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.http://www.stjohnlloydrcprimaryschool.co.uk/cms/media/news/my_maths_help_sheet.pdf

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. 

WELCOME TO YEAR 4/5 

Croeso i flwyddyn 4/5! We really hope you are all looking forward to this year as much as we are. We have so many exciting opportunities and activities planned, which we hope will add to the wonderful memories you’ve built so far at St John Lloyd!

Our topic this term is ‘Global Gourmet’ and to start we are going on a class trip to Pizza Express to learn about different food groups. We will also be exploring how food is transported around the world and using our senses to identify different foods. We will look at the cost of food and will be writing instructions for some of our favourite recipes. Alongside this, we will consider the food that is healthy for our teeth and food that is not. Finally, we will explore how our digestive system works!  

In our Literacy lessons, we will be studying the works of June Crebbin whilst reading ‘Invasion’ – Let the battle begin! Our RE topic is ‘People’ and we will be thinking about our Big Question – Where do I come from? In addition to this we will develop our ICT skills with a focus this term on Digital Literacy. We will be considering our behaviour online and how to think critically about shared information. We will also continue to develop our Welsh knowledge and our Maths skills will be posted to this page.

It is very important to complete your homework - Bug Club, My Maths and spelling homework will be set weekly. Alongside this comprehension and research projects will be set too! 

We wish you all every success for Year 4/5 and are really looking forward to working with you all!

Let’s have a great year!

Miss Samuel, Mrs Johnson and Miss Chapman.
