St.Stephen's School

Class 5GC

Welcome to 5GC - an inspiring class taught by Grace Cooke and skilfully supported by Bindu and Jash, who know everything there is to know about St. Stephen’s having worked here for many years.

This year, we continue to develop into independent and responsible citizens of St. Stephen’s and the wider community. After a challenging few months, this year promises to be both exciting and engaging and we are eager to make the most of every learning opportunity to reach our full potential.

The year ahead will see us tackling new concepts such as decimals and algebra in maths, as well as developing our creative writing in English, not to mention honing our spelling, grammar and punctuation skills in preparation for Year 6. We will be learning all about Earth & Space, immersing ourselves in Viking and Anglo Saxon history and discovering Henry Moore’s WWII shelter paintings, amongst many other fascinating topics.

However, no matter what task we are undertaking, we will follow our class WE CARE charter. We will always have a positive attitude, learn from our mistakes and aspire to be the best students we can be. We will always be kind, courteous and respectful and ensure that every day is as good as the last.

We are in Room 17 so please come and say hello and see our work.

5GC Class Charter

Each class at St. Stephen’s Primary School will complete a class charter, outlining agreements for members of the class and duty bearers (adults). All pupils are entitled to receive their rights. This class charter will form the basis of a display in class, be displayed on the class website page and also be used for class disciplinary matters.
