Notices:

Happy New Year! Welcome back and we hope you had a lovely holiday break.

A very BIG thank you for all the lovely Christmas cards and gifts at the end of term. It was really appreciated by the whole team.

Please ensure your child is coming to school with some extra warm layers on, as the cold weather is definitely here. All children should also have a warm coat in school.

Book List

As part of our focus on reading in school, we would like to develop the lending library of books within each class. This will enable the children to foster a passion and love of reading at Belmont and ensure that they have access to high quality texts.

Please find links to two book lists that have a variety of we would love to have in class.  Once a book has been donated to the class we will add it to the list of books purchased.  Please check this list to ensure that the book that you would like to donate is one that we don't already have.

Word Aware

Our topic this term is Who do you think you are?

The below list is part of an initiative called Word Aware that we are using in school. We thought it would be helpful to share this list with you so that you can use some of these words at home when discussing the topic. If your child speaks a different language at home, it would be helpful to discuss and translate these words using your home language. We may add to this list during the topic as new words are introduced.
