Thank you Voyager for your great performance at our forest fundraiser today. You should be very proud of yourselves. Not only that, you produced some fantastic work for our display and raised money by selling your Scavanger Hunt sheets - all in aid of the Woodland Trust. Well done.
We had a great walk in the woods with children identifying different types of trees and animals that live there.
Well done Voyager for a fantastic class assembly about the rainforest. You all worked really hard and put on a wonderful performance.
Thank you to all the children for your hard work this term. It has been extremely busy, but you have all contributed fantastically and thoroughly earned you half term break. We look forward to seeing you again next term!
In science this term we have been learning about plants and flowers. In these pictures the children are dissecting a flower and identifying its different parts, and observing the growth of three plants - one with light and water, one without water and one without light. We will continue to monitor the plants progress and before writing our conclusions.
In our topic this term we have been learning all about the rainforests of the world, and the challenge of conservation.
Here the children are researching the location of the rainforests and presenting their findings on the Amazon, Daintree, Valdivian and South East Asian Rainforests.
End of Term
Thank you Voyager for all your hard work this term. Its been fantastic, and we wish you all a very enjoyable Easter break. See you next term!
KS2 Maths Award
Many congratulations to Christopher for winning the KS2 Maths Award this term. A fantastic achievement and very well deserved!
The children had a great time playing number bingo in their French lesson.
Trip to We The Curious
We had a great time on our trip to We The Curious, exploring 'light and dark', as part of our science topic this term.
We explored reflection using mirrors. We wrote messages in reverse and used mirrors to decode them.
The children recreating the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen by Howard Carter and debating if the curse was real.
End of Term
A huge thank you to the children for all their hard work this term. Have a great break, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Uphill Runs the World
Today we smashed our record of laps run in 20 minuets - a massive 304, beating our previous record by 39! That represents a contribution of 50 miles by Voyager this week, to the school objective of running the world by the end of the year. Particularly impressive were Wilf, Noah and Sydney who showed great spirit and determination. However the whole class put in a huge effort. Well done!
Worker of the Week
Congratulations to Henry on being named ‘Worker of th Week’ for his excellent work on fractions this week. Well done Henry.
We had a great day learning more about Ancient Egypt. We had a visit from a special guest who taught us lots of very interesting facts, and even demonstrated how the mummification process took place - which proved to be very popular (and a bit gruesome!). We also built models of Ancient Egyptian coffins and sarcophaguses, and learned about Tutankhamen.
We all had a fantastic time at the Playhouse on Wednesday watching Horrible Histories 'Awful Egyptians'. A very enjoyable and fact filled production that has really fired the children's interest in our topic this term!
A big thank you to all the children who have worked so hard this term, and for all the support given by parents and guardians. Have a fantastic Christmas, and we look forward to seeing you again in January.
KS2 P.E Award winner!
Many congratulations to Edie on winning the KS2 P.E Award. Very well deserved indeed!
Today the children had the opportunity to present their wreath of poppies, made earlier in the week, to the school during our remembrance service. What a fantastic job they did. Well done!
Today we were learning about Roman mosaics as part of this term's topic. We all worked very hard to produce intricately patterned mosaics of our own.
This week we were very lucky to be visited by Chris Millard from Weston Athletics Club who took the class for a session on Thursday morning. The children were taught about their running technique and competed in some inter-house relays as well as short cross-country run. It was great fun and a fabulous experience!
