Welcome to the Reindeer Page!
Dear Parents and Carers,
Hello and welcome to the Reindeer Class page. I'm really looking forward to meeting my new class in September! Below, you can find photos of some of the exciting things we did last year.

We may not be in school together but I just had to let you know that our first chicked hatched on 23 March, swiftly followed by more the next day. Meet Humphrey and friends!
RE Week - Making A Promise
During RE week this term, the class took part in a workshop with Jane from Barnabas in Schools which we all enjoyed very much. Also during the week, we learnt the story of Noah's Ark and how a rainbow was God's sign of his promise never to flood the world again. The children thought very carefully of a promise they would like to make - you can see some super examples below.
How To Keep Safe Online
Even the very youngest in the school use the Internet, both at school and at home, so it’s important they know how to keep safe when doing so. On Safer Internet day, we read and talked about ‘Digiduck’s Big Decision’ and they drew some lovely pictures of the important things they remembered. We're proud to say that after sharing the drawings on Twitter, the author of Digiduck - Lindsay Buck - replied to say how much she liked them too!

As part of our topic on the Polar Regions, the children have been learning about reindeer and have created some super information sheets and wonderful paintings. They selected and blended their colours, using a finger to paint the reindeer before adding more detail. You can see some fabulous examples below.
Chinese New Year
We had lots of fun celebrating the Chinese New Year. The children had the opportunity to try Chinese food using chopsticks; write Chinese letters on fans as well as paint and make some wonderful dragons!
We Love Maths!
The children are really enjoying learning about Maths! They love finding out how much things weigh, sorting coins and then adding them together to buy the shopping!
The children certainly enjoyed their first Christmas at Belmont! I was so proud of them all when they took part in our Christmas production of the Nativity. On the last day of term, they loved taking part in the Christingle and then having their party in the classroom. It was so exciting when Santa came in and gave the class a present! Later, we joined with the rest of the school to take part in the Christmas singalong. They sang and danced so well in front of the large audience.
Fun With Rev Sam!
We had a wonderful time when Rev Sam from the Church of the Ascension visited our classroom. She shared the story of the Nativity and the children thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas crafts.
The Little Red Hen
We have really enjoyed the story of the Little Red Hen this term and had a fun time baking our own bread just like the hen did.
An Exciting Afternoon!
The children were so excited to see a fire engine parked on their playground and loved the opportunity to take a closer look! it was great fun using the hose!
Yummy Fruit Kebabs!
We have been learning about repeated patterns in Maths, and used our knowledge to create some very yummy fruit kebabs!
The Rainbow Fish
We have been reading the wonderful book, 'The Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister. It tells the story of a fish with shiny, multi-coloured scales who finds himself without any friends. We really enjoyed talking about the fish, how he felt and how he learnt to share. The children made some super Rainbow Fish of their own too!
All About Me Topic
We have made a great start to the term with our work on 'All About Me'. The children have created some wonderful self portraits.
I'm very pleased with the way the children are settling into school. Learning and playing together so well. We are going to have a great year!
