Five for Sunday

Where has my weekend gone?! I know I rarely actually manage to post Five for Friday on Fridays but seriously a Sunday may be a new record for lateness! It's practically the next week lol

I've been watching a couple of British education 'reality' documentaries recently and they are presenting quite different views of the education systems in Britain! 

As part of our Harvest topic, we had a bread tasting session this week. Yum! (Unsurprisingly the chocolate bun was voted the favourite!)

In my craft club, we made pumpkin pictures based on an idea from I {Heart} Crafty Things.

Some tricky word practice on my whiteboard. 

This week has been report writing week, so no photo, but a huge chunk of my time this week!!

A Five for Friday Currently!

Here is my Five for Friday... on a Saturday as per usual!

My SLANT box for September made it to the post office this week! Sorry Stacey its going to be a bit late!!

Look at these cutie capital letter cards I found for free at A Special Kind of Class. Straight into my Challenge Area for my kidlets.

Another fantastic find from Mel at Frog Spot are these one more and one less game boards.

I made this a little while ago (and I took photos so I must write it up as a 'How to' post) and my class are loving using it to count our number of days in school.

And here is this month's Currently from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade.

Listening - Horrible Histories are just so fun to watch (yes I know I'm 20 years older than the target audience)

Loving - The slight (slight!) drop in temperature from the rain today

Thinking - That I failed in my Sunday Scoop aim to blog mid-week :(

Wanting - Not to have so much work to do... it seems never-ending right now!

Needing - to book my half-term holidays, we are considering Sydney... am unbelievably excited!!

Treat - Here is a little Friday Saturday Freebie with a Halloween theme!
