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!

We have been enjoying reading The BFG in Year 3. After reading about the dreams that the BFG collected, the children used their imaginations to create their own dreams. These were presented onto jar shapes and are displayed in the classrooms. Here are some pictures of the displays (as you are unable to visit school at this time)... ..
As promised, here are some pictures of the wonderful self portraits the children have been creating using oil pastels. Can you recognise anyone? ..
In our literacy lessons, we have been looking at non-fiction books. For homework this week, we would like you to choose a non-fiction book about a topic that interests you and bring it into school to share your favourite page and two interesting facts that you have found out. We would also like you to think about the features of a non-fiction text and how they help you when you are reading it. ..
This week, we have been reading 'Stanley and the Magic Lamp' by Jeff Brown. In the story, there is a character called Tom McRude who is the best tennis player in the world and loves showing everyone how good he is. However, he is very rude to everyone. ..
We have been busy organising and decorating our class libraries. All of the children have now chosen their first reading books. They can choose two books each - one from the book band colour that the teacher has directed them to and one that is free choice from any colour/section of the library. We talk to the children about how to choose books that are appropriate for them and we provide a wide variety of books, magazines and newspapers for them to find something that they enjoy. We want to encourage a love of reading. ..
