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.
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!

Friday 29th November
In Y6 we have spent some time discussing 'e-safety' and how to be respectful using mobile phones and on the internet. We looked at a very useful website: https://www.bbc.com/ownit and watched several clips giving us relevant and important advice about:
"5 things to know about getting your first phone"
"The Own It app helps you take control of your online life!"and we took part in a quiz:
"Quiz: Is what you're posting online mean?"
In Y6CP, we did dragon eyes for our whole school art. We made these by first drawing and painting them. After this, we used clay to really bring them to life! Our dragon eyes are on display around the school and in our classroom. We hope lots of people get the chance to see them!
We have made our dragon eyes look as vibrant and detailed as possible! I really enjoyed how much everyone supported each other along the way as we all made a few mistakes on our artistic journey. We have learnt a lot from this. For example: it doesn't always have to look exactly like the model we used; sometimes the little differences are what make our own work unique. Also, we learned not to rush our work and instead took it as a time to enjoy creating our art pieces.
We learnt a lot of new techniques. My favourite was how to use a sponge to give the dragon scaly skin. I was really impressed with my parnter's work; he had added veins to his.
Our teachers were so proud of all of our work! Mr Bradshaw even said we were the talk of the staff room because of our fantastic dragon eyes!
