• 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!

Victorian Day

Y5’s playing hop-scotch

On Friday, 7th December 2012, we had a great ‘Victorian school experience’ and some Y5’s agreed that we are fortunate to have the type of education and schools we have now in our modern times. We didn’t like to learn the way the Victorian children had to learn! We were ‘shocked’ by the thought of how much boring work they had to chant and recite throughout the day. Victorian children had to obey a lot of rules as well. Y5’s were pretty good to obey the rules for about two hours, though the type of learning made it hard for them to obey some of the rules – e.g. to sit with a straight back and not slouching in your seat. Another rule, which was hard for some Y5’s, was not to ask any questions, though the majority did really well for the day, even their teacher found it hard to teach the Victorian way – which is a dire and dull way! Enjoy some of the enhanced photos. Y5’s will use their photos in Literacy this coming week to write a complete recount of the day.
