A Thursday news to finish the term, and what a busy week we’ve had! On Monday, we held our Spring term toddler group session, the children, alongside our Nursery and Reception children, enjoyed some Easter crafts. We will host another in the summer term.  
On Monday night, lots of children stayed for the Bentham Pet Rescue Film Night fundraiser – which has raised a further £55.00. Thank you to Mrs Mather for renting the film for them all to enjoy and Mrs Wilson for donating the snacks.
On Tuesday, our annual Easter Activity day took place. The children enjoyed a range of activities in the morning, followed by the egg balancing challenge and pace egging in the afternoon.
On Wednesday morning our gymnasts headed out to the cluster competition and what an amazing job they all did! Huge congratulations to the team! First placed overall, and lots of pair medals too.
Thank you to all the families who joined us for the Easter Service in Church on Wednesday afternoon.
And finally, today, we held our second spelling bee competition. The children were tested on the year group spellings they are currently learning. This term’s winners were:

congratulations to all our winners.
The Spelling bee trophy for KS2 was awarded to Ruby H for the most correct spellings overall in KS2 and Reed in KS1. 
Our next spelling bee will take place before the Summer holidays where we would love to see all the children compete for points for their teams. The more practise the better. Please could the trophies be returned to school towards the end of the next term.
