Year 3 Blog
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.
Welcome to Year 3!
The Y3 teachers are Mrs Dutton & Mrs de Brouwer (3D/dB), Miss Hayden (3RH), Mrs Holden (3SH) and Miss Wall (3AW). We have several Teaching Assistants who work with Y3 children at different times through the week: Miss Mahon, Mr Bartholomew, Mrs Dawes and Miss Kania.
We will use this blog to keep you up-to-date with all the exciting things that we do in Year 3, share some of the things that the children learn and show you some of their fantastic work. We hope you enjoy reading it!
The Y3 team.
Welcome to the Year 5 Blog page.
The Year 5 teaching team consists of: Mrs Loosley (5NL), Miss Cunningham (5EC), Mrs Ridsdale and Mrs Webb (5W/R) and Mr Bradshaw (5BB). The children are also supported by our teaching assistants: Mr Swain, Mr Jenkinson, Mrs Hornsey and Mrs Allen. We have help from Mr Jones, Miss Lee, Ms Grimsley and Ms Reasbeck too. What a fantastic team!
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!

Your homework task this week is to compare the land use in two different pictures. ..
For homework this week, we would like you to have a look at a map of Europe. We have sent home a blank map and your task is to fill in the names of the countries. ..
After the holiday, we will be starting a Geography topic all about the country of Greece. For homework, we would like the children to find out some facts about the country. This can be presented in any way they like (although please send it in on paper and not electronically as we will be sharing it at their desks). ..
Today in Year 3, we took a trip to Greece without even leaving the school building! We had a visitor from Google Expeditions who brought in phones that were fitted into cardboard sleeves to make them into Virtual Reality viewers. When we looked into them, we could turn our heads all around, up and down to see what was around us. We looked at different places in Greece and considered what is the same/ different to places in the UK. Our teachers guided us to look at certain places using an iPad and we found out lots of interesting facts. It was like going on a school trip! ..
We had a great time on our trips to Pooles Cavern in Buxton this week, despite the bad weather! Y3JD and Y3R/D got very wet on Monday but still did our best to work on soggy paper! Unfortunately, we couldn't walk right up to Solomon's Temple as the ground was too slippery but we really enjoyed going into the cave. ..
