Spellings 
We have noticed there are some inaccuracies in the children’s spelling knowledge and have sent home the checklist for the statutory spellings for Years 3 and 4 this week. Please look for these in your child's bag.  Words have been highlighted for each individual child if they still need to learn them. Please take time to go over these at home. We will also set some of the words children found tricky for homework, through the website noticeboard. In addition, some children also have the Year 1 and 2 statutory spellings to learn if errors were found in their spellings.
New Books
We have updated the Year 6 book list to show the books that we already have in the year group.  A big thank you for all the wonderful new books we have received recently. They are in our book corners and are eagerly being read by the children. 
  
Key dates: 
Walking home 
Please check Parentmail or the link under 'Letters' on this page for the information and form if you wish your child to travel to or from school unaccompanied. Children will not be allowed to travel alone without written permission.

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 tick it off below.  Please check this list to ensure that the book that you would like to donate is one that we don't already have.

Water Bottles 

Please ensure that your child brings a named water bottle to school with them each day so that they can hydrate regularly throughout the day.

 

Word Aware

Our topic this term is 'Balance of Power.' 

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.

Handwriting 

As you may be aware Belmont uses a cursive handwriting scheme for those children who can consistently form all non-cursive letters correctly.
Here is a link to the handwriting guidelines to enable you to support your children practising letter formation at home.
