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, Mrs Hunter 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,

Miss Kerr

We the Curious

What a fantastic day we had in Bristol at We the Curious! We zoomed off into space in the planetarium, created our own stop motion animations, made giant bubbles, tested parachutes, explored virtual reality and made music - all topped off with a trip to the gift shop of course! We would like to say a big thank you to all of the children for their enthusiasm, excitement and delightful behaviour. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Forces fun

We've been learning all about forces for the last few weeks and today our focus was on air resistance. We split into pairs and small groups to investigate "which material makes the best parachute?" And "what size paper makes the best parachute?" The children had lots of fun testing out their parachutes today - I think a big part of that came from being allowed to stand on the benches! 

Y5 Indoor Athletics

Another great partnership sporting event at Burford School. Well done to all our amazing Year 5s.

IMPS

On Thursday 18th January, Years 5 and 6 went on a trip to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford to learn all about keeping safe. The children learned how to give CPR, use a defibrillator and put someone in the recovery position, so if you have an emergency - you know who to call! 

Christingles

Thank you to Mrs Bostock and St John's Church: all of our Year 4, 5 and 6 children made a Christingle in RE the first week after the Christmas holidays. They were able to learn all about this tradition.
