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!

Welcome back Year 6s!
We are all feeling very positive to be back at Lydgate Junior School, especially starting our exciting year as Year 6s!
In our first ICT lesson we completed a well-being questionnaire and we have since learnt how to create fantastic, positive posters with inspirational quotes.
"Some days are better,
Some are worse.
Look for the blessing,
Instead of the curse.
Be positive - never be negative!"
"Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift ,
That is why we call it the present."
Tabie says "When you fall in a hole, I'll be your ladder!"
Remina's poster reminds us that "It's great to be different!"
There were 30+ amazing quotes but we will finish with...
"I have not failed I have just found 10,000 ways that don't work."
In Y6HN we created wordles in our ICT lesson, we are really pleased with them.
In Y6CP we have learnt about Anne Frank and how she went into hiding during WW2. We were amazed by what she went through and how positive she remained. We have also started our whole school art project and have all had a go at drawing a detailed sketch of a wolf. We think they will look amazing when they are finished.
In Y6RJ, in P.E we have been doing volleyball. It's been very fun and we have enjoyed it loads! We played with the big pink balls that we have in our classroom. We have played in teams, groups and pairs with people that we wouldn't normally be with, which has been very fun. But it has also been quite strange as we have to wear our P.E kits all day (can be a little smelly), but overall it has been really fun!
