Have a wonderful Summer Y5.5 class of 2011

Dear All,
I know it has taken me a week to put this good bye message on the Blog but in my defence, I have packed up my whole house and flown to the other side of the world since school ended on 6th July.
I was so touched by your generosity on the last day and I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate your wonderful words and my very special gifts. I will treasure those memories.
You have been a great class. yes, you DID drive me NUTS at times, but we also had a very special year and I have seen you all grow as people. I hope you will remember Year 5 with fondness.
I will continue my Blog with my new class but of course, it will be somewhat different!
At least you can keep track of what I am doing and see my new victims (pupils).

Lots of love to you all and may you all have a fabulous summer.
Think of me as I start work on 20th July! and Hannah and James start school on 1st August!!!

Bye for now,
Mrs. Ward

Today in Y5.5

Hi Folks,
Nice to see Nisha back with us today after her short trip :-)
Today it is Arabic homework day, so just do the Daily Maths part 2 please.
If you are leaving early (the ones who have already given me a letter or email about this) can you make sure your return any outstanding library and text books to me before you leave please?
Thanks and have a wonderful evening.
Mrs. Ward.
PS for those who had very good reasons for not completing yesterday's homework, please do it tonight.

Today's Homework

Hi Folks,
Today was such an emotional day with my surprise first thing this morning. I couldn't believe the presentation. I was blown away by your lovely comments. XXX
Today was also Hannah's last day which was very sad :-( But I KNOW we will keep in touch.

Yes, there is homework as we still have a few things left to do to round off the year.

Daily Maths 1
Spelling Activity
PCM was it 98??? It's the one about using known facts... Sorry I am at home now and can't quite remember the page!

Anyhow. Good luck. I am not going to give you new reading books as we have to have them all re-shelved this week, but I will let you borrow from the class library.

Final Day: Competition Day!

HI Folks, Well, you know what they say: All good things must come to an end. Today marked our last day on the beach and it was another brilliant day. You had to work as teams this morning for a series of tricky challenges. Everyone was trying their best for the team which was great to see. Enjoy the pictures...
Tomorrow: Back to reality. POETRY RECITAL day. If you didn't do yours last Wednesday you will have to do it tomorrow as we have to choose the class winner tomorrow.
See you then.

Day Three: Reef expedition and MAN hunt.

Hi Folks,
Another amazing time was had by all today. You kayaked out to the fore reef and did some amazing snorkelling this morning, then came back to the beach for a well earned lunch. After lunch you had to hunt the teachers. I thought I was so smart swimming out to the other side of the island but you spotted me from the beach and Ryan and Faisal jumped in a kayak to catch me. Enjoy the pictures. Tomorrow we will have a great Competition Day and the Barbeque, so make sure you know what you are bringing along...
