Year 4 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. We know that the question that children are mostly asked as they leave school is 'What did you do today?' The response is often 'nothing'! Well, here is where you can find what 'nothing' looks like. In our weekly blogs we will share with you what your children have been getting up to and all of the wonderful work that they have been doing. The Y4 team consists of the following teachers: Mrs Shaw and Mrs Drury in Y4S/D, Mrs Smith and Mrs Smith (this is not a typo!) in Y4S/S, Miss Norris in Y4HN and Miss Wall in Y4AW. The children are supported by our teaching assistants too, including Mrs Biggs, Mr Jenkinson and Mrs Tandy. We also have help from Miss Lee, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Flynn and Mrs Wolff. Some of the children are lucky enough to spend time in The Hub too with Mrs Tandy. What a team!

Welcome to the Year 5 Blog page.

The Year 5 teaching team includes our class teachers, Mrs Parker (5AP), Mrs Rougvie and Mrs Jones (5RJ), Miss Reasbeck and Mrs Ridsdale (5RR) and Mrs Holden (5SH). . Many children are supported by Mrs Hill and Mrs Allen (the Year 5Teaching Assistants) who work with children across the 4 classes. Our Year 5 teaching team aims to create a stimulating learning environment that is safe, happy, exciting and challenging, where each pupil is encouraged to achieve their full potential.

As a parent or carer, you play a massively important role in your child's development and we'd love to work closely with you. Please feel free to make an appointment to see us if you want to discuss your child's attitude to learning, their progress, attainment or anything else that might be on your mind. We'd also love to hear from you if you have any skills that we could use to make our Year 5 curriculum even more exciting. Are you an avid reader, a talented sportsman, a budding artist, a mad scientist or a natural mathematician? Would you be willing to listen to children read on a regular basis? If so, please contact your child’s class teacher. Similarly, if you have a good idea, a resource, a 'contact' or any other way of supporting our learning in year 5, please let us know.

We are working very hard to ensure your child has a successful year 5, please help us with this by ensuring your child completes and returns any homework they are given each week. If there are any issues regarding homework or your child finds a particular piece of homework challenging, then please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. In order to help improve your child’s reading skills, increase their vocabulary and develop their comprehension skills, we also ask that you listen to your child read and ask them questions to ensure they have understood what they have read.

We look forward to keeping you up to date on the exciting things that we do in year 5 through our year group blog.

    What a sporty week!

    What a sporty week! It started with the Big Red Sofa challenge...

    Followed by an exciting cooperation games lesson with Mr Wright...

    And we ended up with Miranda's press up challenge where she competed against staff members to see who could do the most press-ups in 30 seconds. Mr Jones in Y3 got the most with 49, but Miranda was close behind with an incredible 39! Well done, Miranda!

    Finally, a BIG well done to our 'Stars of the Week'. Especially Mrs Barratt, who will be leaving us next week. She has been a real asset to Y4 and she will be greatly missed by all. We wish her lots of luck for the future!

    We've had a fantastic week in Year 4 this week. 

    Jake (Y4HN) said his highlight was making electrical circuits in Science and Olivia (Y4HN) said she most enjoyed writing her Bad Idea Story in Literacy. 

    We've been swimming, played badminton and learned all about dividing by 10 and 100. 

    We are looking forward to next week, especially Tuesday when we will watch the Look North team push the big red sofa up Manchester Road. 

    Here are our stars of the week, well done again from the whole Y4 team. Keep up the good work!

    Y4S/S Bach Project

    In Y4SS, this term, the children have been working really hard to learn a special piece of music called Bach to Blues from memory.  It is based on J.S Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor and is very complicated but the children are proving to be amazing musicians who listen to each other and work as a team.  We will be performing this in our Parents' Assembly next half term.  We are very proud of our class!
