Year 6 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.

Yours sincerely,
Stuart Jones

Christmas gear

As it is our last week at school until the Christmas holidays, each day we had a fun new accessory to wear. On Monday it was sparkle in Christmas jewellery so children wore all kinds of things: necklaces, earrings, badges and more. Then it was Tuesday, the theme was dazzle in festive head-gear. People wore Santa hats, reindeer antlers and even some dancing turkeys. Wednesday came next, everyone was ringing as the topic was wear something that jingles. Knock 'em dead wear green and red, this was on Thursday; everyone looked jolly and happy. Finally it was Friday, everybody had all their Christmas gear on from the whole week; on top of that they got to wear their own jumpers and t-shirts.

What we were learning

This week in maths we were learning about reflection, transition and the 4 quadrants. We have been editing and then writing up our Lady Macbeth Diary in our Best Work Book. For English we learnt subjunctive mood and in mandarin we made Christmas paper cuttings. Also, we had some games of  football in PE.
