Welcome toBelmont Community Primary SchoolAchieving excellence, putting children first

Years 5 & 6

Welcome to our home learning page which we hope you will find helpful to support your child's learning at home.  From June 2020, Sambar Class will be using Microsoft Teams alongside the Learning Projects, in order that Mr Grossmith can work more closely with children who are currently not in school. Please click on the link below to find out more about Microsoft Teams. We will continue to upload the Learning Projects here each week. You will also find lots of information on the class links below, including the Learning Projects and letters sent home via ParentMail each week since March. There are also links to an overview of the Learning Projects and to the statutory word lists. At the bottom of the page you will find a list of fabulous websites your child might like to use - just click on the red links to go directly to the sites!


 Don't forget you can also check out our class Twitter pages - Sambar Class and Taruca Class as we'll post lots of challenges and ideas on there too. Thank you for your support.
