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!

For home learning this week, we asked you to read the poem 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright (you can listen to it here: www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkpmhyc). We set the challenge for you to write your own poem with imaginative items that you would put into the box. We then asked you to send us just one line from your writing that you would like to include in a poem that we would put together as a year group. ..
Have you been reading the 'We've got a Wa Wa' poem we sent home? Here is a recording of some children reading it in school yesterday. You could join in and read along with them if you like... ..
Here are some pictures of the Wa Wa that children have designed at home based on the poem and poems they have written to go with them. We are very impressed at how creative and imaginative you are! ..
One Y3 child, Hope, loves to write poetry and has written several poems that her class have enjoyed listening to. This week, she wrote a poem that impressed us so much that we wanted to share it with you. ..
We have been reading and listening to lots of poems in Year 3. This week, we read a poem called 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright (see https://www.bbc.co.uk/education/clips/zkpmhyc). We thought about what items we would put in the magic box and used expanded noun phrases to make up our own descriptive poems. We also tried to include some alliteration because we think that makes the poem sound good. ..
