• 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.

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

Interesting news from CBBC’s Newsround – linking to our science topic: Gases all around us. [see also the new widget on the sidebar with a news link to cbbc]

The gas cloud reached Dover on Tuesday.

The foul-smelling odour is believed to have escaped from a chemical plant in Rouen before crossing the Channel and hovering over four English counties.

Police in Kent, Surrey, Hampshire and Dorset received calls complaining about the stench.

Authorities say there are no serious concerns but people who are worried should shut their windows.

Smells like diesel

The gas is reported believed to be mercaptan, an additive to natural gas, that smells a bit like fumes from a diesel car.

It leaked on Monday from a plant near Rouen, 75 miles (120km) north-west of Paris. Winds blew the cloud over northern France on Monday night and then into England on Tuesday.
