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
Year 3/4 tennis tournament
Well done to everyone who took part in our tennis tournament at Carterton Community College. Fantastic effort and enthusiasm all round!
RAF Falcons Trip
On Friday 5th May, Year 5 and 6 took a trip to the RAF base to watch the Falcons. Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, the Falcons were unable to parachute down, although I think watching the C-17 fly over, exploring inside the chinook, meeting and receiving utographs from the Falcons and learning how they pack their parachutes more than made up for it! The beautiful weather and ice-cream probably helped too!
Year 4 Languages Day
All of the Year 4 children enjoyed a day out at Buford Secondary School on Thursday 27th April.
They experienced a wide range of languages (French, Spanish, German and Japanese) and activities.
The children were amazing and we are very proud of how they conducted themselves and interacted with new children and teachers!
Fab first Forest School session with Class 4
We had every type of weather this afternoon; sun, rain, hail and even some snow!!
The children embraced their time out at Forest School; they built dens, went pond dipping, dug holes, started fires, sawed tree cookies, did some natural weaving, made different Elder creations, learned to lash, toasted marshmallows and attempted to put up a hammock!! There was so much teamwork, co-operation, discovery and perseverance naturally happening - it was lovely to see!
Same again next week!!
Visit from Robert Courts MP
Our new MP, Robert Courts, came to school on 6th April to meet our Key Stage 2 children and explain who he is, what he does, and how they too can become an MP or even Prime Minister one day. He answered all their questions and ended with a photo with our school council (who he described as the equivalent of Parliament).
