Welcome to Voyager Class!
It has been wonderful to welcome our new Year 5 pupils alongside Sir Elton and Big Eye Bob (pictured above.) We are really looking forward to an exciting year together...
Our lovely Voyagers receive many visitors during their school day. In the morning learning for Year 5 takes place alongside some Year 4 children while the Year 6s are taught by Miss Burn in a separate room. In the afternoon Years 5 and 6 learn together. The atmosphere in both rooms is friendly and focussed, we help one another on our learning journey and do our very best to adopt a positive attitude, believing that mistakes help us learn.
Please find the attached class letter and timetable which outline our routines and expectations. We believe strongly in partnership between home and school because children are happier and learn best in this way, so please do get in touch if anything is unclear, or if any issues arise - we will always do our best to help.
With warmest wishes,
Sophie Kerr, Julia Burn, Jane Kearvell, Lyn Bostock and Rachel Deegan

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...
...to all our lovely Voyagers and their families! Thank you so much for all your kind gifts - these are never expected and it's always so touching.
We hope you all have a cosy, relaxing break over the next two weeks and we look forward to seeing you all in January 2020!
With love and best wishes,
Miss Kerr and Miss Kearvell xxx
When Sasha Got Swept Up the Chimney
What a fantastic production this was! Large numbers of children took a major part and we ended up with a really funny, heart-warming entertainment. Well done to all the children, the staff (all those props!) and especially Miss Burn for leading it all.
Hockey festival at Cokethorpe
Ten girls had a great afternoon at Cokethorpe. We played four hockey matches with huge enthusiasm. The girls' hockey skills really improved, we had great fun and it was all topped off by a Christmas tea. Thank you Cokethorpe!
Blenheim Palace Tour
Our Year 5 and 6 children enjoyed a tour of Blenheim Palace focused on the life and work of Sir Winston Churchill, followed by a workshop on making speeches like Sir Winston. Is a future Prime Minister in our school, perhaps?
On Wednesday, Y5 and 6 went to Burford Secondary School for a hockey tournament. Each and everyone of them tried so hard and behaved impeccably: I couldn't have been more proud of them. They represented our school in the best possible way and 'shone' throughout the afternoon. Their sportsmanship and level of commitment was second to none.
Well done Year 5 and 6! Mrs M x
