Welcome to Voyager Class!

Hello and welcome to the Voyagers' Home Page! We have lots of lovely Year 4 and 5 children in our class this year. The wonderful Mrs Williams, Mrs Edmunds and Mrs Mulcahy support us in class.

I am a firm believer in hard work and putting 100% effort into each and every task. If your child comes home and tells you that 'the work is tricky or difficult,' please don't panic; it is meant to be challenging so that they have the opportunity to build on previous knowledge and develop new skills. I do not give my students work that they can access too easily as this will slow their progress and limit their capabilities. Learning is meant to be a whole of host of things- 'easy' is not one of them.

I am a huge fan of Prof Carol Dweck and her work on teaching children to have 'growth mindsets.' Over the next few weeks, I am hoping you will begin to hear your child say phrases such as, "I can't do it... yet," or "I have made a fantastic mistake that I can learn from." Promoting a growth mindset within the school and home reassures children that it is 'ok' to get things wrong. This in turn will help them to take more risks with their learning and feel less intimated by challenge.

If there is anything you would like to discuss with me about your child's wellbeing or education, my door is always open. Please make an appointment to see me after school so that we can chat in-depth. I look forward to the year ahead and working in close partnership. You are the experts on your child and I would really value your input or any suggestions you may have.

Thank you, Mrs Kerry Mills

Hello Year 4,

Take care, Miss Reynolds 

W.B. 18/01/21 Year 4 Maths

Hello Year 4!

Here is your maths planning for the week ahead- just follow the PowerPoint slides and they will explain what you need to do and when. I was so impressed with you all during our meeting on Teams last Friday; you are making so much progress with your work on fractions. Don't forget to keep it up this week. 

Hmmmm that reminds me. During our meeting, we also agreed that mums and dads were going to do a 'bedroom inspection' first thing on Monday morning. And... if your rooms were not tidy, you were going to be put on latrine duty for a month; just like the Roman soldiers were if their weapons weren't clean! Hehehehehe! :)   

Any problems with the maths, send me an email and I will do my best to help. (And before you ask, I'm not helping anyone to tidy their rooms!)

Have a super week. 

Big hugs,

Monday's Comprehension for Y5 and Y6

A new week and a new focus - a very interesting read in fact! There is also a note taking task to set you up for this week's writing - remember to look up any words you don't know and make a note of them - they may come in very handy and help you write some fantastic sentences.

Bonam fortunam!
