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

Forest School in the Snow

We've had a great few weeks outdoors with the Year 5's.

The children wanted to make swords, so before we went about doing this, we practised square lashing using strawberry laces; the incentive was that if they achieved it, they could eat it!  The following weeks, several swords were made!!

Many children have enjoyed digging and creating channels for water to flow.  Others have been working together to put up dens and create pulley systems and zip lines.

The cold and the snow has not put the children off, and we always come together around the fire for a hot snack and a warm drink.

Ashmolean Trip

Years 3 to 6 had a fantastic day at the Ashmolean Museum learning all about the Ancient Greeks. Thank you to Miss Kerr for organising the trip. 

Sheldonian Concert

Years 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Oxfordshire Schools Concert. They heard the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra playing a range of pieces including classical favourites such as Elgar's Nimrod and songs from films such as The Greatest Showman and How to Train Your Dragon. They were introduced to the performers and their instruments and several left wanting to learn something new. 

Archaeologists of the future...

Our Falcons/Voyagers gang had a great time making discoveries about Ancient Greece today! Artefacts were unearthed, lands were found and dates were chronologically organised - we even found time for some art history. We’re now all super excited and ready for next week’s trip to the Ashmolean!

Y5 indoor athletics

Well done everyone in Year 5 for having a go, doing your best and showing great sportsmanship. We are proud of you all.
