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 is 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,
Sophie Kerr, Julia Burn, Jane Kearvell, Lyn Bostock and Rachel Deegan
Up,up and away!
The Falcons and Voyagers have started a new Design and Technology topic this term. Linked to the RAF 100 celebrations, they have been investigating aircraft using the iPads, painting some of their favourites and researching form and materials. they then took on a mini challenge to design and make a paper aeroplane using just an A4 piece of paper which would travel furthest from a given point. They experimented with size and shape and enjoyed trying out different ideas.
On a VERY blustery Friday, they challenged each other to flight duels! They are looking forward to the next stage in the project...watch this space!
Mr Wright's PE Lesson
At the recent Summer Fete, Ollie Wright won the chance to plan and teach his own lesson!
He took great care to split our class - plus the Year 5's - into groups and then gave each group an activity; rounders, football, cricket and dodgeball. Both he and Owen watched over two of the activities and made sure that there was fair play - and he delegated his teaching assistant (me!) to have another activity!
It was a fab morning and all of the children enjoyed taking part - well done Mr. Wright!
We had a lovely morning at Forest School on Friday. After a few weeks of assessments and concert practices, it was just what the doctor ordered! It was a chance for the children to get outdoors, be free, relax, come together and be children. We played games and they were able to get creative and teach each other new skills - such as lighting fires. We all came together around the fire for chimichangas (very popular!!) and were able to chat and laugh together. A perfect end to the week!
Royal International Air Tattoo
All of Years 3 to 6 had a great day at the Air Tattoo. We watched aerobatic displays from around the world and explored planes new and old.
