• 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!

Hubble Webb and SALT Space Telescopes


We know space is just ‘dark’ – or ‘black‘ – but Nasa’s Space Telescope: Hubble makes everything coming ‘alive‘ with their colour filters. Follow the link of Hubble and enjoy the wonderful world of our solar system. Hubble is going to retire in a few years time and will get replaced by a new space telescope called: WEBB Telescope. On THIS LINK  you can read everything about Hubble, the Hubble-team, etc. On this next link you can play around with Hubble’s filters to see how NASA use it to ‘enhance‘ the photos for us.

On this link HERE you can read about the amazing new WEBB Telescope…


On THIS LINK you can play around with buttons to see how the colours affect the images. Don’t forget to click on the menu list in the far left as well.


Have you heard about SALT? SALT = Southern Africa Large Telescope – this telescope is in South Africa and is the largest space telescope in the Southern Hemisphere.

In this next video, you can see Astronaut Luca [from Italy] where he left the Quarantine Departure to get ready for going to the International Space Station [ISS]. On our class twitter account [@Y5Class] we follow @Astro_luca and also a lovely 15 year old girl – @AstronautAbb – Abigail’s dream is to go to Mars in 2030! She’s a great inspiration with what she’s currently doing. Here’s her website: http://astronautabby.com/ copy and paste it in your browser.
