Aim High, Reach for the Sky

Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to the new Class Larimar!


We are really enjoying our new  class as Year 5 pupils and we are aiming to set a great example to all of the children in the year groups below as well as working extremely hard in the year to come in all of our subjects.

As Y5 pupils we will be been given lots of extra responsibilities to help with our independence in readiness for another really important year at Mountfields Lodge Primary. Alongside this, we will be preparing ourselves for a challenging year ahead, in which we will experience many new skills to help with our learning. It’s going to be a very busy and fun time for us all and we will  post some of our experiences throughout each half term.


So keep visiting our class page!


Our new class teacher is Mr Evans and you are always welcome to pop in and have a chat with him, especially if there is anything you are concerned about or just have a few questions.

‘The main aim in Larimar is to make Y5 a really rewarding, hardworking and engaging year for the children and prepare them, as well as we possibly can, for their transition into Y6, as they continue on their learning journey.’
