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

Anyone for tennis?

After a range of warms up, we reminded each other of the ready position and how to playing forehand, before practising our backhand.  

Brass lessons

We are loving having our lessons with Mr Gray again!

Roman Soldier!

A Roman soldier came to visit our school! Falcons and Voyagers classes had an amazing day learning all about his equipment, how soldiers fought and the history of Rome. They made mosaics and finished the day with a mass battle, Britons versus Romans. Great fun!

Hi everyone, 

I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend in the sun! 

So this is the last lot of homeschooling Maths for you...yipee!! This week we are going to carry on focusing on multiplication and we will look at a written method for those calculations you can't do in your head. 

Really looking forward to seeing you all in the classroom next week!
