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

Maths for Y5 and Y6 WB 18.1.21

Ok my dears, here's your maths, plus a reminder of some of the vocab from the working wall notes we made in school last week. As always, it looks like more than it is - you have a bit of a choice of task on some days depending on how things are going for you, so make sure you read the instructions carefully. 

For the Falcons, there will be maths meetings on Teams from 10.30 on Wednesday, so look out for your invite as the times will vary. You will need to have completed Wednesday's lesson beforehand as we will be working out what you need to do for Thursday. Please remember to have a pencil/pen and paper to hand so you can note things down.

Oh and just FYI - the video links work best if you use the PDF lesson slides. They will work using the PowerPoint option but not if it's in presentation mode.

Have fun and remember to send me a message on Teams chat if you need to.

Tomorrow's writing plan...

Dear all,

Here's the writing plan some of us etched out this afternoon. The paragraph titles are the same ones you used for your notes from the vid clip you watched today. For the writing it's now a case of putting those notes into full sentences, using your checklist to guide you (see the English slide for this week for a full explanation).

Enjoy!

Voyagers Literacy

Hello my lovelies!

Here is the Literacy (writing) planning for both Year 4 and Year 5 for the next three days. Any problems, let me know. Speak to you on either Thursday or Friday... very, very excited!

Huuugggggeeeee hugs, Mrs Mills x

Year 4 Maths

Good morning Year Four!

Here is your maths planning for the rest of the week. I know it looks like a lot but it really isn't- you just have to download what you need. There are 3 PowerPoints- one that guides you through your tasks and two that will help you with your learning. I have also included links to White Rose videos- these are brilliant and well worth a watch! If you wish to check your work, you can use the Power Maths answer book- this will help you to make sure you are on the right track. Any problems, send me an email and I will do my very best to help- or we can discuss it during our Teams meeting on Thursday or Friday. Don't worry if the PowerPoints refer to Cuisenaire rods, I know you won't have these at home. 

Big hugs, Mrs M x
