Welcome to JC5
Mrs Vaux, Mrs Watts and Miss Jones are looking forward to an exciting and busy autumn term with new pupils and some familiar faces from last year joining together to make up our Y5/6 class.
We hope you all had a fantastic summer and are ready for the new term.
We have much to look forward to this term including our harvest celebrations, a trip to Cheltenham Literature Festival and the ever popular pantomime to name but a few highlights. Y6s also have Bikeability and Y5s have a KNEX workshop where they will learn to combine design, technology and computing in a practical context.
Our topic is 'World War II' and any artefacts, books or photographs you may have to add to our topic display are always gratefully received. We will be covering aspects of The Home Front and evacuation as well as a sensitive look at The Holocaust and the impact of war on everyday Germans.
We welcome parent volunteers and helpers; extra pairs of hands are always useful! We are always grateful for the help and support we receive from all our parents, carers and families throughout the year. 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.
