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

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. 

Blenheim Palace Public Speaking

The Writing Club went to Blenheim Palace for a tour and workshop on public speaking inspired by the work of Winston Churchill. The trip was great fun and we have lots of ideas for doing our own speeches now! Our winning team will return to Blenheim to compete against other schools in March. 

Seasoned Forest Schoolers

We've had a great couple of weeks so far at Forest School.  

KS2 are studying Ancient Greece in Topic at the moment so the children explored the site in the first session by searching for Greek pictures that then needed ordering into a timeline.  They could then have a go at writing their name on a tree cookie using the Greek Alphabet.  However, as seasoned Forest Schoolers, many of the children were already keen to follow their own path of learning.

Some chose to build dens, whilst others whittled spears, lit fires, made charcoal, created pencils or built pulley systems.  The mud kitchen was popular, so we added some herbs the following week and the children created Harry Potter potions!

It's been so lovely to see the children working together outdoors; exploring, playing, growing in confidence, using their imagination and persevering when things don't go as planned.

Christmas celebrations in Voyagers Class!

The children were utterly delightful when they opened their books from Mrs Fairhurst and their book lights from us. Our new recruit Mrs Lilley said it was ‘just beautiful’ to watch them!

May we take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - see you in 2019!
