Year 3 Blog

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!

RRS Class Charters

This term, the children in Year 3 have been learning about what it means to be a Rights Respecting School, with a particular focus on the right to an education (Articles 28 & 29), the right to play (Article 31), the right to be safe (Articles 19 & 24) and the right to be respected (Articles 12, 14 & 30) . We have talked about how everyone can show respect for the rights of the child and each class has designed their own Class Charter to display their promises to each other.

Tree art

To finish off our art topic on trees, we made 3D trees this week out of brown paper bags. We used our observations of the shapes and textures of winter trees to cut and twist the paper into shape. We then used tissue paper to cover the ground and added some glitter to make them sparkle. We are proud of the finished pieces and think that they look great when placed all together like a forest. ..
