Lydgate Infant School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

This year there are lots of changes to the Year 5 team.  We are very excited to have an existing and experienced member of staff in a new role as well as a new TA joining the school. Amethyst class will again be taught by Shukurat and Quartz will be taught by Sienna. Amethyst will be supported by Shane and Quartz by Stacey, who many of you know from previous years. 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. 

Class assemblies:

Amethyst: 3rd October

Quartz: 17th October
