• 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.

    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!

Instructions – thaumatrope

Today Y5’s had really great fun during Literacy. With Victorians as our topic, we looked into the thaumatrope! We all had a go in making our own one in class. It was quite ‘tricky’ – as we had to follow instructions by reading it ourselves, without the help of our Teacher or any other adult help. Some of us discovered that we were not reading the instructions carefully. We learnt quite a lot about instructions! After looking at the features yesterday, we could easily identify it in our text of today. Here is what Y5’s have learnt: Harnoor: From the instructions it was clear that what it is about: How to make a typical Victorian game. Jeevan: How to follow instructions, the instructions and the layout were quite clear and easy to follow. Shivam: Sub-headings were helpful to read through the instructions and all sorts of detail e.g. hints and ‘warnings’ were also given to make sure what to ‘look out’ for. Gursimran: You need to concentrate and read carefully, otherwise you might go wrong somewhere! Kuljit: If you go wrong somewhere, you will then know how to do it better if you have a  second go and you will then be able to improve with the second game. AvirajB: Instructions are quite important when you need to make something properly. Language is clear and captions do help a lot in explaining the steps of the game. Anaya: Pictures to explain are very helpful and help understanding it better. SimranjitB: The text in bold is really important and you need to re-read that again. Navkiran: The introduction gives you a little bit of the background of what you are making and all sorts of extra information. Kiran: The instructions work like a guide, guiding you through the whole process of the making. Ruben: Hints and warnings were really helpful throughout the making and you should take notice of it. AvirajS: Step-by-Step instructions are helpful, as you can follow the steps to get it right. If you miss a step, you might get it wrong, so make sure you follow the steps very carefully. Avneet: Having a list for the equipment is a must, so you can prepare yourself before you make something and check that you have everything. Komal: A time-indication is good, then you know how to plan according to the time that you need to make the object/game. You can then prepare and plan your time accordingly. Y5’s have all agreed that they will be able to write up instructions for this game without any help! If you want to make your own, see the link in the Victorian section of the side bar of our blog. Good luck!
