Welcome to Voyager Class!

Voyagers is our 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 (teacher) and by Miss Kearvell 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 - (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)

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

RAF Falcons Trip

On Friday 5th May, Year 5 and 6 took a trip to the RAF base to watch the Falcons. Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, the Falcons were unable to parachute down, although I think watching the C-17 fly over, exploring inside the chinook, meeting and receiving utographs from the Falcons and learning how they pack their parachutes more than made up for it! The beautiful weather and ice-cream probably helped too!

Year 4 Languages Day

All of the Year 4 children enjoyed a day out at Buford Secondary School on Thursday 27th April.

They experienced a wide range of languages (French, Spanish, German and Japanese) and activities.

The children were amazing and we are very proud of how they conducted themselves and interacted with new children and teachers!

Fab first Forest School session with Class 4

We had every type of weather this afternoon; sun, rain, hail and even some snow!!

The children embraced their time out at Forest School; they built dens, went pond dipping, dug holes, started fires, sawed tree cookies, did some natural weaving, made different Elder creations, learned to lash, toasted marshmallows and attempted to put up a hammock!!  There was so much teamwork, co-operation, discovery and perseverance naturally happening - it was lovely to see!  

Same again next week!!

Visit from Robert Courts MP

Our new MP, Robert Courts, came to school on 6th April to meet our Key Stage 2 children and explain who he is, what he does, and how they too can become an MP or even Prime Minister one day. He answered all their questions and ended with a photo with our school council (who he described as the equivalent of Parliament). 

Lego Robotics

Four of our Year 4 children went to Burford School for a day of Lego robotics, programming a robot to move. Great fun was had by all!
