Welcome to Voyager Class!

Welcome one and all!

In Voyagers, our philosophy is simple. We strive to do our best, approaching each new challenge with fortitude and a ‘can do’ attitude.

We may find new concepts hard to begin with but, with determination and perseverance, we will get there together!

All areas of the curriculum are equally important: some subjects provide challenges and some enable us to shine. Some give us mountains to climb and the satisfaction of reaching the summit, with a glorious fist pump. Others enable us to develop skills in areas in which we are confident, permitting the well-earned glow of further success. For each of us, these challenges are different – how wonderful that we are all individual!

Whatever the challenge, we do it together. Every single member of the Voyagers class is of equal importance and value. We look after each other and applaud the successes of each individual.

We are so lucky that Miss Kearvell and Mrs Mulcahy join our team to help us on our journey. Their invaluable assistance and encouragement promotes our learning and development.

Parents, please remember that your input is invaluable and greatly appreciated. Feel free to approach any one of us whenever you have a concern or something to share. An appointment is not necessary. The door is always open!

Our class name could not be more apt – it is a vital link with our community but also represents the ability of each and every one of us to fly!

Let’s approach our time together with a positive attitude and the anticipation of that wonderful phrase: ‘Yes! I get it!’

Off we go!

Chairman's Cup

On Wednesday 25th May, a group of Year 5 and 6 children took part in the Chairman's Cup. The children worked well as a team and supported each other, which was lovely to see. They were positive and determined throughout the day and performed very well, coming third year out of six teams, narrowly missing a place in the semi-final - well done Year 5 and 6!

An afternoon with our very own visiting scientist!

On Wednesday 25th May, Dr Sanderson (mum of Liam and Owen) came in to talk to the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils about her work as a research scientist at Oxford University. She showed us a fantastic presentation to explain how she became a biologist and how she is studying chromosomes. She also brought with her a range of microscopes and slides, as well as some exciting resources for collecting, viewing and identifying plants and animals. Some of us dressed up as a scientist too! We had a fantastic afternoon and we would like to thank Dr Sanderson for visiting! Dr Sanderson is a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) ambassador for Oxfordshire and has access to a wide variety of resources. She has offered to come back in and visit other classes. Thank you Dr Sanderson!

So much happening

The children are loving coming out to Forest School.  This week, the pond was very popular; we discovered that the the frogspawn had hatched and we now have tadpoles swimming around!  Our resident frog caused much excitement with the children spotting it and then being keen to try and catch it...most of the time, it was just too quick - but it caused a lot of fun and laughter!

Many of the children are keen to use tools to make things; we had lots of tree cookies being made and designed using homemade charcoal.  Others preferred to whittle - and we did have a Harry Potter-esque wand created!  

The children played, created, worked together, persevered (when using a palm drill to create a hole!) and solved problems...phew!

More success for our rugby team!

Our tag rugby team have come fourth in the Witney area finals. This is really impressive as many of the other schools are much larger than us, and our children had little experience with the sport before. Well done everyone, and we are now automatically in the top tier at the Chairman's Cup in Oxford at the end of May.

Year 5's turn!

Year 5 came out to Forest School for their first session this week.  Once they'd had a tour and talked about how we need to look after ourselves outdoors, they all went off to different activities.  They built dens, put up a rope swing, made mud cakes in the mud kitchen, decorated themselves with 'war paint', went pond dipping (and found a frog) and made charcoal.  Many were keen to learn how to use the tools safely, and we had whittling going on to create pegs for dens as well as some tree cookies being made.

At snack, we had the traditional s'mores - which seemed to be rather popular!  In the coming weeks they would like to cook burgers and bacon sandwiches!
