5.4 Combustion provides another opportunity to examine the conditions under which chemical reactions occur. The following are signs that a chemical reaction has taken place (and are referred to in some sources (eg. Although the syllabus writers do not want you to think so, a chemical reaction can occur in the absence of any of these indicators and these indicators can be present when the change (under normal definitions) is physical. 4.3 Solve problems and perform a first-hand investigation to measure the change in mass when a mixture such as wood is burned in an open container.
4.4 Outline the changes in molecules during chemical reactions in terms of bond-breaking and bond-making.
4.5 Explain that energy is required to break bonds and energy is released when bonds are formed. Burning hydrogen to form water is an exothermic process, indicating that the bonds between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms are in total stronger than the new bonds formed in the water molecules. Similarly, paper, wood petrol and other organic compounds do not burn until a flame or a spark is introduced into the reaction mixture.
A candle will not burn until the solid paraffin has been melted and the liquid paraffin turned into a gas. As with a bunsen burner flame, there is a clear area under the flame where the gases have not yet reached a temperature high enough for them to burn. The yellow part of the flame is incandescent carbon particles (similar to the glow in an old-fashioned incandescent light bulb). 4.8 Perform first-hand investigations to observe examples of endothermic and exothermic reactions. Ignition temperature (or autoignition temperature) of a substance is the lowest temperature at which it will spontaneously ignite in a normal atmosphere without an external source of ignition (such as a flame or a spark). 4.11 Identify the sources of pollution which accompany the combustion of organic compounds and explain how these can be avoided. Combustion can cause pollution (other than carbon dioxide) if the fuel or the oxidiser is contaminated or if insufficient oxidiser is supplied to the flame.
Carbon dioxide should also be regarded as a pollutant because of its contribution to the Greenhouse Effect. 4.12 Describe chemical reactions by using full balanced chemical equations to summarise examples of complete and incomplete combustion. All organic materials supplied with sufficient oxygen and at a high enough temperature will burn. Please take this opportunity to watch footage of your children having fun at Subic during CWW last month.
This first film features our students engaging in the various educational activities on offer, as well as relaxing communally on the beach.
MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing will take place for grade 5 starting next week. MAP results provide just one small piece of assessment data in the process of acquiring information and making judgments about student progress toward intended learning. There is no formal preparation required for MAP testing, however it is important to remind students to get a good nights sleep, and eat a healthy meal before taking the test. Personal Growth: provide physical, intellectual, emotional and social challenges through a variety of activities.
Community Building: provide a unique opportunity and setting for students and teachers to learn about one another and build a sense of community. Curriculum Connections: provide opportunities for students to apply what they learn in class to real-life situations. Awareness of the Philippines: provide an opportunity for students to interact and develop a relationship with the environment, traditions, and culture of the Philippines. Students from Papaya Academy spend the day learning and exploring with our Grade 5 Students. One way we help support students from Papaya Academy is by sending them home with a Care Pack.
Students will begin the day learning about how scientists collect data to learn more about the environment by using a transect line. Grade 5 students and teachers leave campus where they will develop an awareness of the Philippine environment. Students will learn about the ecological contribution of sea grass by collecting data along a transect line and observing the ocean habitat. Students will learn about the rescue efforts and the challenges of living alongside wildlife. Students will see a ‘Show and Tell’ of various animals at WIN and how they are specially adapted for their environment.
Students will design and create interactive toys for animals that have been rescued at WIN.
Up to four students will share a room (separated by gender).  These lists will be arranged by Advisory Teachers. All meals will be provided and include a balance of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.  If your child has food allergies, this information needs to be included on the medical forms. A permission slip will be sent home with students on Friday, January 29th with more specific details.
Please come out to support Middle School Students in their production of A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream. If you have questions related to a specific grade in a course, please email the teacher and schedule an appointment as necessary. Students who wish to participate in the parade must wear traditional Filipino attire or the Philippine Cultural Club (PCC) t-shirt.

This MS event will feature MS band, strings, choir and dance students showcasing traditional Filipino music, songs and dances. Parents of students in the Philippine Cultural Club will be providing a wide range of traditional tasty treats that will be available for purchase during lunch time.
For the final hour of the school day, students will be organized by house teams and will rotate around 5 different activities that range from Filipino games and dances to making paper parols.
Classroom Without Walls was once again a huge success in the whole of Middle School last week. During the second day of activities, I was lucky enough to witness our grade 5 students working together with each other, as well as our guests from Papaya Academy, to complete the so-called Marshmallow Challenge. Working collaboratively in groups of four, each team of students was provided with 20 sticks of spaghetti, one meter of sticky tape, one meter of string and a marshmallow. Our students demonstrated great initiative, with many teams showing themselves able to build stable spaghetti towers. Congratulations to all of our students and Papaya guests for the collaborative spirit which they showed throughout the day. Students enjoyed themselves by engaging in many different activities and learned to work with many different peers.
The grade 5 team is busy getting everything ready to make this CWW memorable and fun for the students. One of the Amazing Race activities will be at the pool – students may choose to wear their swimsuit underneath their PE clothes. All Students should BRING their own water bottle, snack and lunch or bring money (or have money on ID) to eat in the canteen. There are four different activities that students will participate in – Tie-Dye, Raft Rally, Team building, and Cooperative Games throughout the morning and afternoon. Students can wear swimsuit underneath their clothes or bring their swimsuit to put on before water games. Students get very wet during Water games  – please make sure your child has a towel and some dry clothes and shoes (slippers) to change into after. If there is inclement weather, Grade 5 teachers have a backup plan of movies in our classrooms. Classroom without Walls will take place on September 17-18.Please see Grade 5 CWW Parent Letter that went home for more information regarding the day. In line with our focus on Team Building and Service Learning for CWW,  60 students from Papaya Academy will be joining us on campus on Friday September 18.
Today in advisory, the students were very enthusiastic about helping others and volunteered to bring in these items. If you want to know more about Papaya Academy, please see this video that was created by students last year who were part of ISM’s Saturday Service group. After the welcoming remarks, the remainder of the evening will be devoted to visiting classrooms and meeting your child’s teachers. The Grade 5 team is excited to show you their classrooms, allow you the opportunity to see some student work, and give you information on classroom expectations. Please be reminded that Open House is not for individual student conferences.
Prior to visiting the Grade 5 Science Team requests that you take some time to download an App called Aurasma on your phone or iPad.
This blog will be the first stop at learning more about what is happening here at ISM in Grade 5. Just a quick reminder Back to School Night is August 27th, more information will be going out from the MS Office.
At the very first Assembly the Grade 5 Team had to find a creative way to introduce ourselves to the Middle School. However, an analogy may be useful in understanding the connection between energy and the chemical bond. If we want to pull two supermagnets apart, we have to do work - we lose energy which is gained by the magnets.
Whether the overall process in exothermic or endothermic depends on the relative strengths of the bonds. This additional energy that is required to start the reaction is called the activation energy. The heat of the flame melts the solid, and the liquid produced is carried up the wick by capillary action. This indicates that if you are to leave a burner on a yellow a€?safety flamea€?, the gas should be turned down to a minimum to avoid the effects noted. This is a week dedicated to involving our community and sustaining and safeguarding our environment. Students take three different MAP tests that measure academic growth across the school year in the areas of Reading, Language and Mathematics. At ISM, we believe sound assessment involves creating a multitude of ways to measure and communicate student learning over time – a photo album versus a single snapshot. The CWW program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn more about themselves, each other, and our host country, the Philippines. Through this interaction students have an opportunity to share their learning and participate in team building activities.
Please rinse out bottles, take off the labels, and turn into your child’s science teacher by February 1st. Students will attend four different activities (student choice) that develop collaboration and team building.
Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any specific questions in regards to our upcoming CWW trip. You will be able to access a pdf copy of the report card through the online parent portal and Power School.

Students in Grade 5 have opportunities to get creative in their Art and Drama classes and show off their talents in music by being part of a choir, band or orchestra.
Filipiniana is a program of events that has been carefully designed to honor and celebrate our wonderful host culture of the Philippines. Students can purchase food tickets in 100 peso increments from the PCC booth under the covered area by the MS plaza. The treats will go on tables in the hallway and everyone will get to have some delicious snacks during this afternoon celebration. With a strong focus on collaboration, all of our wonderful students were encouraged to participate in a whole range of activities which fostered a strong sense of community and teambuilding.
Their task was to them build a free-standing structure from these materials in just 18 minutes, with the winners being the team whose marshmallow was at the highest point above the surface of the table top.
On the tallest structure, the marshmallow was an incredible 31 centimetres above the table top, which represents a new school record. Thank you to parents who volunteered to help at the Amazing Race and for your support at bringing in delicious items for the Shared Lunch. Students reflected on their ability to work as a team and what it means to be a team player. Students have received a reminder in their planners for what they need for Thursday and Friday – please ask them to see it.
However, not all students need to go in the pool (just one students from each team), so if you would prefer your child not to get wet Thursday, please communicate this with your child.
We are excited to interact with students outside of the traditional classroom setting and I know it will be a great experience for both faculty and students. If for some reason you were not able to make it, below is the slide show that was shared during the Advisory Open House. Your schedule will be emailed home to you, so please check your email and contact the MS Office if you need assistance. You will be following your child’s class schedule throughout the evening, with ten minutes allotted for each period and five minutes passing time between classes. The grade 5 team very excited to be a part of your child’s learning journey as they transition into MS. Please click on the links above to learn more about what students are learning in each course.
This involves breaking the bonds between oxygen atoms in the O2 molecule, breaking the bonds between the hydrogen atoms in both H2 molecules, and making bonds between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms to form two H2O molecules. If we allow the separated magnets to approach each other, suddenly they bang together releasing energy in the form of sound to their surroundings. It is very hot these days and it is important to remind your children to drink enough water and stay hydrated.
Students will report to their first period class and then will go to the ES courtyard to watch the lowering of the 97 flags that represent all the different nationalities of ISM. This introduction to Service Learning develops students empathy and compassion as they learn more about who they are and the importance of giving back to their community. Please note that in the interest of being environmentally conscious, we will not be sending out hard copies of the report card. Participation in the parade is optional and advisory teachers will be discussing this event with students who are interested in joining in the parade.
As the FAT can only seat 800 people, and the total number of students and faculty is approximately 800, parents will unfortunately not be able to attend this event. Having students from Papaya Academy join us on Friday was an incredible experience for our students as they learned more about themselves by helping others. Please help support our CWW activities by volunteering to help at the Amazing Race Thursday and for donating food items for the Grade 5’s Picnic Lunch in the Courtyard.
In the beginning, there is a lot to learn, but don’t worry the Grade 5 teachers are here to support you and your children to make this year a success. At 11:50 there will be a special assembly in the FAT for MS students that highlights the internationalism of ISM.
When a student incorrectly answers a question, the following test question is adjusted accordingly and is at an easier level. Please contact the Middle School Office if you have any questions about how to access the report cards. Students are encouraged to come in traditional Philippine costumes, House Shirts, or the Filipiniana shirts (on sale outside of the canteen for 500 php).
Parent Teacher Conferences provide a great way to connect with your child’s teachers and to learn more about their progress in classes.
However, remember that learning is more than just assessments, so be sure to spend some time talking to your child about what they are doing in their classes and developing their learning habits. Come see the Middle School Students perform and showcase their talents. There will also be food items on sale so bring your money. In this way, your child will take a test specifically created for his or her learning level. On this day, students will have a shortened class schedule, (see below) two snacks and lunch at the Barrio Fiesta. It is recommended that students bring snacks from home, as the canteen is very busy on this day with many different students sharing the space.
Students will need to pay for special food tickets with money to eat from the various stalls during the Barrio Fiesta Lunch.
