Welcome to 5D!
Your Teacher is Miss Dytch
Your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Robinson and Mrs Hannaway
Come and have a look at our class page to celebrate the hard work, fantastic creativity and achievements in our class!
You will also find important notices and links to useful websites and videos to further support your child’s learning at home.
Reading books will be changed every other day after children have read their book and completed their reading quiz. Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week and sign their reading record book each time they have read. Each read earns two house points, so there is a maximum of 14 house points on offer each week! Also, if children receive a high score on their reading quiz they will go up our reading rocket to win prizes and move onto a higher reading band.
Homework is handed out every Friday to be completed by the following Thursay. Children have a homework bookmark in their books and each time homework is completed they receive a stamp on their bookmark. When the bookmark is full, children can collect a prize!
Spellings and Times Table Test
Times Tables Test will be every Tuesday and Spelling Tests are on a Friday. Children need to bring in their spelling book on a Friday and have the opportunity to practice them each morning in class.
PE will be every Monday this half-term and children will be taking part in Gymnastics. Please ensure children have the correct PE Kit (white top, black shorts and black PE pumps). PE kits should stay in school and will be sent home at the end of each half-term to be washed.
Here are the links to some of the exciting websites that children use in school to support their reading, comprehension skills and numeracy. Children will have their own passwords and I will be able to monitor their understanding to support them further.
This term in Summer 1 we are learning about...
Ancient Greece and Space!
We have created our own solar systems using paper mache and paint.
Each group made one planet and we have displayed them in the correct order from the sun in our classroom.
Museum of Science and Industry Trip!
Today we went to the Museum of Science and Industry to continue our learning of forces this term.
We went to an experience room, powerhouse, air and space hall and took part in a forces and flight show.
We had a fantastic trip and all children should be proud of their exceptional behaviour!

"I enjoyed looking at the RAF planes and the trains" Cameron
"I'm glad the tornado machine was working, it was mixed up of gusts of wind and water. I really enjoyed it!" Daniel
"I really enjoyed the part when me and Mursel were really shocked about the water tornado and I liked the different trains and how old they were" Nazma
"It was fun and brilliant. I liked everything" Rio
"It was really fun and my favourite part was the experiment room because there was lots of things to test out" Jessica
Happy Mother's Day!
Today we created homemade cards and wrote messages to special people in our lives.
Uzair led an e-cadet lesson today discussing our digital footprint and how we should stay safe on the internet.
We are aiming to read more at home and are using the accelerated reading programme to show our achievements.
If a child receives more than 85% on their reading test from their reading book they can move up the rocket in our classroom towards a prize!
Well done to Qadra, Aliza and Nazma who are currently at the top of the rocket!
