Read the tutorials for extending a basic site

You add something like this to your class, directly taken from the tutorial:

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new CalendarDateField('Date'), 'Content');
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Author'), 'Content');
return $fields;

The line in the above code Root.Content.Main refers to your site structure.

Root is the start/top level, Content refers to the content tab, and main is the main tab. Just change the name to a new tab and it will make it for you.
