Bentley weekly Update 1.12.23

 

Important Information to Share

Gymnastics Taster on Monday
Further to the email last term regarding an after school gymnastics club. We had lots of interest so we will be looking to run this after Christmas.  To help children decide whether it is something they would be interested in doing we have taster sessions for all classes on Monday morning.  We will then give you details of the costs, day and times next week for you to be able to sign up. Depending on numbers we may need to restrict to certain year groups as there is a maximum number for safety. Check the weekly update next week for this club and any other we may be offering.
 
Performance Tickets - these are available to book from 3pm today - see below for more details
 
Flu Vaccinations - catch up clinics - please see a letter attached if you still wish for your child to have their flu nasal spray.
 
Photos - if you took photos at our tree service, please remember we request that they are not added to social media unless it is of your child only. Thank you
