Information on our class structure and curriculum in KS2 at SJL
In line with our prospectus, classes in KS2 are mixed ability with some year groups being split year groups. In the case where TEACHING classes are based on ability the pupils parent/ guardian will be notified individually and the reasons explained for the grouping.

In Maths pupils are set as this allows the teaching to maximise the development of pupils skills and understanding. Homework is provided through MY MATHS. Please see the attached link for explanation of  how to maximise homework in addition to set weekly HW by class teacher.

In literacy classes pupils are mixed ability with spelling groups based on pupils spelling ages and their consistent understanding of spelling rules. The school uses Nelson Spelling. The book colour reflects the expected spelling patterns for that year group;
RED =Y1-2, YELLOW = Y2-3, PURPLE= Y3-4, BLUE= Y4, GREEN = Y5, ORANGE =Y6 
Remember SJL has an open door policy and communication between the school and parents is vital to us developing your child's education. If you would like to discuss any issues with the class teacher or pop in for a chat please book a time slot with Mrs Chambers. 

Hello and welcome to Year 3/4. We have an exciting half term ahead!
Our topic this term will be 'Sensoria'. We will be learning how sound travels and how effectively it can travel through different materials.  We will be demonstrating how sound travels using vibrations and carry out fair tests to find out more. We will be exploring a range of light sources both natural and artificial. We will also be looking at how shadows are formed and differences between materials. We will also be having a lovely visit from the Techniquest team!

Within Language the children will be studying 'The Dragon Slayer'. They will be looking at play scripts and how films are made and the techniques used ready to create their own GreenScreen of the Dragon Slayer. 

Here's to a fantastic term ahead! 

Maths is given out on Wednesday to be completed by the following Wednesday.
 Spelling words are given out every Friday. Spelling Book will go home on a Friday and returned the following Friday for weekly Friday spelling test
Topic/RE homework is given out on a Friday to be returned on the following Monday.

PE is on a Thursday with Mr Ivins so make sure you have your kit in school.
