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

Music Maestro Please!

What a brilliant start to the week! So much fun, smiling and laughter during our music lesson this afternoon. Only a couple of weeks in and the children have already made huge progress.  

Parents, be warned: we are considering sending the instruments home for homework. Don't worry though, my ears aren't hurting.... at all 😂 Mrs M 

Super Science!

Over the last few weeks, we have been busy learning about states of matter and exploring the properties of solids, liquids and gases. On Tuesday, we had had a go at creating our own carbonated drinks by infusing liquid with a gas. The children had a brilliant time and we all thoroughly enjoyed tasting our wonderful creations. Cheers everyone! 

Losing our marbles...

Can you guess which of the STEM tasks we completed with aplomb yesterday?!

Tasks for our final week of term...

Hello all,

This is it - the last week! What a time it's been since the end of March, sharing a memory from less socially distanced times! Here's hoping for a wonderful new start to the academic year in September.

Stay safe my lovelies!

Farewell Y6

It's all come around too soon, but last Friday we said good-bye to Y6. I think it's safe to say the theme was 'wet' - the faces, the weather and the throwing challenge...

We have had a fantastic three weeks together, creating memories to hold onto forever - there are certainly things I will never, ever forget about spending this time with you all. Thank you for being so utterly lovely to be around in these odd times - you have made it all so much easier to handle. From the bottom of our hearts Miss Kearvell and I wish you all the very, very best with the next stage of your lives.

It's been a blast!
