Mrs Vaux and Mrs Hughes hope you all had a very merry Christmas and wish you a happy and healthy new year. We would both like to thank you so much for all the lovely gifts we received, your generosity and thoughtfulness are much appreciated.
The spring brings the promise of longer, lighter days and we are looking forward to another exciting and busy term. Highlights include: JC6 and EC3 exhibiting artwork at The Guild in Chipping Campden, the 'Young Voices' concert at the Genting Arena, Birmingham, the ever-popular House Dance competition and, of course, SATs preparation for the tests in May.
Our topic is 'The Victorians’ and will include exploring the reign of Queen Victoria, Victorian family life and inventors and inventions. We are also hoping to have a ‘Victorian Day’ and hopefully, an educational school trip. Any artefacts, books or photographs you may have to add to our topic display are always gratefully received.
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 friendly 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 which will be checked in class on Friday mornings and a house-point awarded to children who have noted reading at home four times.
