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

Year 5 Music Festival

Well done to all the Year 5 children who participated in the Year 5 Music Festival at Burford. It was a really fun evening for all involved.

Sky TV

Here is our movie! The Writing Club had a fantastic experience at Sky TV! For Safer Internet Day, we produced a TV news programme about keeping safe online. The children had to work in teams to come up with ideas, write the script, select costumes and backgrounds, film and edit. It was amazing to use Sky's professional-quality equipment! (When you watch, you can click "no thanks" when it asks you to log in or register.)

Forest School in the Snow

We've had a great few weeks outdoors with the Year 5's.

The children wanted to make swords, so before we went about doing this, we practised square lashing using strawberry laces; the incentive was that if they achieved it, they could eat it!  The following weeks, several swords were made!!

Many children have enjoyed digging and creating channels for water to flow.  Others have been working together to put up dens and create pulley systems and zip lines.

The cold and the snow has not put the children off, and we always come together around the fire for a hot snack and a warm drink.

Ashmolean Trip

Years 3 to 6 had a fantastic day at the Ashmolean Museum learning all about the Ancient Greeks. Thank you to Miss Kerr for organising the trip. 

Sheldonian Concert

Years 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Oxfordshire Schools Concert. They heard the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra playing a range of pieces including classical favourites such as Elgar's Nimrod and songs from films such as The Greatest Showman and How to Train Your Dragon. They were introduced to the performers and their instruments and several left wanting to learn something new.
