Mountfields Lodge School

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 Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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. This year's first homework project, which is related to our World War 2 theme, has been handed out to the children. You can find a copy of this further down our class page. I hope that the children enjoy completing their tasks. If you have any questions about the homework, then please feel free to come and dicuss these with me. 
  • All children have a Times Table Rock Stars log-in and we encourage them to practise these at home.
  • All children have a library card 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.

Harvest Festival

Thank you all for coming to our Harvest Festival, it was wonderful to see such an amazing turn out of support! I am sure that you will agree the children performed very well and enjoyed showing you a little about what they have been learning  about harvest time past and present.

Thank you also for the donations for our 'Bring in a Tin' appeal. We will be collecting these over the next two weeks so keep them coming - your contribution will be very much appreciated by PACE and our local neighbourhood.

Parent - Teacher Consultation Evenings

You child will have been given an appointment time for next week's parent teacher consultation meetings. Please check your time before coming for your appointment. I look forward to meeting you to discuss how your child has settled in to Year 5.

Please be mindful that each appointment time is 10 minutes and it is very important that these are kept to so that no one is left waiting. If you feel that you will need longer, then please contact me to make another mutual time.
