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

Busy, busy, busy!!!

We've had a busy few weeks with Forest School; from a Royal Feast prepared and served by James (he also boiled the Kelly Kettle and made coffee for the adults!), to making bug boxes, collecting nettles for cordial, learning to square lash, building dens, making natural firelighters with wax and pine cones and discovering a fox skeleton!  The children have had a great time and have built on their learning from week to week.

On Friday 20th July, we will have an extra Forest School session - more details to follow.


On 22nd May we had another fab visit from Mike Mullen -3x Pro BMX Halfpipe Champion and Former World Master Champion.  Once again, he came in and started the day with an assembly that reminisced about his life and encouraged the children to keep going and never give up; whatever their passion, continue to work hard and -if you fail -  pick yourself up, dust yourself down and have another go!  

Throughout the day, each class got to take part in a workshop with Mike.  He taught some children to ride a bike, boosted the confidence of others and encouraged all of them to be daring and step outside their comfort zone.

At the end of the day, he put together a small team of children to take part in a show for the rest of the school and parents.  To the amazement of the children, he even jumped over 7 teachers and parents!!

If the day did anything, then hopefully it inspired children to dust of their bikes and scooters and get outside.  

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
