This week in class 5P it has been very exciting as we did 'Victorian Day' yesterday and Miss Palmer came to school dressed as a Victorian teacher.
To start off the day, we had a spot of leisure, before we had to do Victorian handwriting which we had to get perfect or we would get the cane. Gilbert (Callum Irwin), got the cane... Sadly it was all a joke. Before lunch Miss Palmer went out of character she told us some more punishments. After that she told us that she really did whip Gilbert but as soon as that happened she winked at him and we all knew it was a joke,(we all started laughing).
We had a great day and learnt lots of interesting things and even some new skills like embroidery.

What a varied life we teachers lead! Mrs Cooper and I have been discussing the more unusual, tricky to organise, a bit stressful, but fun aspects of our jobs.
Things, when I was training, I never dreamt I would say to a class of children,
'Have you got enough exfoliant cream and cuticle cream?' This when preparing for our hand massage pamper session.
But we raised over £200.
Things we do.
Spend Sunday cooking fresh soup for children to taste, then watch them pull faces as they taste and smell - all in the name of market research. It was worth it to give the children a variety of soups to test - and some did like it, thank goodness. Although perhaps not a career move for me.
Heating 4 different types of soup for children to test with 1 microwave.
Loading most of my pans, bowls, spoons, into my car to enable the children to have their tasting session.
YES! DT week has arrived:
we have completed market research
we have taste tested and evaluated soups
we have discussed where food comes from and seasonal food
we have searched recipes
we have agreed on a recipe for our soup
we have scaled our soup for portions needed
we have priced our soups
we have completed our shopping lists
we will shop for our ingredients
we will make our soup
then we will take our soup home for our families to enjoy.
So yes, tricky to plan and organise, a bit stressful, but fun, different and rewarding.
BRING ON THE SOUP.
WHAT'S HAPPENED IN 5P?
This week has been a busy week for our class. We have had a new teacher called Miss Taylor and she was a kind. On Fridays, we have Mrs Oldhams as our teacher and she is kind as well. It has been a fun filled week of fractions in Maths and we have acted out scenes from 'The Highway Man' in English.We also have found out some interesting facts about the Tudors.
To finish our week we had a fantastic golden time.

This week has been so much fun!
We have been learning about Aboriginal art and poetry in English.
The highlight of the week was the harvest festival in St Andrew's Church.
In art we have learnt how to make our own page of Aboriginal art
and it was fantastic fun, even though some of us didn't finish!
Some of us did our own estates, gardens and streets.
5P do something called class dojo where we get points for doing good things and at the end of the week the highest scorer gets a prize!
We wonder what will happen next week!
