• 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!

Manyara’s visit




We are busy with our Literacy Unit: Stories from other cultures. We have been reading the story of: Mufaro’s beautiful daughters. Guess what! Manyara visited us! All the way from Zimbabwe! You can see her in these pictures. She shared with us a lot of her life with Nyasha. We learnt a lot more about the story and how she feels to be Nyasha’s servant. We learnt from her how hard it is to be your sister’s servant. You know what? Manyara needs to bow down and go on her knees when she serves her sister some food. She also needs to curtsy! We asked her many questions, as we wanted to know so many things about her life and her family.  Manyara explained a few things that she would like to change: to be honest, to be a good person and not to be a two-face in the company of her dad! Wow, that’s a mouthful and we all have decided that we need to live our lives like Nyasha. Manyara also brought with her some fabrics, typical of Zimbabwe/Africa and some of her jewelry. We all agreed afterwards that we know now a lot more about the culture of Manyara. We are now ready to write the story from Manyara’s point of view, as we know now the ‘truth’!
