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 5/6 Cricket Tournament

On Monday 22nd May, the Year 5s and 6s took part in a cricket tournament at Shipton-under-Wychwood. The children were great team players, enthusiastic and had big smiles on their faces! I think the beautiful weather helped!

An army marches on its stomach...

While the Year 5s were at Kwik Cricket, the Year 4s achieved something of a culinary miracle yesterday! With military precision, using a recipe close to that used by the Roman army, we managed to make 26 slipper loaves from scratch in 2 hours! Everybody took their own 'loaf' home, and we are hoping they tasted ok.....

Puppy Time...

Honey and Woody Shipway paid us a visit last Friday (and saved us from a mental maths test...!) We wish them the best of luck in their new homes xx

Anyone for tennis??

We are currently enjoying some superb tennis coaching from Ryan Fitzjohn (who also happens to be an ex Brize pupil!) This comes courtesy of Excel Tennis, and we are LOVING it! Many thanks to Ryan, Excel, and Mrs Rae (who organised the coaching for us.)

Bookfeast visit for Years 3 to 5

On a very rainy Wednesday 17th June, Years 3 to 5 visited St Hugh's College, Oxford to meet the children's author Claire Barker. 

We all enjoyed listening to her speak about her inspirations to write (she has always loved reading) and we all enjoyed creating a new Pirate character with her. 

She told us that she had been a teaching assistant and was frustrated by the lack of exciting books around. This inspired her to start writing her own stories, the first of which, Wishbone Pepper- Ghost Dog, we have been enjoying at snack and story time. She reminded us that it is never too late to start writing and that it is very, very easy to quickly develop a character and a setting.

So maybe we can all have a go!
