It was lovely to welcome you all to Year 5 today. I am sure you are going to be a fantastic class. I was very impressed with your collaborative tower building skills! (Some photos below).

 Our first curriculum theme is 'Out of this World'. Read all about it!


The more you know beforehand the more fun we can have in school. Here are some links to get you going:

General space information:      


Compare the sizes of the planets in the solar system:

International Space Station


Please send me a postcard during the holidays. Tell me all about where you are and what you are doing. Make sure it is from somewhere interesting!

 Also, if you email me a photo of yourself on holiday I can post it on the blog the week before you come back to school. My email is and my address at school is:

Room Y56 – 115,

Bangkok Patana School,

643 La Salle Road,

Sukhumvit 105,




I hope you have wonderful holiday with your family and friends. I am looking forward to seeing you fresh faced and ready to learn on Wednesday 21st August.

Mr Ben

Like Darwin (biography here), Albert Einstein did not like school much. It must be hard to teach a genius!

Despite not enjoying school, both of them came up with ideas that changed the world. Darwin (amongst others) discovered that species gradually change of time (Evolution) and Einstein came up with lots of new ideas about the universe.

Read the (made up) diary entry from Einstein. Answer the questions in your red books not on the sheet.
