A fantastic week in 5D
I don’t know about the children, but I am very tired today after a fun and exciting week in the 5D classroom.
We started the week learning about Roman Numerals. I was shocked by how much the children loved this lesson! As you can see in our pictures from the week, two children would not leave the classroom at break time until they worked out their Roman Numeral challenge.
On Thursday, we were treated with some Mexican food from a homework task and we thoroughly enjoyed eating and having a little Mexican dance.
Friday was BIG WRITE and the children sat writing away for a full hour while some soft music played- they even moaned when I tried to make them put their pens down for assembly. Such a hardworking lot!
Have a fab weekend in the sun!

Today was our WOW starter for our Mayan topic and we had so much 'choclatey' fun!!!
Mayan hot chocolate!
Only the rich and noble members of Maya society drank hot chocolate – it was a very special drink! We made our own version of Mayan hot chocolate using cocoa powder and hot milk. We whisked it up to make it frothy and to make it authentic we added chilli powder and cinnamon for extra flavour!
A MASSIVE WELCOME TO 5D!!!
5D have settled in so well and I am really excited to have a fantastic year togther. Take a look at the picture to see all the happy faces on their first day in Year 5!
What do you need to know?
Homework grids will be sent out this Friday (6th September) please encourage your child to do the homework as soon as they can so that we have enough time to showcase and show them off in the classroom before the end of a half term/ start of a new topic.
Home reading journals should be in daily, but will be checked on a Tuesday (Mr Barton) and Friday (Miss Drennan) to ensure children are reading at home. It would be amazing if parents could also comment.
Spelling tests will be on a Thursday. To get children used to unknown words sometimes we won’t send a spelling list out and we will instead test using the Yr 5 and 6 common exception words (or something we think they need that week). However, other weeks we will send out a spelling list- chat to me if you're ensure each week.
PE is on a Friday.
Can you please make sure all children have a water bottle in school as we have longer mornings than Year 4 and it’s important they keep hydrated for all the hard work we have to do J
