Welcome to Voyagers Class

Class Teacher: Mr Gilbertson
 
 
Welcome to Voyagers class. Our daily learning includes English, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar), reading and mathematics.  Throughout the year we also study history, geography, RE, science, PSHE, French, music, PE, art and design, design and technology and computing.  
 
Reading
 
We have a wide range of books in the classroom for children to choose from and dedicate time to independent reading as well as enjoying our class read regularly throughout the week. We encourage a passion for reading and this can be supported at home by listening to your child read as well as discussing books that interest them. 
 
Writing
 
Cursive writing is expected and we have high expectations of presentation across all subjects. Everything that your child will need for their work is provided by us.
 
Spellings
 
Spellings will be set as part of your child's homework so that they can prepare for their weekly spelling test. It is really important that children also take the time to check the meanings of any unknown words as well as how to spell them.
 
Maths
 
Please encourage and support your child to practice and recall their times tables up to 12x12. They can practice these on Times Tables Rockstars so that they are as ready as possible for our weekly test.
 
Home Learning
 
Homework is set every Friday and will typically include spellings alongside a maths and grammar activity. 
 
Our topic web can be found below with details of all our learning areas. This will be updated each term.
