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

Bonjour Boulogne!

On Wednesday, some of the Year 6s spent the day in Boulogne. Despite the early start and rainy weather, the children remained positive, happy and smiley! They had a fantastic time wandering around the local market, exploring the town, writing postcards home and sipping on 'chocolat chaud' in a little cafe. It was very impressive to see how keen they all were to speak as much French as possible, so well done, Year 6!

Maths Challenge

On Thursday 15th October, Years 5 and 6 attended a maths challenge day at Magdalen College in Oxford. The children engaged in a variety of practical maths activities, which required them to work as part of a team and think outside the box! They had lots of fun learning maths in a different environment and trying to beat the clock with their calculations!

Hockey Tournament

Congratulations to our Year 5/6 team for their great sportsmanship at the Burford hockey tournament. We came third of six - not bad considering that we were one player down and it is a new sport for most of the children. Well done everyone. 

Hockey 

As well as going swimming this term, the children are playing hockey in their PE lessons. Their competitive side made an appearance on Tuesday as they played for points in mini games - note the professional kit as well!

Crime and Punishment

As part of our Crime and Punishment topic, the children spent the afternoon sketching various medieval punishments, such as the guillotine and stocks! They focused really hard on their shading and the pictures will be added to our (currently very plain-looking!) classroom display.
