• 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!

    Queen Victoria: Reigned: 1837-1901 [63 years and 7 months]

Please Sir, I want some more

The story is about Oliver Twist – written by Charles Dickens, a Victorian. It is Victorian Times. Oliver is in the Workhouse. He is the one that needs to ask for ‘MORE‘ food! This is the famous scene from the Oliver Twist movie. The scene is called: ‘Please Sir, I want some more.’  Oliver begs for more food. Children didn’t get  fed properly in the Workhouses. You will learn more about the Workhouses during our history topic of the Victorians. 

In the Workhouse the boys would have been fed on watery gruel and would have slept on the floor with nothing but sacks for covering, and a constant cold chill from both the wind and the dreary, terrifying atmosphere of the building. The Workhouse was a very “Christian” institution concerned with the souls of its inmates. To that end there would be plaques carrying religious messages “God is just”, “God is good”. The Guardians of the workhouse believed that they were improving the inmates’ morality as well as saving them from decline.
