Class Reading Books for Autumn Term
Swimming - Please make sure your child's clothes are labelled and that shoes with laces can be tied independently.
Monday 4th - 8th March - Book week.

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 the book list that has 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 4 List which can be found below.
Our topic this term is 'Rivers'
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.
Word Aware - Rivers
Further information about the learning in history and geography is available on our new Knowledge Organisers. These are available on the Maple and Rowan Google Classrooms in the Classwork tab. The link will be updated when the children have joined their new Google classroom.
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.

French homework is optional but we recommend children use Year 4's French Google Classroom, Linguascope and Belmont's French Website to consolidate what has been taught in class.
French Google Classroom
All year 4 children have be invited to their French Google classroom where they can find French tasks and activities.
Belmont French Website
Go to Belmont's French website to find out what we have been doing in class and for extra activities and videos. The French website is updated regularly. Children must login to their Belmont Google account to access the website.
We recommend children use Linguascope regularly to learn French and other languages. The Linguascope link and log in details can be found in year 4's French Google classroom.
