• 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!

Poly…gon…. Polymorph

polymorph

 

In Y5 we had another exciting ‘experience’ – with Polymorph – to conclude the science-week activities. Polymorph has some unusual properties. We saw today how polymorph pellets turned from opaque to clear in a minute or two. It can be moulded in a variety of ways and stays workable until a much lower temperature. All Y5’s went home with a tablespoon of polymorph – and the safety  instructions on what/how to do. 
Read on THIS LINK  which is a pdf-document- more and there are some images on how it can be used as well.
PRECAUTIONS USING POLYMORPH – only with an adult
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD POLYMORPH BE HEATED ABOVE THE RANGE 60°-
65° MAX. ABOVE THIS TEMPERATURE IT WILL BECOME A STICKY ADHERENT MASS AND
PRESENT THE SAME HAZARD AS HOT-MELT GLUE  – ALSO: DO NOT HEAT IT IN A MICROWAVE.
