Welcome to JC5
Mrs Vaux and Mrs Watts hope you all had a good Easter break and had chance to take a well-earned rest. The summer term is always a special time in school and we are looking forward to another exciting and busy term.
For Year 5s, it is a crucial preparation period for the challenges and responsibilities of graduating to Year 6 in September.
This is the final term at primary school for our current Year 6s; it is a time of hard work and fun in equal measure. We have SATs in May followed by our residential PGL trip to Torquay followed by the eagerly anticipated end of year KS2 production, Sports Day and our Leavers' Services.
Good luck, Year 6.
Our topic is 'Local History' and any artefacts, books or photographs you may have to add to our topic display are always gratefully received. We will have a particular focus on the historical importance of water mills in Chipping Campden and are collaborating with the Landmark Trust to help our local history come to life.
We welcome parent volunteers and helpers; extra pairs of hands are always useful! Please do not hesitate to pop in and talk to us if you would like to come and help in school.
Please find below the Y5/6 andY3/4 statutory spelling lists.
End of Key Stage 2 SATs include a Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test. Pupils will be tested on a random selection of words from across the Key Stage lists including derivations of words. For example, pupils may be asked to spell: embarrass/embarrassment, persuade/persuasively, persuasion, occupy/occupation, etc.
Please help your children to learn these spellings by helping them with their weekly spelling tests, using words in sentences and understanding definitions of words. Many thanks.
A reminder that children should be reading at home at least four times a week to an adult or independently. Parents should initial all reading activities in Homework Diaries. Many thanks.
