• 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!

Philosophy for Children is an educational proposal that makes possible children and teenagers develop their multidimensional thinking, therefore their reasoning abilities, their critical thinking, their creative thinking and their caring thinking. Philosophy largely involves asking questions to which there are no known, absolute answers. Investigating these questions rationally helps us develop principles of existence, knowledge, and ethics or acceptable behaviour.

Philosophy for Children – In Y5 we had our first philosophical discussion on Friday last week. It was all about ‘white lies’ – and we still need to continue and conclude our discussion about the ‘white lies’. Some very interesting thoughts were shared. See also Harnoor’s very own poem she’s written on ‘white lies’. We hope to have more of these discussions, it will help our children to develop their thinking! 

Please click HERE to read her poem – or slide a few entries down to read it.

A fantastic quote: ‘Give children a thought and they’ll learn for a day. Teach them to think and they’ll learn for a lifetime.’David Hyerle [this is what Y5V’s teacher has been trying Y5 children to do – for the past six months….some of our Y5’s are already brilliant at ‘thinking’ – others find it more ‘difficult‘, but we are slowly getting ‘there’! hopefully…hehe]
