• Welcome to our blog



    Our shared values in Y5: To care for myself and others by making sure we are all safe and happy. To be honest in all we do/say. We always work hard and try our best. We listen carefully and thoroughly. We make sure we are always giving our best, so everyone else can be the best that they can be. We look after our property.
    We like to be 'leaders' and not 'followers' We always choose the 'good' light inside of us. We make the right choices at the right time.




    Anyone can train hard for a short period. Winners give their best every hour of every day for months on end.



    In 5V we like to stop and think - before we do or speak.

    'Give children a thought and they’ll learn for a day. Teach them to think and they’ll learn for a lifetime.’David Hyerle
    If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.- William Arthur Ward
    You cannot write it, if you cannot say it; you cannot say it, if you haven't heard it. - Pie Corbett

    We love to share our way of thinking, it does help us in our learning!

Paul Nash

Paul Nash is our Artist we are currently studying. He was a war artist. He was also in WW1 trenches himself!

1889–1946 Nationality: British Paul Nash was one of the most original British artists of the first half of the 20th Century. Working in the tradition of William Blake and Samuel Palmer, his paintings express a deep, mystical attachment to the English countryside.

He was an official war artist during Word War I, painting the scarred landscape of the Western Front where he had served as a soldier before being wounded. In the late 1920’s he became interested in Surrealism and was particularly influenced by the paintings of de Chirico.

During World War II he was again appointed official war artist, this time painting the devastating effects of war on rural England.
