• 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!

Zindzi – our Rhino project!



In Y5 we’ve been learning about Rhinos and the poaching of Rhinos! We are going to have a stuffed rhino – not a real stuffed rhino – visiting us in September for 3 weeks. Please read HERE more about Zindzi and the other 4 travelling rhinos. In our school we take part in this global project, started by a South African teacher from a school in Cape Town. We have learnt – from this link – that there have been 688 Rhinos poached – in South Africa only! – during 2012 and January till 16th July 2013, the number for 2013 was already 482. The latest statistics – 18th July – 488! Six more Rhinos after only 2 days! This is SCARY. See the table below – click on the image for a larger view. We are busy to raise awareness in our school about the poaching of Rhinos. During September Zindzi will visit some classes and they will also learn about Rhinos and how we need to care for our animals in the wild. We have been working on a Power Point about the Rhinos and here are some of our work to enjoy, though we are still in the stage of improving our Power Points. We are also busy working on small project of colouring little Zindzi’s that will get displayed in classes around the school with another little Zindzi with Rhino facts. Look at our creative patterns. We need to colour a lot of Zindzi’s – to have them on display in every corner of the school! Click the following power point presentations to enjoy our work.
