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

This Week's Work!
(Week Beginning 29.6.20)

Ok Peeps - Here's your next lot of work to get stuck into! Nothing to say that isn't already on the slides, apart from to remember to look on Reading Eggspress for your skills work.

Have fun and keep taking care,

Missy K xx

Thank you yet again for all of your FANTASTIC work!! 

This week there are some fantastic responses to The Never Ending Tunnel writing task - all very different and all very well written. Take the time to have a look at one another's and you'll see what I mean. The tag lines for our local area are very inspired and I'm glad you could all prove you knew your stuff when it came to plant survival. Last but not least, the baking - wow! Converting those measures was a difficult task but I knew the lure of a freshly baked muffin would keep you going - even with the (not so) 'deliberate' mistake on the recipe (tee tee!)

Forest School

Mrs Rae has put together a lovely video of our Year 6s enjoying Forest School, which explains why we feel it is so important. You can see the video here. 

Work for Week Beginning 22.6.20

Hello My Dears, I hope you are all doing ok and hanging on in there.

We've got a little treateroo or two for you this week - a bit of baking and another phenomenal video (tee tee!) The usual spelling and reading are on Reading Eggspress, plus Maths skills on Mathletics. Please send pics of your bakes, your tunnel story, your scientific evidence and your geography tag lines...quite a lot to keep you busy and out of trouble!

It's supposed to be a sunny week, so make sure you get outside and enjoy that too!

Lots of love,

Missy K xx
