Welcome to Curie Class!

Welcome to Curie (KerrRae the children like to say!) Class! Your child is lucky enough to be one of only 25 children in a mixed Year 4 and 5 class. Helping and inspiring your child on their learning journey are Mrs Rae (Monday and Tuesday am), Miss Kerr (Monday pm, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday), Miss Kearvell (every day!) and Mrs Williams (mornings only). 

It has been a pleasure to welcome your child to Curie 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 - (Week 1)Music (improvise and compose) and Spanish (describing appearance/personality) 

(Week 2) Art(illustration)/DT(construction) and Computing (e-safety and effective use of search engines)

Tuesday - PE (Tudor dance) and RE (Islam/Muhammad)

Wednesday - Science (Forces and Magnets) or Topic

Thursday - Science or Topic

Friday - PE (rugby) and PSHCE (relationships, friendship and bullying)

On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, Year 4 will be taught on their own and Year 5 will be taught together alongside Year 6.

We already have some exciting plans for the upcoming months, including an excursion to Hampton Court (9th November) and Young Voices (January 2018); both of these trips promise to be exciting and will leave your child with lifelong memories.

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 Curie Class Team

Year 5/6 Cricket Tournament

A huge well done to our Year 5s and 6s who enjoyed a lovely day in the sunshine, playing cricket in Wychwood. 

Throughout the day, the children were cheerful, enthusiastic and very well-behaved!

Gifted and Talented Sports Day

A group of Year 4 children were invited to a day of sports coaching at Magdalen College School, Oxford. They all had a great day and did extremely well. 

Show and Tell...

Last week, we made a monumental decision in Curie Class - to devise a Show and Tell timetable!! The challenge is for the children to tell (or show) us something about themselves that we don’t already know after almost a year together. Everybody will have 5 minutes on a certain day (although there is wiggle room on both sides). The timetable is as follows:


16th - Kizzy and Elliott

17th - Lauren and Mollie

23rd - Jesse and Luca

24th - Evan and Ollie


6th - Charlie P and Ella M

7th - Isaac and Lilly-May

13th - Freddie and William J

14th - Charlie H and Joe

20th - Issi and Arwyn

21st - Marta and Sebastian

27th - James and Ella B

28th - Stella and Isobel


4th - William R

Book Feast on Star Wars Day!! 

Years 4 and 5 all trooped off to St.Hugh’s in Oxford last Friday to hear Elys Dolan (author of ‘Knighthood for Beginners’). It was an interesting session and our little crew behaved impeccably. We then toured the grounds and decided we would be quite happy if St.Hugh’s was our school! 

Achievements and connections

We've been lucky with the fine weather over the last couple of weeks.  The children have grown in confidence and have been going their own ways at Forest School.  They all have their own interests - some of them working with others to create dens and others seeing something that they'd like to do and choosing to independently have a go.  Many are inspired by each other.  Some see what their peers are doing and offer to help; this week we had someone making a bug home for a friend who loves looking for bugs and animals. Other children offer to help with sawing - or collecting silver birch twigs to help feed the fire.  A great couple of sessions with new learning and time to for the children to reflect on themselves in the classroom, as well as outdoors.
