In general, the children were brilliant! The year 3 children in particular were so well behaved and quiet. Please remember to close doors as you leave if possible. We had everyone accounted for in 3mins 25 seconds.
(Oracy - the ability to express oneself fluently and grammatically in speech)
We have had a brilliant start to the term using vocabulary Ninja and now we want to develop the children’s talk even more. During lunchtimes we are going to be encouraging the children to talk to the children on their tables about a given topic. Ellie will be sending out slides, one for each day, which we would like you to display on your IWB during lunchtimes.
If you have any questions about Oracy October please come and talk to me. I am happy to go through the oracy map after school on Monday if people need help.
A Fantastic Team
Thank you for all your hard work, the displays are looking amazing. The team at IVJS are the best!
It’s the weekend!!!!! Enjoy!!!
Pirate day was amazing! Thank you to everyone who made the day such a success, the children loved it. The year 3 children were able to do amazing parrot impersonations by the end of the day and were very proud of themselves!
I am finding it very difficult to remember how many weeks we have been back as it seems like ages, but in actual fact it is only 3! Just stop for a moment and think about what you have achieved in that time. You have made every child in your class feel welcome and happy. You have provided a safe and secure environment for the children, and started to make strong relationships with the parents. You are brilliant!
We had a look at the Humanities books this week and we were impressed at how much cross-curricular writing there already is in the books. The key thing to remember is that the books are a reflection of your expectations. Don’t forget that a photocopied sheet should only be used if it is really needed.
Covid – Please make sure you do 2 lateral flow tests a week. If you need more test kits please ask Gemma. We need to remain vigilant!
At some point next week we will have a fire drill. Please make sure you talk to your class on Monday about what to do if the fire bell rings. If you are not sure of what to do please talk to PC/JD.
Have a wonderful weekend!
