Meet Our Mighty Falcons...

Hello and welcome to the Y5/6 Falcons family! We are very proud of the warm atmosphere we have in class and our new recruits fit right in - we are very pleased to be in the company of such a positive, friendly, upbeat group of children and predict a wonderful year ahead!

All the adults in Falcons work very hard to enable the children to be the very best they can possibly be - both academically and in terms of their wellbeing.  Mrs Bostock's expertise and knowledge is indispensable to us all, and we are joined by Mrs Edmunds this year - a welcome addition with her wealth of skills! We also have Mrs Fairhurst, Mrs Rae and Ms Paradiso contributing to give the children a rounded and interesting curriculum each week.

Good communication and mutual support between home and school is at the heart of our practice in Falcons and valued highly. Parents, your children come first, so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, no matter how trivial these may seem - we are here to help and keep everyone as happy as we can!

With warmest wishes,

Mrs Cartwright

Swimming Gala

It was another successful sporting event for Brize; the girls placed second and we came third (only a point in it) overall.

Some of the children admitted they hadn’t been swimming since the start of covid and they were a little nervous, so we were blown away at their performance today.  They placed in the top 3 in most races with a few actual 1st places in there.  They were an absolute credit to the school and we were incredibly proud of them all; well done!

Tag Rugby Tournament 

We had a great afternoon at Burford School, competing in the partnership tag rugby tournament.

After only 4 tag rugby sessions, the children played as a real team; there was some excellent defensive play stopping the other teams from scoring a try. Every child was involved in taking tags for the team.  We had speed, dodging and some awesome plays that resulted in many many try’s being scored for Brize; well done!

A fantastic afternoon led by the Burford sports leaders, with some great rugby played.

British Museum

The Voyagers and Falcons had a great time at the British Museum. We saw lots of things connected with our Greek topic, as well as Assyrian statues, Egyptian mummies and much more. Thank you very much to the staff and parents who enabled the trip to go ahead. 

Kids being kids

The Falcons have had a great couple of weeks outdoors; trying out new things, learning new skills, building on learned skills, working together and having the opportunity to take a step back and be kids!

Tie dye has been very popular and, after experimenting with flags last week, we used t-shirts, socks and even a face mask this week!  The children tried various methods - including making up their own!!

Several children were keen to do pebble painting so the paint pens were out; the children are given ideas to inspire them but are encouraged to step outside the box and do their own thing.  It’s just lovely to see them sitting and chatting and feeding off each other’s creativity.

The pond has been popular; we aren’t pond dipping at the moment as we have a lot of frogs spawn; however, we have discovered that by sitting on the deck and quietly talking - the frogs come up to the surface for the children to see.

Our weekly campfire snacks have been chosen by the group and, so far, we have had pancakes, waffles and quesadillas 😋

Indoor Athletics - finals!

Congratulations to our Y5/6 indoor athletics team! Having won the Burford Partnership event last month, they worked very well together and had some excellent results at the West Oxfordshire final. We didn't win but that's not the point: well done everyone.
