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
Welcome to Year 3/4
MISS SAMUEL'S CLASS
Our RE topic is called ‘Homes’. In this topic we will explore how God i present in every home. This is expressed in the love that binds the family together within the home through good times and bad times.
Scripture: John 13: 34 ‘And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.’
In numeracy, we will be working on number and place value, addition and subtraction, fractions, shape and handling data. Remember to keep checking your “My Maths” page for all tasks set.
In our language we will be studying the book, 'The Little Match Girl' by Carrie Weston set in the Victorian Era.
The book is about a young girl struggling to sell her matches. As she lights them one by one to keep warm, her imagination turns the cold, dark streets into a world far more welcoming. Children studying this book the children will have the opportunity to write a diary and a character sketch.
