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
Two of our boys, Zach and Fin, were chosen for a Gifted and Talented writing workshop at Magdalen College School, Oxford, held over three days. It included working with the author Caroline Lawrence (author of the fantastic Roman Mysteries books) and gaining inspiration from the Oxford Museum of the History of Science.
On Wednesday 16th March, we took a team of Year 5 and 6 children to the partnership tag rugby tournament at Buford School.
The children were brilliant; immediately working as a team and playing to each others strengths. Passing was great - as was tagging - and we had some VERY speedy players that managed to swerve and dodge past the other teams with ease. At the end of the tournament, nearly all of the children on the team had scored at least one try.
We won 5 matches, drew one and lost one in some very tough games. The children were a credit to the school and thoroughly deserved their win; well done!
The next round of the tag rugby will be on Wednesday 20th April at Witney Rugby Club 3.30 - 5pm.
Year 5 and 6 Netball Tournament
After a bit of a slow start, our netball squad pulled together to come joint third in the partnership netball tournament. The children were fantastic and played many games back to back with end to end excitement. After our initial loss, we went on to win 4 of our games with score lines of 7-6 and 7-4; it was VERY exciting and we were immensely proud of their team spirit and sportsmanship. Well done!!
Year 6 enjoyed a morning at Witney Hospital learning accident prevention and first aid, as part of the Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools. If anything goes wrong, we know who to call!
Oxford Playhouse Aladdin
The whole school visited Aladdin at the Oxford Playhouse and our very own Abanazar was invited on stage.
