We are excited to announce that this year we will be taking part in the Royal Horticultural Society’s Big Soup Share again! The Big Soup Share is a national event which hopes to involve as many people as possible around the country in sharing delicious, nutritious soup.
Every child will be involved in making soup in class and understanding how soup can be part of a healthy, balanced diet.
We would like to invite you to share the soup with your child on Wednesday 9th October between 6:00pm and 7:00pm. We hope that this evening will be a great way to celebrate your child’s efforts in school and for you to understand our plans for a healthier Iver Village Junior School!
We will also be celebrating 2019’s Harvest Festival so would like to ask any parents/guardians who come along to bring a tin/can/dried foods along for the school to donate to the local charity, SHOC.
If you are able to join us for the Big Soup Share evening, please RSVP online or complete the form below.
If you have any questions about the event, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have completed their poems describing the Tin Forest and have used some fantastic descriptive language. In Maths, they have been using and applying the expanded method for addition
Year 4 – have been consolidating their place value knowledge by solving reasoning problems and have begun working on adding numbers with up to 4 digits in Maths. In English, they have finished writing their adventure narratives about Varjak Paw’s quest to find a dog and in Science, they have begun learning about teeth and what each type of tooth is for! In French, they have been learning how to count all the way to 100 in tens!
Year 5 – have continued learning about China and it's land use in Humanities. They have been tackling tricky trial and error problems in Maths and focusing on negative numbers. In PSHE, Year 5 have been learning about how to keep their bodies healthy while in English, the classes have been looking at different sentence openers to help them write a narrative based on The Journey.
Year 6 – have been focusing on their Humanities topic of Brazil. They have learnt about the physical geography of the country, the Amazon Rainforest, deforestation, urbanisation and what it is like to live in one of the Brazilian cities. In English, the children have started reading 'The Last Wild', by Piers Torday, which will be the basis of their writing for the next few weeks. They are starting with writing an escape story and are in the process of planning this at the moment.
This year we have chosen to be part of the Buckinghamshire Energize performance at the Wycombe Swan. This is an opportunity for children in Y4 to participate in a collaborative performance with pupils from other schools in the county that will be performed on two nights at the theatre in High Wycombe.
The children will be taught songs to sing in a choir and a dance to perform on stage. If your child would like to participate, they need to be available for performances on Thursday 19th March at 7:00 pm and Saturday 21st March at 7:00pm and be able to participate in rehearsals which will take place at other schools, as well as at the theatre between now and March.
We will only be able to take a group of 30 children from Year 4. If we have more than 30 children wishing to participate, we will draw names from a hat.
We are asking for a £25 contribution to cover the cost of this event. The cost will cover the travel to and from all rehearsals, transport for the children to both performances (5 trips in total). It will also cover the cost of the Energize club that we will run in the Spring Term to help the children prepare for the performances.
If your child would like to take part, please return the form below to reception by Monday 7th October 2019 with £25 made on the School Money System as a shop item (or cash handed in to reception). Please note this is allocated on a first come, first served basis so the first 30 payments on School Money will receive a place.
If you have any questions, please speak to Miss Rowe or Miss Booth.
Thank you to everyone who joined us today for the first Parent Coffee Morning of the school year! We had a fantastic time with our parents and a really good chat with some fantastic ideas for the school.
We combined our morning with MacMillan Cancer Research’s Biggest Ever Coffee Morning and sold some very delicious cakes to raise money for charity. A huge thank you to Mrs Witheridge and our other parents for spending the week baking some of the most incredible cupcakes to help us support Macmillan Cancer Research.
Did you know… just registering your child for Free School Meals means that your school gets extra money?
