Barasingha 2023 - 2024

Earthquakes!

We have learnt about volcanoes and earthquakes this term and compared what we have found out to the recent volcano in Iceland and the earthquake in Japan. We really enjoyed testing our earthquake proof marshmallow and cocktail stick buildings on the jelly!

NSPCC Number Day - Dress Up For Digits/NSPCC Rocks!

Children wore an item of clothing with a number on it and made a suggested donation of £1 towards the NSPCC on Numbers Day. We were very impressed by the creative outfits and the money raised will help the NSPCC run its Speak Out Stay Safe programme to help children understand what abuse is and what to do if they're scared or worried.

 

We spent the day doing lots of fun Maths activities, and we took part in a Times Table Rock Stars Competition: NSPCC ROCKS! Each child who entered had a maximum of 1 hour to get as many correct answers as possible. The children were given some time in class to do this but completed their hour at home.

 

Thank you so much to everyone who supported this great event!

Forest School

This year, with support from the Woodland Trust, Mrs Pallier is introducing Forest School to Belmont! Two classes are taking part this term and we were very excited to start our outdoor learning adventure after Christmas. Forest School aims to support the whole child – their physical, mental and emotional development - and build on a child’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to take supported risks, make choices and initiate learning for themselves, in a woodland or natural environment. Barasingha Class have their weekly Forest School session on a Wednesday - whatever the weather! As well as a suitable coat, we ask that children are provided with a pair of named wellies in a bag that can be brought into school on their Forest School day or kept in school if easier! 

Making Aqueducts

We enjoyed making our aqueducts and testing them to see if they worked. Great work everyone!

Planting Snowdrops & Bluebells

We take great pride in supporting the wider school community and we were delighted to be invited to support SKDC and the Friends of Queen Elizabeth Park in planting snowdrops and bluebells. We had a fabulous time - well done everyone!

Children In Need Day

Everyone looked fab for Children in Need Day, raising lots of money for the charity. Well done Barasingha Class!

Corum Life Education Visit

We all loved seeing Harold the Giraffe and learning how to keep our bodies and minds healthy when Jenny and Sarah from Coram Life Education came to Belmont this week. Children took part in a fantastic workshop discussing topics such as healthy diets and understanding what is important to us.

Keeping Safe Online

The children really enjoyed the visit by Hannah from the Lincolnshire Stay Safe Partnership where they learned more about keeping themselves safe online.

A Wonderful Harvest Celebration!

I am very proud of the children along with those in Impala Class who welcomed their parents and carers to our harvest celebration. They all did a brilliant job and sang beautifully! They thought about why we celebrate harvest in the autumn and why we support people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

 

We would like to say a big thank you for all the wonderful food donations which we have delivered to Grantham Foodbank.

A Great Time At Rand Farm!

We were very excited to go on our residential trip to Rand Farm! The children loved being able to feed and look after the various animals on the farm. In a very busy few days we learnt how to spin wool, make a bird box and some delicious pizzas! We also enjoyed a tractor and trailer ride and a lovely walk in Great West Wood.

 

We all had a brilliant time and we would like to give huge thanks everyone at Rand Farm for making us feel so welcome.
