Belmont Primary School

    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.'

Notices

New as of 19.02.18

Please see updated Key Dates below

 

Welcome back! We hope everyone had a lovely half-term and we're looking forward to another exciting half term of learning.

 

Book Week is fast approaching and a ParentMail has been sent home with information regarding our author visits. KS2 will have a visit from Ross Montgomery which is very exciting! A letter was sent home last week that contained a slip to return if you would like to purchase one of his books to be signed upon his visit. Please return this slip to school in an envelope with the appropriate amount of cash by Friday 9th February to either the office or the class teacher. Thank you!

 

Please note that there will be no swimming tomorrow - 20.02.17

Swimming will begin again next week - 27.02.18

 

Important Notice: It has come to our attention that there has been a growing number of children that have been missing swimming recently. We understand that kits can be forgotten but as this is part of our PE curriculum, we have the same expectations as with PE kit. We will discuss this with individuals but please be mindful that swimming is part of the PE curriculum and we do not want them missing out! If you do not want your child to take part due to illness, please send a note in to the class teacher prior to the swimming lesson. Thank you for your continued support! It is lovely to see the children enjoying swimming and they have shown fantastic progress since the start of the year.

Previous On-going Notices: 

Snacks-

In KS2 children are required to bring in their own snacks to have at playtime. We are a healthy eating school so request that these are healthy snacks. The children are aware of this and we will be monitoring it carefully!

 

Routines

Swimming- Every Tuesday morning at Brentford Leisure Centre. Children need to bring their swimming costume, towel and swimming hat in a bag ever week and take it home again that day. Goggles are optional.

PE- Every Monday afternoon. Children will need a full Belmont PE kit with some warmer clothes as we get into the colder weather. Please make sure that everything is labelled.

French- Thursday afternoons.

Recorders- Thursday afternoons. The children will be able to bring their recorders home to practice so please make sure that these are returned to school for the lesson each Thursday. The recorders are on loan from Hounslow so please ensure they are looked after.

 

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 15 - 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. 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 Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

 

As previously mentioned we will check the children's Reading Record books every Monday but children can change their reading book at any point during the week if they have read the ones they already have. We are really encouraging them to take ownership with this and have discussed the importance of reading everyday.
