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.

    Welcome to Year 4!

    All of the Year 4 team would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new Year 4 children and their families. We have really enjoyed our first week where we have been able to get to know the children. They have made a great start to the year and we are impressed with how quickly they have settled in. We are particularly proud of the example that they are setting to the new Year 3 children!

    All classes are open for parents to visit on Friday 14th September from 2:30pm. You will be able to see your child's classroom, meet the teacher and the rest of the new class. If you are unable to visit at this time, then please do make an appointment with your child's class teacher (if you wish to do so).

    We have lots of exciting things planned for the year. We really want the children to enjoy their learning and are keen to ensure that this is the case for all of our Year 4s. We look to forward to the year ahead!

    Autumn 1 Spelling List

    Please find below the spelling lists for the next six weeks. List 1 is for the week commencing 10th September. Spellings are given out on a Monday and tested on Friday during a dictation session. All children have been given a copy of these lists to take home (we suggested that they stick them into the back of their homework books so that they can easily find it!). Please ask your class teacher if you need another copy.

    We would like all children to learn the keywords, which are from the list of words to learn by the end of Year 4. All children (who do not attend a separate spelling group) should also learn the rule words. These words follow the rule or pattern that we are learning that week. Finally, there are five challenge words for those children who would like to earn some extra team points!

    Habitats Printing

    Over the last few weeks in Y4S/D, we have been working on printing in art. We used the habitats within our school as inspiration. Firstly, we sketched some creatures and then we used our favourite sketch to create a polyblock of our creature. Following this, we then used natural materials to print with to create the habitat that our creature lives in, on fabric. Finally, we printed our polyblock creature into our habitat. We're sure that you'll agree that the results were great!
