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. 


Welcome back to the final chapter at St. John Lloyd Primary!  
   We've a fun filled, exciting time ahead of us as we continue to develop all our talents and skills before we begin the next stage of our education.

Our second topic of the year is called "BEAST CREATOR" and we will be learning all about Mini-beasts, including their habitats, life cycles and food chains.

This project has a science focus which teaches the children about life cycles and habitats, body parts and functions of different mini beasts in the locality and beyond. In this project the children will learn about the characteristics, life cycles and habitats of a range of insects and mini beasts;  including Interdependence and adaptation.
How to collect and present scientific and mathematical data using ICT and
How to use and apply scientific knowledge to design a unique mini beast based on what you have learnt about the mini beast body parts;
How to use design technology skills effectively to make a model;
At the heart of this project the children will learn how to write narrative fantasy stories on the theme of mini beasts and develop additional skills in note making, scientific and technical language and recording and explanation skills.

Homework Task
Can you design and create a model of your very own "Beast"? This could be a mini-beast or your own fantastical animal, (E.g. Think of Narnia). You can decide upon the materials you would like to use and the size and dimensions of your creation. I  can't wait to see your wonderful work!
During this term we will be focusing on one of our favourite authors C.S. Lewis and using his techniques in our own creative writing through our "Big Writes".
Our novel will be "The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe."

Our maths skills will be posted onto our webpage so that you can share with your "grown ups" what we are focusing on.

Our ICT and Welsh skills will be a priority this year in order to prepare everybody for year 7 and we will be using the expertise of Mr. Hennessy and Mrs. Davies to help us do this.

We've a fun filled time ahead to look forward to. Auditions will be taking place very soon for our version of "A school Christmas Carol" we'e crafts to make for the annual fayre and of course our much anticipated trip to the new theatre. As well as this we will be developing our own deeper understanding of this very special and holy time during Advent our time of preparation for the coming of Jesus.

Every week there will be homework tasks set to challenge and reinforce the learning that happens in class.
Mon- Reading and Comprehension skills
Wed - Maths (My Maths and a task to complete)
Thurs - Big Talk
Fri - Spelling / Research task . 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

PE will take place every Tuesday.

I look forward to getting to know everybody as the weeks develop and hope that this year will be the best that it can be for all of our Year 6 pupils!!!
