Aim High, Reach for the Sky

Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Turquoise!


Now that we are in Year 5, we are really developing responsibility for ourselves and others. We have lots of opportunities to work independently and let our personalities shine.


Our curriculum is linked across subjects to make it meaningful, purposeful and exciting. We will upload each theme overview so that you can see what teaching and learning will be taking place.


Please feel free to drop in and see Mrs Tomlin if you have any concerns or just a question or two. We will always welcome offers from parents to support in the classroom, whether for the occasional day or on a more regular basis.

A few reminders

  • P.E is on TMondays and Tuesdays. A full indoor and outdoor P.E kit is expected to be in school for them to wear so that they can fully participate.
  • Spelling homework is given out every second Thursday and due in on the Tuesday two weeks later.
  • Three in a Row Homework is given out once every half term and a letter will be sent home with more details. The current Three is a Row is a Reading based project and is due to be handed in on Tuesday 12th February.
  • All children have a Times Table Rock Stars log-in and we encourage them to practise these at home.
  • All children have a library pin and can exchange their books at school when needed. We do encourage the children to use the library regularly and independently. Even though your child may be a fluent reader, it is still very important that they are reading regularly at home and discussing what they have read.

Spring Theme

Our theme for spring is 'All at Sea,' and is based around the wonderful story of Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We will be using aspects of the story and computer technology to explore and learn about different places around the world. We will also be learning new skills in survival and  how to make a survival blanket.
