many lovely things without your help. 

Years 1 & 2 Year 1 and 2 have not got any spellings or maths homework next week unless they have not completed homework from this week.  If they don't have their homework books, they haven't got homework as Mrs Rudge has kept them in school! 

Christmas Jumpers – Children are very welcome to wear their Christmas jumpers on Friday 13th Dec, ready for the Christmas Fayre, and on Monday 16th Dec for the Christmas dinner. Other than the jumpers, normal school uniform still needs to be worn though please. 

Swimming Years 2-4 – Next week is the last session of swimming for the year. Swimming lessons will resume on Monday 13th January. 

Suffolk Owl Sanctuary Assembly – We were visited by the Suffolk owl Sanctuary on Wednesday who treated us to a wonderful assembly. We hope you enjoy the passes they gave to the children! 

Timings on Friday Family assembly will be at 9am next Friday due to the Christmas Fayre after school. Christmas Fayre - please let Mrs Robinson know if you and your child can help run either the Lucky Dip, guess the sweets in the jar or the tombola stall for half an hour. We will begin the Fayre by singing outside on the steps so please gather on the playground for 3:05 pm.

Adders Singing – The children in Adders class sang beautifully at the pub this week for the Seniors’ Lunch. The residents that were there were full of praise for their performance. Well done Adders. 

Library Books – All library books need to be returned next week please, by Friday at the latest.
