• 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!

Bread in a jar


Condensation  – why?


Mould – evidence


As part of our Science week-activities, we have bread bits in a jar – it’s been in the jar for a week and Y5’s could tell that the bread would eventually go mouldy – and we have some of the evidence now! – but only after  a long, deep and intensive discussion about the changes in bread and all the why’s around it. We are eager to see more ‘changes’ and wonder how long it’s going to take before we see more of it. We will need a microscope to investigate it in depth.

Let’s read more about Microorganisms – which is also one of your Y6-topics!
Microorganisms are very tiny living things. They are so small that you need a microscope to see them.

Microorganisms are all around us, in the air, in our bodies and in water. Some microorganisms are harmful to us, but others are helpful to us.

There are three types of microorganism:

  • viruses
  • bacteria
  • fungi
