Lydgate Infant School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

This year, we are very excited to welcome a new and experienced member of staff to the Year 5 team. Amethyst class will be taught by Shukurat and Quartz will be taught by Matt once again. Both classes will be supported by Basil. We will also have a number of other staff members who will be supporting and extending the learning.

In the first term our topic is Victorians, which will include a trip to The Ragged School – I guarantee every child will be glad that they are a school child in modern times after this visit! We will also be participating in a borough – led Junior Citizenship Scheme, where we learn how to keep ourselves safe.

We look forward to sharing our photographs, commentaries and latest news in our year group blog - watch this space for our assembly date too!
