• 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!

Harnoor: Seasons In Y5 we’ve been learning about seasons during our ‘Earth and beyond’ topic in Science. We had an art day, where we started the day by playing around with all the colours and we created our own pallet of colours. We all then painted the seasons, by looking at our pallet and thinking […]

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 […]

Solar Wind

Have you heard about a  Solar Wind? Read on the link of the BBC more about it. On THIS LINK you can watch a video about the ‘deadly‘ solar wind. This LINK is a GREAT link to visit, loaded with fun and interesting space-facts/fun. Read about the FIRST  British Astronaut – now in further training to […]

Leaves Flowers Stems Roots and…

We have more plant-experiments! We are curious to know what parts of a plant can grow. In our picture [above] we have the leave and part of the stem of a geranium. What do you think? In the next picture you can already see some tiny roots that have developed on the stem of the […]

Life Cycles – animal behaviour

Y5 – enjoy the…. dung beetle!

Ants – update: The females do all the work!

Our Ants have moved into their Antarium – finally. We like to watch them – peacefully and quietly – during break or lunch time. We’ve also received some ‘instructions‘ with the Ants on how to look after them. Ants don’t like bright lights, so we do cover them during the day, when we are not […]

Photosynthesis and ants

Life Cycles – in particular plants – our topic in Science. See this clip about photosynthesis, not really part of our topic, but we’ve already discussed it when we looked at our plantarium, which is still in class.  Please click THIS LINK to read about each stage in the life cycle of Ants! On the […]

Fossils! Work in progress

We watched this video today and made our own fossils. Watch this space! Enjoy some of our fossils – work-in-progress. Keep watching this space… From our class discussion:- We’ve decided the following is going to happen: the Plaster of Paris mixed with water will settle and solidify after a few hours. We plan to leave […]

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 […]

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 […]


Y5’s Science topic for this half term, Changing State [all about solids, liquids and gases and how they can change] links to our previous topic of ‘Gases all around us.’ In our class we have this very exciting ‘project‘ and we are going to observe our terrarium over the next two weeks [or more] to see […]


Y5!  We’ve been looking at the Water Cycle – we only made a start – and lots of questions have been asked by some of you. I’ve found you a fantastic link about clouds – and clouds in art [as you can see]. Please click HERE to read more about types of clouds, how clouds […]


Gases in everyday use

How do flames get their colour?

A stinking gas cloud has hit parts of England after travelling more than 26 miles across the sea from France

Image: bbc news Interesting news from CBBC’s Newsround – linking to our science topic: Gases all around us. [see also the new widget on the sidebar with a news link to cbbc] The gas cloud reached Dover on Tuesday. The foul-smelling odour is believed to have escaped from a chemical plant in Rouen before crossing […]

Gases around us

Morning Y5’s! I hope you’re having a safe and good day at home! School is closed today due to the snow! Be careful when playing in the snow and remember, when throwing a snowball to somebody, to throw it from a distance and not in the person’s face. Happy Birthday to Ruben! Today is Monday, […]


We’ve been exercising today! Phew, some of us got a bit more tired than others! Some of us discovered we need to exercise more often! We have been trying to find out what the effect of exercise on our bodies is. Update: We’ve been collecting our results and you can now see what our graphs […]

The heart – as explained by a red blood cell!

This is an image only – the video link is in green. Y5’s have been learning about the Heart and how the heart functions. We watched this video today in class and learnt a lot of new things! Y5’s have all asked for the link to watch it at home too. This is a cute explanation […]
