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

WB 22nd February

Dear Voyagers,

I hope you had a fabulous half term!  Refreshed and ready to go?  Let's get cracking.  Here are your plans for this week.  Remember to keep an eye out for your Teams invitations.  

Miss Reynolds

English WB 22.2.21

So it's back to the grindstone after a week off Folks! And what better way to start than having a little think about time travel? It's what all the groovy people are doing you know.

You will notice 'Missy K's Checklist' on the attachments - this is for my writing group. If you are not in my writing group you are welcome to use it as well, although your adult will probably give you something different.

And remember the links work with PDF, if you use the PowerPoint option you need to access the links out of presentation mode.

IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT!!

Maths WB 22.2.21

So my dears we're embarking on decimals this week...and there are two different sets of lesson slides ('Anchor Decimals' and 'Step on Decimals'). If you are in Falcons, you should have received a Teams notification to tell you which slides you need to do and when you have your maths lesson on Wednesday. If you haven't received anything from me, please send me a message on Teams chat (not email) and I'll sort that out for you. Y5 children in Voyagers, please follow the 'Anchor Decimals' slides.

Have fun!

Welcome Back!

Hi everyone, 

I hope that you all had a lovely half term! My name is Miss Cuthbertson but you can call me Miss C for short. I am going to be your new teacher this term. I am sad that we can't all be together and get to know each other face to face but I am looking forward to meeting you all at some point this week whether that it is in school or on teams. Hopefully we will all be back together in school soon. 

See you next week, 

Miss C
