Welcome to Voyager Class!

This is the Year 5 and 6 Class, though in the mornings it is split - the Year 6 children become Falcons and are taught separately, while the Year 5s are joined by some children from Year 4. In the mornings, Years 4 and 5 are taught by Mrs Rae and Miss Kerr (teachers) and by Miss Kearvell, Mrs Deegen and Mrs Williams (teaching assistants) while Year 6 are taught by Miss Burn (teacher) and by Mrs Bostock and Mrs Deegan (teaching assistants. In the afternoon, Year 5 and 6 are taught by Miss Kerr and Miss Burn.

It has been a pleasure to welcome your child to Voyager Class; they have come back after the summer break, ready and eager to learn.  We are very much looking forward to spending the rest of the year with them.

To help you to support your child, we feel it is important that you understand our routine; every morning, we dedicate our time to Spelling, Maths and Literacy, and our afternoon timetable is currently as follows:

Monday - Thursday and Monday afternoons will vary, depending on the weather going into the winter months. Subjects will either be Science or Topic; or PE and PSHE 

Tuesday - Music/Computing and RE (Islam/Muhammad)

Wednesday - Swimming (for Y6) and Dance (for Year 5), followed by Art

Thursday - See Monday

Friday - French and DT

If you have any questions and need to talk to us at any point, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes from the Voyager Class Team

EASTER SCHOOL FUN!

The Year 6 children have just completed 3 egg- citing mornings of Easter School where they used mathematical, ICT, language and drama skills -not to mention collaboration and patience! They worked in groups and were tasked to design their very own theme parks. They had to consider budgets and planning, advertising and pricing. They have produced some fabulous theme park posters which are on display just outside the classroom. The 3 days culminated in the production of a short TV advert competition. We enjoyed a lovely lunch (cooked by Mrs Bostock) followed by an Easter egg hunt, which proved very tricky for some, although Harriet obviously has a direct line to the Easter Bunny-she found her eggs in record time! They all worked incredibly hard and learned a few lessons in diplomacy along the way! Well done to all and a Happy Easter!

Falcons at Forest School

It's been lovely to watch this group develop over the weeks.  They are becoming increasingly creative; looking at what could be done - but using this to inspire their own projects.  They've made dream catchers, dens in trees, nature tiles with plaster of paris and wooden animals.  The pond is always a hive of activity with frog spotting, chatter and laughing...the children even came up with a song that they later performed around the campfire!!

We were lucky to be given a parachute from the pre-school (thank you!) - which proved very popular; lots of fun and games!!

Falcons and Voyagers Sharing Assembly and Workshop

Many thanks to the children in both Voyagers and Falcons for putting on such a wonderful assembly today. You put so much effort into your presentations and deserved the praise you received a second a result.

Many thanks to all the parents who were willing to muck in and get their hands dirty so that we could finish our paper mache pots. They look fantastic!

Winston Churchill Public Speaking Competition

Well done to our public speaking team, who worked so hard researching, writing and practising their speeches on the theme of deforestation. On the day they held their own splendidly amidst very talented speakers from all over the region. I was truly proud to represent Brize Norton in their company. 

Going potty...

On the last day before half term, all of the children in KS2 created their own Greek pot using a balloon, cardboard and PVA soaked paper - very traditional Ancient Greek techniques indeed! It was a lovely morning, and a welcome end to assessment week. We are looking forward to getting the paint out to finish them off in the next week or two..
