Information on our class structure and curriculum at SJL

In line with our prospectus, classes 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


WELCOME TO Year 3 Summer 1!


This half term our topic is called 'Cooks, critics and connoisseurs'. The main focus of this topic is Science and we will be investigating how our food is broken down, in particular the role of our teeth in this process.

Our new class novel is 'Ottoline'. We will be developing our prediction skills to use the language of possibility as to what might happen, identify the key features of a mystery story and then try to write our own!

Our R.E. topic is 'To the ends of the earth', we will be talking about how the Disciples felt after Ascension and before Pentecost and the importance of the Holy Spirit.  Together with our virtues of eloquent and truthful, we will be thinking carefully about how we express ourselves to our friends and other people we might meet.

Our PE lessons will still be on Thursdays. Everyone needs to remember their P.E. kit on this day as it is an important part of the curriculum.

To keep up to date with what we are doing in Maths, please have a look at the Maths newsletters posted on the class page belonging to your Maths teacher. Also, don’t forget to complete your My Maths homework online. This is set each Wednesday and you have a week to complete it.

Don’t forget to read and complete the activities for one book each week on Bug Club. Reading is so important in helping us learn and develop other skills. A new list of spelling will be posted on our class page each Friday. Please remember to practice these words each day at home ready for your spelling test the following Friday.
