Belmont's got Talent!

The school will soon be holding a talent competition and we will be selecting two 'acts' from across our year group. The children can sing/dance/play an instrument or showcase any other talent they have! They can enter as individuals or as part of a larger group with other children from their class. We will hold a semi-final, in our year group,  on Friday 15th July to select the acts that will enter the whole school competition.  

Please note: Tickets for each performance of 'Robin Hood And The Sherwood Hoodies' will be available to purchase through Parent Pay shortly. Tickets will be restricted to two per family. Siblings will not need to attend as they will be invited to a dress rehearsal during the school day.

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.
