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

Friday 8th May marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day... 

On Friday 8th May people all over the UK, and in other countries of the world, will turn their thoughts and attention to the 75th anniversary of VE day. This is a very important and historical day because, back in 1945, it marked the end of World War II in Europe. I have attached a PowerPoint so that you can find out more, as well as finding a few simple activities for you to do if you would like to pay your respects to people passed by joining the celebrations.

If the activities are too simple, you could find something of your own to do...For example, you could try your hand at a bit of VE Day baking! There are some delicious recipes on the BBC site... 

VE Day recipes | BBC Good Foodwww.bbcgoodfood.com › recipes › collection › ve-day

I think I'll have a go at the tray bake and make toad in the hole for tea - if any of it works out I'll post a pic, but don't hold your breath (sigh..)

I'm looking forward to seeing anything you make or bake so please send your pictures my way!

Maths and English Summer 1 Week 3

OK, so your writing task is heading into its second week. I have attached the instructions, planning grid and criteria to save you trawling back through the website, but there are prompt sheets on the original posting so do use those - they really help you to meet the criteria. Remember to do those online lessons to make sure your writing is as good as it can possibly be. Use the SLOW writing criteria carefully and edit your work during and after!

I have set the next two chapters of the book for you to read on Reading Eggspress. We are going to be using this book for our writing next week, so make sure you know it well. If necessary, go back to the beginning again.

Spellings also on Reading Eggspress...

For Maths, you have your usual instructions attached. Everything is for Year 4 apart from the 4 screen shots on Thousandths and the Y5 instructions. I haven't posted much for Y5 as they have White Rose Lessons and Power Maths only this week, and you can download what you need from White Rose as you go (I have it ready to email if you would like me to, so just ask.)

Remember to keep those other maths skills going on the apps as well (I have set quite a few this week, but you'll see why..)

Enjoy!

Week Beginning 4th May..
Y4,5 AND 6 History...
Y5 and 6 Science...

Hello all! It's that time again...

Everything you need to do this week's History task is on the word document below. I know some of you have already completed a time line, but this is slightly different. You will need additional paper - let me know if that is an issue and I can leave some at school for you to collect. Good luck - from what I've seen these projects are coming along beautifully!

Now, Science...I have been mightily impressed by the way some of you have put your timelines together. It's really worth having a look at one another's work as some of you have set the bar very high..

...which brings me onto this week's work. The task is similar in that I would like you to create more life cycles. This time, I would like you to choose a species that is different to your own. In order to do that, you need to explain which species you are, and how you know this. I will give you an example of the mind of thing you could say if you were a member of the bird species:

A sparrow is a bird because it is a warm-blooded, egg-laying, vertebrate animal. Birds have feathers, wings, a beak, and are typically (but not always) able to fly.

Anyhoo - I would like you to pick two specific animals from two different species and create a life cycle for each of these. Again, it's up to you how you present your work, but as I said, the bar is set pretty high...

Life Cycle Projects so far...

Wonderful work peeps - such effort, thank you!

Year 6 - WB 4/5/20

Hi year 6!

I hope you are all well and keeping busy. Thanks to everyone who has sent me work over the past week, there were some very creative and imaginative new species! I’ve also enjoyed seeing all the additional things Voyagers have been up to (thanks Miss K for the photos!). Please find details of work you could be doing over the next week:

Maths:

White Rose have produced a weekly plan of sessions. Watch the video and have a go at the activities, hopefully these methods will be familiar to you but remember you can refer back to the video if you need to. You could complete one of these sessions each day and there are answers for each activity, so you can check your work. To find the sessions please follow the link. We are now on ‘Summer Term – Week 3’

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

On ‘My Maths’ you will also find a task allocated to you – hopefully you will find the above White Rose sessions helpful for this.

English:

On ‘Reading Eggspress’ you will find a comprehension activity and spelling session, alongside a history book for you to read.

As many of you will be aware, this Friday 8th May marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day. So for your writing task this week, I would like you write a newspaper report reporting on VE Day and the celebrations that took place 75 years ago. Please remember newspapers are written in the past tense and report on true events. To help you with this, I have put some links to some good resources / videos below but you may like to do some additional research of your own before you begin writing. I have also created a template you could print out and use. I look forward to receiving you reports!

Have a great week,

Mr Wise
