Achieving BSL level 1 at Bentley West Primary School

Congratulations to our first group of children achieving their level 1 qualification in BSL.  Many of our children have been learning to sign since they were in nursery so already have a good level of skill, this puts them in the perfect position to get this recognised qualification!  The skills and knowledge the children gain are in great demand and unlock a whole world of opportunities for them in the future.

Well done!

Birmingham Children’s Hospital

On Friday 23rd October Bentley West staff and children dressed as superheroes to raise money for. We decided on this cause as it is very close to our hearts as some of our pupils are under the care of the hospital.  As a school we managed to raise £500 so Mrs Bayliss and Mrs Gladwish along with pupils Freya Felton, Leonardo and Lydia Diponio and William McDonald visited the hospital to donate the money.  They had the privilege of having a tour of the hospital and found out how the money would be spent.

Balloon release

One of our balloon’s released for our Live Aid concert has been returned…

The balloon released by Lilly Evans managed to travel all the way to a place called Wolfenbüttel in Germany!

We received a lovely card and a map of its travels from the lady that found it – we hope to write back to her so watch this space.
