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

Shakespeare Rehearsal

We had our cast workshop for The Tempest at the New Theatre Oxford on Monday. The theatre is huge! The children were magnificent and rose to the challenge of such a large space very well. The show should be very good...

Junior Citizens

The Junior Citizens Trust has been in existence since 1991 and is offered free of charge to every year 6 state pupil in Oxfordshire. Each year approximately 5000 children take part in the safety activities provided by the Junior Citizens Trust and partners.

On Tuesday morning the Falcons travelled to Oxford to take part in the Junior Citizens experience. They thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour visit which placed them in 8 interactive scenarios dealing with a variety of situations from a river rescue and internet safety to recognising potential dangers in their own homes.

They were all encouraged to make decisions, learning a range of life skills along the way, which focussed upon how to keep themselves safe whilst potentially helping others who may be in difficulty or distress. They were all given the opportunity to make a 999 call. They were a credit to the school!

Up,up and away!

The Falcons and Voyagers have started a new Design and Technology topic this term. Linked to the RAF 100 celebrations, they have been investigating aircraft using the iPads, painting some of their favourites and researching form and materials. they then took on a mini challenge to design and make a paper aeroplane using just an A4 piece of paper which would travel furthest from a given point. They experimented with size and shape and enjoyed trying out different ideas.

On a VERY blustery Friday, they challenged each other to flight duels! They are looking forward to the next stage in the project...watch this space! 

Mr Wright's PE Lesson

At the recent Summer Fete, Ollie Wright won the chance to plan and teach his own lesson!  

He took great care to split our class - plus the Year 5's - into groups and then gave each group an activity; rounders, football, cricket and dodgeball.  Both he and Owen watched over two of the activities and made sure that there was fair play - and he delegated his teaching assistant (me!) to have another activity!

It was  a fab morning and all of the children enjoyed taking part - well done Mr. Wright!

Unwinding

We had a lovely morning at Forest School on Friday.  After a few weeks of assessments and concert practices, it was just what the doctor ordered!  It was a chance for the children to get outdoors, be free, relax, come together and be children.  We played games and they were able to get creative and teach each other new skills - such as lighting fires.  We all came together around the fire for chimichangas (very popular!!) and were able to chat and laugh together.  A perfect end to the week!
