Ysgol Gynradd St John Lloyd RC Primary School

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


Year 3/4

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 maximize 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.

This term our topic is 'Global Gourmet'.


We will be visiting 'Pizza Express' this half term to make our own pizzas! laugh


We will be researching foods from around the world.

Also, we will be looking at what foods are healthy for our development as well as what are the best foods/liquids for our teeth.

In addition, in our Language lessons, we will focus on one of Roald Dahl's classics:

'Charlie & The Chocolate Factory'.

We will be designing and creating our own treats, writing biographies and creating fact files. Some of our lovely work will be uploaded to the school Twitter - so stay tuned!



We are looking forward to an interesting and exciting half term.


Miss Samuel.




  • 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. 

    It is very important to complete your homework - Bug Club, My Maths and spelling homework will be set weekly. Alongside this comprehension and research projects will be set too! 

    We wish you all every success for this year and are really looking forward to working with you all!

    Let’s have a great year!

    Miss Samuel
