We will be holding an information evening on Tuesday 16th January at 6pm to which all parents/carers of Y6 children are invited.

We have provisionally booked a 4-night residential visit to the Windmill Hill near Hailsham, Sussex from Monday 15th October – Friday 19th October 2018. We currently have limited spaces available and will be open to deposits until 31st January 2018. The visit includes a full programme of activities and is similar to those we have run in the past. The group will be accompanied by teaching staff from the school and fully qualified instructors at the centre supervise each activity. Whilst the trip is not essential for curriculum purposes, it provides an excellent opportunity for children to extend their learning and to refine their personal and social skills. A meeting for parents giving detailed arrangements will be held nearer the time.
As part of our focus on promoting the love of reading, we will be visited by the Hobgoblin Theatre Company on Monday 15th January who will entertain us with an engaging performance of The Unusual Adventures of Robin Hood. It promises to be a fun, modern and amusing twist on the classic tale. The Hobgoblin Theatre Company is one of the UK's best loved touring theatre companies for schools who are committed to bringing entertaining, original theatre into schools.
On Friday 23rd February 2018, our Year 5 classes will be visiting the London Science Museum to see the Space Gallery, the Science Wonderlabs and to watch ‘A Beautiful Planet 3D’ at the Museum’s IMAX cinema.
The coach will be leaving school at 9.00am and returning to school by 3.15pm. Children will need to be in school uniform and bring a packed lunch with a water bottle.
As is tradition at Iver Village Junior School we have a party at the end of the term to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of the next.
This year, the parties will be held on the afternoon of Tuesday 19th December. Any fantastic party needs food and we would be very grateful if you could help contribute. So that we don't get too much of one type we ask you to bring specific items (the teacher will have written the items on the paper copy of the letters sent home).
We have finalised the after school clubs for next half term. They will start the Monday 8th January and will run till the last week of the half term, on Thursday 8th February (5 weeks).
Pupils will be allocated club places on a first come/first served basis, all bookings will be taken via our online forms or by calling the school reception (the school will send a text confirmation of booked places).
Please note, we reserve the right to withdraw unpaid places, only then, their places will be given to children on the waiting list for that club. Children in school after 3.15pm on these evenings without a paid place in the club will be placed in Bluebells until picked up, with parents invoiced accordingly.

With the success of last year’s children’s art gallery, we are thrilled to announce that it’s back this year with a very wintery theme!
The children have spent some of their art lessons learning about different styles of work and produced some fantastic display pieces which are too good to keep to ourselves. We will be displaying these this Friday night at the PJs and Hot Chocolate evening and again next week, on Tuesday 5th December and Wednesday 6th December, in our school library from 3.15pm each night and before the Lower School Productions.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Miss Lainsbury in our school reception.
