This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been working hard on comparing and ordering unit and non-unit fractions. In English, they have started reading a new book, The Lion and the Unicorn and other Hairy Tales, and have begun writing their own 'Just So' stories.
Year 4 – have been looking at converting measurements in Maths, they have been converting millimetres into centimetres and centimetres to kilometres! In English, they have been introduced to their new Power of Reading book, The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane.
Year 5 – have started measuring and drawing angles which has been quite challenging for year 5. In English this week, they have designed and planned a leaflet on Disneyworld. In Geography, they are learning how to use an atlas and discover the world around us.
Year 6 – have been starting their final preparations for the SATs in just a few week’s time. They have been looking at various aspects of maths and did their first 'Walking Talking Mock’ test in reading, which talks the children through how to answer specific types of question.
On Tuesday the 27th March, seven year 3’s attended a football tournament against 20 other schools across Berks and Bucks held at Cressex Astro Turf in High Wycombe. After winning all of their group games 1-0, 5-0 and 3-0, IVJS found themselves into the top group! IVJS won their first game 1-0 and drew the second 1-1 meaning they needed to win their last game by more than one goal to win the tournament. After being 2-0 up the opposition team scored a late goal meaning IVJS needed a goal in the last three minutes to ensure victory! After Oliver smashed the ball against the post, it seemed unlikely that IVJS would find the goal they needed until Liam scored twice in quick succession to win the tournament! The year 3’s that attended competed with passion, pride and where such incredible sportsman that other teams started to support them! Well done to all seven footballers and thank you to all parents who helped with lifts and supported us in the rain! Incredible IVJS at it again
