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

Snowdon

Just had our lunch stop (thank you Chris and Fiss!) and now continuing our journey! 

Investigating the properties of materials...

This week, we created a new character in literacy, so meet Missy Kay - an intrepid explorer who travels the rainforest with her trusty zebra, Julian. Missy Kay is partial to the odd survival snack, but unfortunately these often become squashed and inedible as she explores. We realised this was due to the inadequate packaging, and set about finding an alternative. We investigated the properties of different materials and decided the snacks needed to be wrapped in something waterproof, strong, hard, lightweight and insoluble! The children worked in groups to decide which materials to use, and how to test them. The upshot of this was survival snacks wrapped in unusual packaging, put into school bags and bounced about on the trim trail and the rec - enjoy the pics!

Y5 Enrichment Day at Burford

The children had a lot of fun, especially meeting the animals! Well done Harriet for winning your group prize, and well done everyone for behaving so well and joining in. 

Swimming Gala

We had a good turnout for the annual swimming gala - despite it being on an Inset Day! 

The children that came performed brilliantly - with some having to swim up a year group, and others being asked to swim even though they'd only come to watch!!  We managed to fill all races and had many children placed in the top 3.

Thanks to all the children that came along - and to all of the parents that came to support.

Rainforest Day

On Thursday, Tutu and Curie class joined forces to carry out three different rainforest-based activities: they were sent on a (Portuguese!) scavenger hunt, painted huge leaves and made little critters out of various fruits and vegetables. 

We loved the children's enthusiasm and they worked hard, while having fun, on their activities. I think all also found a new-found love for Biscoff!

Thank you very much to Sebastian’s mum, Anna, for coming in and helping us out.
