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

Sheldonian Concert

Years 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Oxfordshire Schools Concert. They heard the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra playing a range of pieces including classical favourites such as Elgar's Nimrod and songs from films such as The Greatest Showman and How to Train Your Dragon. They were introduced to the performers and their instruments and several left wanting to learn something new. 

Archaeologists of the future...

Our Falcons/Voyagers gang had a great time making discoveries about Ancient Greece today! Artefacts were unearthed, lands were found and dates were chronologically organised - we even found time for some art history. We’re now all super excited and ready for next week’s trip to the Ashmolean!

Y5 indoor athletics

Well done everyone in Year 5 for having a go, doing your best and showing great sportsmanship. We are proud of you all. 

Blenheim Palace Public Speaking

The Writing Club went to Blenheim Palace for a tour and workshop on public speaking inspired by the work of Winston Churchill. The trip was great fun and we have lots of ideas for doing our own speeches now! Our winning team will return to Blenheim to compete against other schools in March. 

Seasoned Forest Schoolers

We've had a great couple of weeks so far at Forest School.  

KS2 are studying Ancient Greece in Topic at the moment so the children explored the site in the first session by searching for Greek pictures that then needed ordering into a timeline.  They could then have a go at writing their name on a tree cookie using the Greek Alphabet.  However, as seasoned Forest Schoolers, many of the children were already keen to follow their own path of learning.

Some chose to build dens, whilst others whittled spears, lit fires, made charcoal, created pencils or built pulley systems.  The mud kitchen was popular, so we added some herbs the following week and the children created Harry Potter potions!

It's been so lovely to see the children working together outdoors; exploring, playing, growing in confidence, using their imagination and persevering when things don't go as planned.
