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

Years 5 and 6 Football Tournament

On Thursday 1st December some very enthusiastic and energetic footballers from year 5 and 6 participated in an extremely competitive tournament at Buford Secondary School. The team work and spirit was fantastic and there were some very triumphant moments for us. Although we finished 6th out of 8 schools, two of the higher places were tied and we managed to pull off some exceptional performances against some very competitive sides. Well done to everybody who took part!

Chairman's Cup

On Wednesday 25th May, a group of Year 5 and 6 children took part in the Chairman's Cup. The children worked well as a team and supported each other, which was lovely to see. They were positive and determined throughout the day and performed very well, coming third year out of six teams, narrowly missing a place in the semi-final - well done Year 5 and 6!

An afternoon with our very own visiting scientist!

On Wednesday 25th May, Dr Sanderson (mum of Liam and Owen) came in to talk to the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils about her work as a research scientist at Oxford University. She showed us a fantastic presentation to explain how she became a biologist and how she is studying chromosomes. She also brought with her a range of microscopes and slides, as well as some exciting resources for collecting, viewing and identifying plants and animals. Some of us dressed up as a scientist too! We had a fantastic afternoon and we would like to thank Dr Sanderson for visiting! Dr Sanderson is a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) ambassador for Oxfordshire and has access to a wide variety of resources. She has offered to come back in and visit other classes. Thank you Dr Sanderson!

So much happening

The children are loving coming out to Forest School.  This week, the pond was very popular; we discovered that the the frogspawn had hatched and we now have tadpoles swimming around!  Our resident frog caused much excitement with the children spotting it and then being keen to try and catch it...most of the time, it was just too quick - but it caused a lot of fun and laughter!

Many of the children are keen to use tools to make things; we had lots of tree cookies being made and designed using homemade charcoal.  Others preferred to whittle - and we did have a Harry Potter-esque wand created!  

The children played, created, worked together, persevered (when using a palm drill to create a hole!) and solved problems...phew!

More success for our rugby team!

Our tag rugby team have come fourth in the Witney area finals. This is really impressive as many of the other schools are much larger than us, and our children had little experience with the sport before. Well done everyone, and we are now automatically in the top tier at the Chairman's Cup in Oxford at the end of May.
