If you are visiting Belton House over the Christmas period, look out for our Belmont Star which is now on display!
The FOBS team led by Mrs James were recently invited to participate in the Belton House Community Star project and were asked to design a star representative of who we are, what we do and what Belton House means to our school.
Leader of our Art Club, Mrs Tilbury-Leeson and Mrs James worked together to create a fabulous artwork which shows hand prints made by the children in Art Club and pictures from events run by the FOBS team to support the children.
In addition to the star, Belton House also asked for wording to describe what Belton House means to our school; on the sign next to our star it says:
'Belton House and its surrounding landscapes, including Bellmount Tower, hold a special significance for
the students of Belmont Community Primary School. (Bellmount Tower is part of the school's/FOBS logo.)
Functioning as both a historical landmark and a distinctive educational resource,
it instills a sense of local pride and connection to their community's rich heritage.
Educational excursions to Belton House provide students with diverse insights into history/architecture
and even sustainability, enhancing their learning journey and creating lasting memories.
We all feel truly lucky to have such an amazing space right on our doorstep!'
Visitors to the National Trust property, including those attending the Christmas Lights Trail, can see our star along with others from local community groups - they look even more fabulous in the dark when the stars are lit up! We hope many of you can go along to enjoy them.
Our thanks go to Charlotte Beaver, Volunteering & Community Officer at Belton House for this wonderful opportunity to participate in such a lovely community event.
