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
Voyagers' Climate Change Assignment...
Well done to all the peeps who completed their Climate Change assignment on time. Some wonderful work has been taking place! I'm really impressed with the efforts you have all gone to, both in terms of presentation and the content itself. You will have a new task on Monday based on this work, but for now, enjoy your weekend and maybe try some of the Earth saving suggestions you have written about..?
Please see attached Well-being journal created by Nuffield Health which you may find useful to share with your children at this time.
FABULOUS FALCONS... GO CREATE!
Hello Falcon Friends! How's the day been so far?
It is World Theatre Day today and although you cannot see a live show, that shouldn't stop you from making up your own!
Why not write a simple script or find one on line to act out? Ask a member of your family to play a character? You could even use costumes and make up -depending on what or who your characters are!
Make a mini shoe box theatre and use puppets -Google for ideas.
You could make puppets from lolly sticks, scraps of fabric over your fingers (sharpen those sewing skills!) straws, socks, paper mache...just google puppet making...the ideas are endless!
PLEASE email me and share pictures for the website... very excited to see your creations! email@example.com
Please make sure you have a break from work over the weekend! Sending warm wishes! Miss Burn
Home learning ...
Here's our pal HH learning those exception words...kicking the ball at the garden wall and shouting a letter from a spelling word one at the time... if he gets it wrong he runs around the garden .... if it's right, he moves on to the next.... if he gets through all 10 on the page, he has an ice cream....
Whereas Miss M takes a more relaxed approach to her home learning...although she can turn her hand to healthy eating too...
And our other Miss M, well she has just been churning out all sorts, including a chicken swing..!!
Miss C has been working out with Joe Wickes and baking with her Nana..
JG has made loads and loads of cakes...
Is anybody else using their own ideas to learn things differently?
Fabulous Falcons update
