- Please remember the children should have a healthy snack for morning playtime.

- Glue Sticks: please send in a glue stick for your child to use. 


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.

Reading for Pleasure books for class
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 books that we would love to have in class.  Once a book has been donated to the class we will add a tick to show we now have it.  Please check the list to ensure that the book that you would like to donate is one that we don't already have.

These books will be stamped to show who has generously donated them and shared with all the class.

The books come from the Recommended Books for Year 5

 Word Aware

Our topic this term is Awesome Earth

Please see the attached vocabulary list for our new topic. This 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 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.

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.

Daily (at least 20 mins)

Reading Record books must be brought into school on a Monday to be checked.  We encourage children to write a reflective comment when they have read. Children are encouraged to read aloud often to an adult and discuss what they have read. Children should share their opinions, inferences and/or predictions about what they read. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.

Grammar & Punctuation Set on Wednesday and due back on Monday.

Set on Wednesday and tested through dictation the following Monday. The word-lists for years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6 are a mixture of words learners frequently use in their writing and those which are often misspelled. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, however with enough practise and resilience we know you will get the hang of them!
