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.'
    Parent
  • 'All adults in the school model very high expectations of themselves and of others. They show outstanding levels of care and concern for the personal development and well-being of each individual pupil.'
    Ofsted 2007
  • 'Moving on to secondary school, I will miss the teachers at Belmont, the great sense of a hard working community, my friends and the netball team.'
    Lara
  • 'On my first day at Belmont everyone was so welcoming and I made friends straight away'.

Year Six Notice Board

 

Notices

Next week, on Friday 28th September, we are off to the British Museum as part of our Ancient Greeks topic. Please ensure your child has a packed lunch with them and water. 


E-Safety

We have looked at E-Safety in class this week and would like to remind parents that there is more information on the school website within the Wellbeing section. We know how valuable technology can be but also want to ensure our children are safe when using tech online. Children should be aware of the ways of keeping safe online and know what to do if they are unsure. The school has subscribed to Parent Zone, which offers free information and there are links at the bottom of the website homepage.


Reminders for the moment:
Monday - Homework returned to school
Wednesday & Thursday - PE
Thursday - Homework handed out

Please ensure that PE kits are in school every Monday due to clubs, enrichment and PE commitments. They can then be taken home on a Friday for a freshen up!

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.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 20 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.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.
