• 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!

Walter Tull – by Gursimran

Y5’s are currently working on our Black History display that needs to go up by Friday 21st September. All year groups have a topic to be covered and Y5’s topic is ‘Freedom’. We’ve chosen Walter Tull as he was born during the Victorian era, our Topic for the term,  he fought for Freedom during WW1, was a great footballer- he played for Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Town and overall he is just a great inspiration to us. Read HERE more about him on Wikipedia. On the homework page, you can find the link to our video we watched in class too. We work really hard on our display and here are some wonderful poems and art from Y5. Please enjoy and leave a positive comment to our Y5’s, if you wish.

Poem by: Anaya

Played for his nation
Respected by people, rightfully
When war was declared,
he never stopped and stared…

Walter was a fan of football
Walter was a player of football…

Battled on the battlefield
– like a real British soldier.

Walter Tull

I played for the nation
since I was a young boy
I lived near the station
and played with joy!

When Germany invaded France
I knew something was wrong!
When war was declared
I never stopped and stared

I was the only black man
No one else to fought with
I stayed strong and healthy
but was never wealthy

I always tried my best
to pass all the tests
and never gave up on anything
that was the best pass on a test
A great footballer, I was!
Young and strong to go to war
and died for my country, peace and freedom


A Poem by Shivam –
Walter Tull

No matter if you’re black
Everybody is still the same
In your life, everybody feels the same pain
Football, then the Army!
Both very big jobs
Money doesn’t count!
…but family and friends you love, that does!

Look at the sky
and you will rise –
Walter Tull

Everybody should believe
he acted like the incredible Hulk

Death or Hero
might be sad!

Think of the peace we have
Walter Tull
saved our lives
he sacrificed his own life.

  1. Y5’s wrote these poems without any help/support, it is purely their own work/ideas. This shows Y5’s got TALENT!
