Year 5 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/deB), Mrs Holden (3SH), Mrs Noble & Mrs Finney (3N/R) and Miss Wall (3AW). We have several Teaching Assistants who work with Y3 children at different times through the week: Mr Jenkinson, Mrs Proctor, Mrs Hill, Mrs Allen, Mrs Dawes and Mr Gartrell.
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 includes our class teachers, Mrs Loosley (5NL), Mrs Rougvie and Mrs Jones (5RJ), Mrs Webb and Mrs Ridsdale (5WR) and Miss Cunningham (5EC). Many children are supported by Mrs Hill, Mr Swain and Ms Kania (the Year 5 Teaching 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.

More great learning and some yummy baking
It has been another busy week, with lots of learning going on, at home and at school.
In our English work this week, we have all been looking at some poetry by Jo Coelho and writing poems about our own special places. These children have chosen different places - their garden, their grandma's home in Lancashire and their own homes - to inspire their own poetry.
Amelia was inspired to write her poem about a place which is special to her - Chatsworth. She also worked hard on the other English tasks for the week and had some interesting ideas for school uniform designs, as well as completing her maths work.
Ellie also had some great school uniform designs to share, as well as her beautifully presented rivers poster and her maths work.
Lucy shared this picture of her 'water carrying' art work. Her use of colour in the sunset is really effective.
Remina has was inspired, by the 'wishing' English unit, to write this story about a greedy boy who wished for ninety bars of chocolate! She also created a great chicken poster and learned about the features of a good website.
Khalid made up his own story, using ideas from some games he had been playing.
Divyam took inspiration from this spooky picture to write a suspense story with some very effective and creepy descriptions.
And now for the yummy baking!
Ranveer made these delicious-looking marbled chocolate cookies.
This boy and his brother had a baking marathon. I hope their family will enjoy eating all these delicious bakes!
Well done again everyone! It is lovely to see all the hard work and fun that is going on.
Next week is the Lydgate Virtual School Games. Your parents will have had an email about this and you can send in your results next week. We are looking forward to sharing lots of sporty photos on next week's blog.
