Here you will find some information about the teaching staff who will be working with your child.

Miss Gidden 

This is my first year teaching as an NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher), I first started at Kings Rise Academy teaching year 4 and we soon changed to a mixed class as year 3 children joined us towards the end of the summer.  I am proud of each and every one of them as I am now carrying them through years 4 and 5 again as a mixed class.  I am really looking forward to working alongside Mrs Lyden to help this year group reach their full potential and develop into such great learners.  When not in school I enjoy spending quality time with close friends and family.


Mrs Lyden

 This is my first year at Kings Rise Academy.  I am really looking forward to working with Year 5 and Miss Gidden. When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my lovely grandchildren and friends. 




Every half term we will produce a topic overview to provide you with information about the topics that the pupils in Year 4/5 will be focusing on.

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due for return on the following Wednesday.  This will consist of a piece of Maths which may be online using our new Abacus planning scheme and Spellings.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and children will be tested the following Friday. Please help your child to learn their spellings.

 We would love for you to encourage the children to read between 10 and 15 minutes every day.  Ask the children questions about the story and what their opinions are, as this supports us during SFA and their understanding of many different books.



As part of our Healthy Schools focus, all children require a clearly labelled bottle of fresh drinking water every day.

Pupils are allowed to bring squash or flavoured water for consumption at lunchtimes only. 

High sugar content drinks, such as energy drinks and fizzy pop, are not allowed.

Thank you for your cooperation with our school policy.


Chinese Food Tasting Afternoon

In July, we were lucky enough to be the chosen class to try out some very tasty Chinese food cooked by our wonderful school Chef, Mo. Here are some photos of us enjoying tucking in!
