Aim High, Reach for the Sky

Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Moonstone!


Now that we are in year 5 we are really developing the responsibility we have for ourselves and others. We have lots of opportunity to work independently and let our personalities shine. We teach the curriculum through themes that link the different subject areas to make our learning meaningful, have a sense of purpose and exciting.

As we start each theme we will post on here an overview and throughout the weeks we will show some of the work that has taken place.


Parents are always welcome to drop in and have a chat with Mrs Moore or Mrs Armitage if they are concerned or have questions. We always welcome offers from parents or grandparents to support us whether for a day or on a regular basis.


Information you may find useful

  • PE takes place on Monday’s and Thursday’s but the children need to have their PE kits in school all week.
  • Spelling Homework is sent out on a Thursday and is returned on a Tuesday two weeks later.
  • ‘Three In a Row Homework’ is issued once every half term and these will cover a variety of subjects and ways or recording.
  • All children have a log in for ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ and we encourage the children to use this site to develop their number recall.
  • All children will have a card for the library and will regularly have the opportunity to visit and choose books. Even though your child may by now be a fluent reader it is very important that they are reading regularly at home and discussing what they have read.


This half term, our theme is ‘Gods and Monsters’. We will be learning about Greek myths and how to use language features to write myths of our own. After exploring some of the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses as inspiration, we will be creating some Greek masks of our own too.


Ancient Greek Inspiration Event

Today we have been to Ancient Greece! We have had fun dressing like Ancient Greeks, sampling Greek food, locating Greece on maps and dancing to Greek music.

Well done to our Children in Need Choir 2019; you made us all so proud!
