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

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. 

Cycling success

Congratulations to the seven children who took their cycling proficiency test. They all passed! Thank you to the staff and volunteers who supported them so well. 

Lego Robotics

All our children from Year 1 to Year 6 took part in the Lego robotics challenge. They had to build their own model and use their coding skills to program it. Much fun was had by all!

Snowdon - Take 5!

Well, it was a pretty exciting trip so we thought it deserved some more photos!

We hope you are all resting this weekend and hearing about your child's amazing achievement.  It was such a lovely trip - made even better by having your wonderful children along; we were extremely proud of them all.  

Yesterday, we were lucky enough to break up the trip with another stop over at Shropshire and, this time, we had a barbecue and then the children had more time to explore the woods!  It was a fab break enroute and we are very grateful to Chris and Fiss for having us all...they have sent a message back to us to say that it was a pleasure to have the children; they were very sweet and polite and they're all welcome back anytime!!
