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
Condover Day 1
Well we're here! After an easy journey, we had our packed lunch by Mrs Rae's friend's lake. We arrived at Condover at 2.00, had a guided tour and barely had time to open our bags before our first activity. Some of us did buggy building, some zip wiring and others the climbing wall. Then it was straight to tea. At the time of writing we're just starting our film night and I just heard Luca say, "I love Condover!"
There’s nothing like spending a bit of time making waffles for your school family, thank you Year 5 (and our special guest CC) for such a lovely morning. Have a great half term!
Teachers of the future....
This term, Year 6 have had the opportunity to plan and deliver their own PE lesson, either for gym or cricket. Their professionalism and knowledge has been phenomenal, although every one of them said at some point that teaching was far harder than they thought it would be! Without exception, the children have shown themselves to be organised, respectful and supportive - delivering fun, pacy, inclusive lessons that everyone enjoyed. Even the Falcons dropped by for a look!
What fantastic sportsmanship! Our swimming team were exemplary in their support for each other, whether they won or not. They were polite and, of course, gave their races everything they had. We came fourth of eight teams (missing out on third place by one point!) and won an impressive six individual certificates. Well done to everyone.
EASTER SCHOOL FUN!
The Year 6 children have just completed 3 egg- citing mornings of Easter School where they used mathematical, ICT, language and drama skills -not to mention collaboration and patience! They worked in groups and were tasked to design their very own theme parks. They had to consider budgets and planning, advertising and pricing. They have produced some fabulous theme park posters which are on display just outside the classroom. The 3 days culminated in the production of a short TV advert competition. We enjoyed a lovely lunch (cooked by Mrs Bostock) followed by an Easter egg hunt, which proved very tricky for some, although Harriet obviously has a direct line to the Easter Bunny-she found her eggs in record time! They all worked incredibly hard and learned a few lessons in diplomacy along the way! Well done to all and a Happy Easter!
