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
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 the secretary
I am sure you will all agree that it is so good being back at school! We are all getting used to working in a different way in our classrooms, but together we will make our classroom a safe and happy place for us to learn.
Disaster Zone’. We will be developing our geographical skills whilst looking at our coastal line and how it is effected by erosion. Also we will be putting our detective hats to investigate and report on the effects of flooding and how we can prevent this.
Our Virtues this term are asking us to become 'Loving' and 'Compassionate'. This means we must show love and compassion to others just as God shows each and everyone of us.
The Greatest Commandment
“Teacher,” he asked, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’
