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.
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 have so many exciting opportunities and activities planned this academic year, which will add to the wonderful memories the children have already made in 2019.
Our topic this term is 'Blood, Bones and Gory Bits'.
We will be exploring the importance of exercise and its effect on the body, we will also be looking at our heart rate, before and after exercise. We are all very excited about getting started on our new topic!
