English at Joydens Wood Junior School
“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”
― Roald Dahl, Matilda
Welcome to our English area. Please explore the separate links to find out how we learn English at JWJS.
We launched our new online platform SPaG.com at the start of September 2020. This is a new system for us which many other schools use as a supplement to their English curriculum. Parents, please do not panic if you are unaware of what a fronted adverbial is or where to use parenthesis correctly. The platform will tell the teachers what areas the children are confident in while identifying where we can support them further. As we get more used to the system, in time, we will develop a reward system that will most likely work alongside our Class DoJo platform too.
