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

Rugby Win!

On Wednesday 16th March, we took a team of Year 5 and 6 children to the partnership tag rugby tournament at Buford School.

The children were brilliant; immediately working as a team and playing to each others strengths.  Passing was great - as was tagging - and we had some VERY speedy players that managed to swerve and dodge past the other teams with ease.  At the end of the tournament, nearly all of the children on the team had scored at least one try.

We won 5 matches, drew one and lost one in some very tough games.  The children were a credit to the school and thoroughly deserved their win; well done!

The next round of the tag rugby will be on Wednesday 20th April at Witney Rugby Club 3.30 - 5pm.

Year 5 and 6 Netball Tournament

After a bit of a slow start, our netball squad pulled together to come joint third in the partnership netball tournament.  The children were fantastic and played many games back to back with end to end excitement.  After our initial loss, we went on to win 4 of our games with score lines of 7-6 and 7-4; it was VERY exciting and we were immensely proud of their team spirit and sportsmanship.  Well done!!


Year 6 enjoyed a morning at Witney Hospital learning accident prevention and first aid, as part of the Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools. If anything goes wrong, we know who to call!

Oxford Playhouse Aladdin

The whole school visited Aladdin at the Oxford Playhouse and our very own Abanazar was invited on stage. 

Year 4 Haka rugby dancing

On Tuesday 8th November the Year 4 pupils went to Buford School to learn and perform a Kiwi 'Haka-inspired' dance. It was loud, exciting and very enjoyable. We all had fun and could perform our dance in front of all the other partnership primary schools!
