Just like Voyager itself, our class LOVES to explore our learning, in all areas of the curriculum.
Just before half term Year 6 had an exciting task - to try and become Head boy or Head girl. After several days of working as teams by creating posters, slideshows, badges etc the nominees had to stand in front of the WHOLE of Key Stage 2 and present themselves.
The two who were chosen from Voyager class were: Aiden and Abbie. They have already planned and organised various clubs for the children. Well done to everyone who went for it; they all did an amazing job!
In Voyager class, we loved learning about WW2. As a class, we re-created Hitler's invasion of Europe in 1939 by becoming the Army and 'invading' each country.
We went to Chislehurst Caves to see where people in Britain escaped during the Blitz.
In Literacy we looked at a very famous story called 'Boy in the striped pyjamas'.
As a class we looked at the quote 'a story of innocence in a world of ignorance' and discussed as a class what we felt this meant. We produced some fantastic writing during this time and worked collaboratively to create pictures of what we thought Bruno's father looked like. Here is what we came up with:
Year 6 had the fun task today of listening to and being part of the Rock Steady band. Some children were lucky enough to have a go at the instruments! Together, through excellent collaboration, they formed a band and played altogether while the rest of Year 6 sang along. What a fantastic experience!
In Maths we used our bodies to make acute, obtuse and reflex angles.
We know that Acute angles are angles smaller than 90 degrees, Obtuse angles are between 90 and 180 degrees and reflex angles are larger than 180 degrees.
Voyager class loved learning about Autism as well as other learning difficulties. Children in Voyager created their own 'Autism ribbons', designed using bright colours and jigsaw pieces to show how people with Autism view people - pieces of a jigsaw which are hard to read.

Literacy - Wonder
Voyager class have started reading a new book called 'Wonder'. It is about a boy who has a disfigurement and how he shows resilience despite this. Life in August's perspective is sometimes hard but what about his life from other people's?...
