We are very pleased to let you know that this year we have invested in a range of online support for our children at Belmont. All of the content is age appropriate and safe for the children to use. All of the sites can be used with a desktop, laptop or tablet.
The three sites we are using are: Zumos, Times Tables Rock Stars and Purple Mash
As part of our Keeping Children Safe in the Modern World programme for the year, we have invested in membership to the Zumos website.. This website is supported by Lincolnshire CAMHS as a way of improving and supporting the mental health of our children. Children will be issued with a personal login.
Zumos aims to build self-confidence and well being. The website contains a chill out space to help your child to practise being a mindful person and build their inner strength to be a resilient person. It can help to find happiness in your child's life every day. The website also has an area which can help a child recognise how to be their own best friend, their greatest motivator, personal trainer and wisest mentor. There is a whole library of expert written vocal recordings on how to deal with any issues a child might be facing in the categories of feelings, life, relationships and body. Your child's access to the recordings will be monitored by the school allowing us to inform you should your child need support with a specific area.
Times Tables Rock Stars
This is a fun and challenging programme designed to help children master the times tables!
It will be used in school, with children being issued with their own login, and can be accessed at home too. Regular short bursts will help your child improve in their times tables. To be a Times Tables Rock Star the children will have to answer any multiplication fact up to 12x12 in less than 3 seconds!
There are many player modes and they can play by themselves, against others from their class/school and can challenge other children from all over the world.
Over the course of the next few weeks and months, your child WILL get faster and more accurate with the times tables as long as they use it regularly. The goal is for all participating rockers to be Times Tables Rock Stars after 20 weeks of using the site.

Children will have access to the Purple Mash website, a whole world of fun and exciting learning opportunities in one safe place. Purple Mash is a comprehensive suite of online learning tools and content, designed to be used by primary aged children in the classroom and at home.
As a parent you can find out about your child's learning on Purple Mash and support them beyond the classroom by registering with the Parent Portal. This allows you to easily see the learning your child has been doing on Purple Mash. You can start using the Parent Portal by:
