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
Fab first Forest School session with Class 4
We had every type of weather this afternoon; sun, rain, hail and even some snow!!
The children embraced their time out at Forest School; they built dens, went pond dipping, dug holes, started fires, sawed tree cookies, did some natural weaving, made different Elder creations, learned to lash, toasted marshmallows and attempted to put up a hammock!! There was so much teamwork, co-operation, discovery and perseverance naturally happening - it was lovely to see!
Same again next week!!
Visit from Robert Courts MP
Our new MP, Robert Courts, came to school on 6th April to meet our Key Stage 2 children and explain who he is, what he does, and how they too can become an MP or even Prime Minister one day. He answered all their questions and ended with a photo with our school council (who he described as the equivalent of Parliament).
Four of our Year 4 children went to Burford School for a day of Lego robotics, programming a robot to move. Great fun was had by all!
Immy, Penny and their Dad brought two four-week-old piglets into school! All the children had the chance to meet them and ask questions.
Red Nose Disco
Our school captains wanted to organise a disco to support Comic Relief. It was organised almost entirely by these four children and they did a great job with their music choices and DJing. Well done!
