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

Year 5's turn!

Year 5 came out to Forest School for their first session this week.  Once they'd had a tour and talked about how we need to look after ourselves outdoors, they all went off to different activities.  They built dens, put up a rope swing, made mud cakes in the mud kitchen, decorated themselves with 'war paint', went pond dipping (and found a frog) and made charcoal.  Many were keen to learn how to use the tools safely, and we had whittling going on to create pegs for dens as well as some tree cookies being made.

At snack, we had the traditional s'mores - which seemed to be rather popular!  In the coming weeks they would like to cook burgers and bacon sandwiches!

Writing Workshop

Two of our boys, Zach and Fin, were chosen for a Gifted and Talented writing workshop at Magdalen College School, Oxford, held over three days. It included working with the author Caroline Lawrence (author of the fantastic Roman Mysteries books) and gaining inspiration from the Oxford Museum of the History of Science. 

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!!

Y6 IMPS

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!
