To be the best we can be, living to learn, learning to live with God at our side.


Year 3

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 'Gods and Gladiators' where we will be learning about the life of the Romans. We will be visiting Caerleon to have a hands on experience of how life was like during the Roman times and visit an historic settlement. Throughout the topic we will get the chance to develop our Literacy, Math, History and also Geography skills.

Within Language the children will be studying a selection of poetry as well as the novel 'Ottoline and the Yellow Cat.'
