Introduction

Welcome to Lydgate Junior School.

We aim to ensure that all children receive a high quality, enjoyable and exciting education.

We feel that our school is a true reflection of the community we serve. Lydgate children are well motivated and come from a range of social and cultural backgrounds. Within the school community we appreciate the richness of experience that the children bring to school. This enhances the learning experiences of everyone and it also gives all pupils the opportunity to develop respect and tolerance for each other by working and playing together. We want your child's time at Lydgate to be memorable for the right reasons - that is, a happy, fulfilling and successful period of his/her childhood.

Yours sincerely,
Stuart Jones

Welcome to the Y4 blog. 

The Y4 team consists of the following teachers: Mrs Purdom in Y4JP, Mrs Smith and Mrs Smith (yes, that's right) in Y4SS, Mrs Wymer in Y4CW and Mrs Drury in Y4JD.

We know that the question children are mostly asked when they arrive home is 'What did you do today?' The response is often 'nothing'! Well, here is where you can find out what 'nothing' looks like. In our weekly blogs your children will share with you what they have been getting up to and show some of the wonderful work they have been doing. Check in each weekend for our latest news.

Our PE days are Tuesday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor): the children need to wear their PE kits for school on those days. 

Spellings are sent home every Monday, to learn ready for a spelling dictation each Friday. 

Homework books (maths and SPaG) will be sent home once a week - the days will be decided by the class teachers who will let their classes know. They will have a whole week to complete the homework tasks. 

In our weekly blogs, the children will share some of the things they have been doing at school. Check in each weekend for the latest Y5 news!

Shibboleth – the password or magic word

It is much to our embarrassment, but undoubtedly true, that some children’s needs are not met as fully or as rapidly as some others. We respond to the high profile, the loud, the distracting and disturbing, the risk of wider impact much quicker, for longer and with greater resource than the quietly stated, even where the quiet need is persistent and undeniable. ..

Who you gonna call?

One way in which we protect / safeguard children is making sure they feel they can talk to us about their concerns, hopes and fears. We build, or seek to build, relationships that are open, respectful, cheerful, positive, encouraging and personal. We try to give the time that children want from us, so they know they have been listened to fully. As our children are so receptive and open we also try to make the time to explain the adults’ view of things, our hopes and wishes. ..
