Belmont Primary School

  • 'Belmont has always struck the right balance between academia and learning for life.'
    Parent
  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'
    Parent Governor
  • 'The children are really fortunate to have such wonderful opportunities which is why they love Belmont and which makes it such an amazing school.'

Year One Notice Board

Last updated: 13.11.18

 

Notices 

It has come to our attention that a few children have already lost their reading record books. As reading is highly important at this stage of the children's learning we would ask if you could ensure that extra care is taken to ensure that they are not lost or misplaced.

 

Year one PE lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays for Pears and Mondays and Fridays for Cherries but it is helpful to have a PE kit in school everyday as these lessons are subject to change.

Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

Y1 Autumn Term Creative Home Learning

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 10 - 15 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Infant Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Nurturing young readers

Reading with your child in Key Stage 1

 

Key words/ Spelling 

The children will be bringing home some Common Exception Word (CEW) lists containing the first 18 CEWs . We will be assessing the children on their spelling of these words when we return from half term. It would be useful if you could practice these with your children over the holidays. Please also make sure that your children practice how to spell their surnames as well as using capital and lowercase letters correctly in their name.

 

Number Facts and Times Tables

It would be useful if the children could be given opportunities at home to practice the following key maths skills: number formation, number recognition up to 100, counting forwards and backwards, recognising one more or one less of a given number, adding and subtracting single and two digit numbers, and doubles up to 20.
