Welcome to Voyager Class!

This is the Year 5 and 6 Class, though in the mornings it is split - the Year 6 children become Falcons and are taught separately, while the Year 5s are joined by some children from Year 4. In the mornings, Years 4 and 5 are taught by Mrs Rae and Miss Kerr (teachers) and by Miss Kearvell, Mrs Deegen and Mrs Williams (teaching assistants) while Year 6 are taught by Miss Burn (teacher) and by Mrs Bostock and Mrs Deegan (teaching assistants. In the afternoon, Year 5 and 6 are taught by Miss Kerr and Miss Burn.

It has been a pleasure to welcome your child to Voyager Class; they have come back after the summer break, ready and eager to learn.  We are very much looking forward to spending the rest of the year with them.

To help you to support your child, we feel it is important that you understand our routine; every morning, we dedicate our time to Spelling, Maths and Literacy, and our afternoon timetable is currently as follows:

Monday - Thursday and Monday afternoons will vary, depending on the weather going into the winter months. Subjects will either be Science or Topic; or PE and PSHE 

Tuesday - Music/Computing and RE (Islam/Muhammad)

Wednesday - Swimming (for Y6) and Dance (for Year 5), followed by Art

Thursday - See Monday

Friday - French and DT

If you have any questions and need to talk to us at any point, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes from the Voyager Class Team

Winston Churchill Public Speaking Competition

Well done to our public speaking team, who worked so hard researching, writing and practising their speeches on the theme of deforestation. On the day they held their own splendidly amidst very talented speakers from all over the region. I was truly proud to represent Brize Norton in their company. 

Going potty...

On the last day before half term, all of the children in KS2 created their own Greek pot using a balloon, cardboard and PVA soaked paper - very traditional Ancient Greek techniques indeed! It was a lovely morning, and a welcome end to assessment week. We are looking forward to getting the paint out to finish them off in the next week or two..

Fun in the Sun

It was great to welcome the Year 6's back out to Forest School; they immediately relaxed and went off, following their own interests.

Some children chose to light fires, whereas others set to working together to build dens.  The pond was open and it was great to see the wildlife waking up and eluding the children...my goodness, frogs are quick!!  Many children enjoyed getting creative in the mud kitchen - which I just love to see - whilst others got the tools out to whittle and drill.

It was a fab first session - made even better by the amazing weather, fun and laughter!

Year 5 Music Festival

Well done to all the Year 5 children who participated in the Year 5 Music Festival at Burford. It was a really fun evening for all involved.

Sky TV

Here is our movie! The Writing Club had a fantastic experience at Sky TV! For Safer Internet Day, we produced a TV news programme about keeping safe online. The children had to work in teams to come up with ideas, write the script, select costumes and backgrounds, film and edit. It was amazing to use Sky's professional-quality equipment! (When you watch, you can click "no thanks" when it asks you to log in or register.)
