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

Active Literacy

We had fun getting some 'active time' into our Literacy lesson last week.  Brushing up on our verbs, nouns, verbs and adjectives gave us the perfect opportunity to burn off some energy in the playground - as well as learn!

Cokethorpe Cross Country

24 of our tough runners took part in a hugely long cross country event at Cokethorpe, rewarded with hot chocolate and doughnuts at the end. Well done everyone. 

Children In Need 2017

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for your support with Children in Need this year. We managed to raise £152, which is amazing! We also managed to fill Pudsey with all of the coins.

It lovely it was to see the children dressed in their spotty costumes. Lauren in Curie class won the KS2 prize and Ruby in Kennedy class won the KS1 prize. 

Thank you again for your donations, it all goes to a great cause!!

Hampton Court for Hawking, Curie and Tu-Tu

Here are the pictures from our fabulous Hampton Court trip! Apologies for the quality of some, the lighting was a little dim and the technology a little lacking! Included are some pictures of the place itself, taken by the children.

We all had a fantastic day, and thoroughly recommend Hampton Court for a family day out.

Cross Country

Our damp but determined team did an amazing job in our first cross country tournament with the new team. Thank you to Mrs Keeble for training the children, and well done to everyone for your toughness - 1.5km for the younger children and 2km for the older ones.
