• 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!

All things Science

We have another terrarium! Our first one just broke in two pieces – without any warning! We think it’s a weak spot in the jar. We will start observing again and keep record from what we see. In the photos of today, you can already see some changes after just one day! I wonder if some Y5’s can tell us what it is they can see?


Here we have a jar with bread bits! We have a Science week coming up and we are going to observe what’s going to happen with the bread in this sealed jar – apart from other activities we will be doing.


Shivam’s home experiment! After our ‘Foamy Fountain‘ experiment in class, Shivam visited the link – 2nd ‘Science Experiments’-link in the Science section – [Sciencebob] to have some fun and brought this to class today! Well done to Shivam, he got inspired by the interesting and fun activities from Sciencebob. We hope more Y5’s will find inspiration by visiting those Science experiment-links. Please make sure you do have an adult with you when trying out some of those experiments!

We also have a ‘fair test’ investigation going on! We would like to know if the shape of the container affects the rate of evaporation. We changed one thing: the shape of the container. We keep the same: the amount of water, the place and the time we observe! We will keep you posted about our findings.


Thursday update: 14/3/2013 -Changes in our bread jar – what do you spot? Why is this happening? What is going to happen next? Why? What do you think might happen within the next week? Why?



Our new [2nd terrarium] – what do you notice after 2 days? What is it called? What is happening in our terrarium?
