Welcome to Voyager Class!

It has been wonderful to welcome our new Year 5 pupils alongside Sir Elton and Big Eye Bob (pictured above.) We are really looking forward to an exciting year together...

Our lovely Voyagers receive many visitors during their school day. In the morning learning for Year 5 takes place alongside some Year 4 children while the Year 6s are taught by Miss Burn in a separate room. In the afternoon Years 5 and 6 learn together. The atmosphere in both rooms are friendly and focussed, we help one another on our learning journey and do our very best to adopt a positive attitude, believing that mistakes help us learn.

Please find the attached class letter and timetable which outline our routines and expectations. We believe strongly in partnership between home and school because children are happier and learn best in this way, so please do get in touch if anything is unclear, or if any issues arise - we will always do our best to help.

With warmest wishes,

Julia Burn, Sophie Kerr, Jane Kearvell, Lyn Bostock and Rachel Deegan

DT Days...

We’ve had a wonderful couple of days experimenting, designing and making in KS2! Our project began with extensive research into Anglo-Saxon art and culture, focussing in on decorative pattern, and the hidden meanings. The children were sent outside to forage for materials, so they could make their own natural dyes Anglo-Saxon style. Embroidery stitches were practised in earnest, with help from some very kind (and patient) parents and grandparents (many thanks to you all)! These experiences created knowledge and influences that then enabled everyone to design their own patterns ready to embroider next term...watch this space!

Roots to Food - Y5/6

Brilliant team work to produce yummy chilli with chocolate!

Defending Wessex

The whole of KS2 ventured out to Oxenwood today to help King Alfred, the King of Wessex, defend his kingdom against Guthrum the Dane. After becoming oath sworn warriors, and training with the Fyrd (army), torcs needed to be made before battle with the great heathen army. Needless to say, we had the most amazing day learning outdoors with fantastic, knowledgable instructors. I expect everyone will sleep well tonight!!

YOUNG CITIZENS

On Thursday 12th September the Year 6 children boarded a coach set for the Young Citizens course in oxford. They met a range of professionals who instructed them about safety in 6 different scenarios such as in and around water, near railways, around the home and on the internet. The children showed their knowledge and common sense and all had the opportunity to make a real 999 call. They thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities on offer and leaned to work more closely in groups.

Ready for Year 6!

With smiles on their faces, our new Year 6 recruits are ready for action! We are all looking forward to new challenges, new successes and new adventures!
