Year 5 celebrated their new topic with 'Greek Day' yesterday which was a huge success. They started their journey to Ancient Greece by partaking in some of the popular Greek arts. They made beautiful masks, which they then wore to present their Greek myth theatre. After that, they were hungry for a snack, so everyone tried some Greek delicacies including pita bread, tzatziki, feta cheese and yogurt. They ended the day finishing their art projects - Kipling class made Greek Pots and Morpurgo class made Greek Lyres.
The year group had such a wonderful time, thank you to the wonderful Miss Ghedia and Miss Naulls for organising such a wonderful day!
A huge well done to everyone in Lower School who took part in this year's production! This year, the performance was called 'The Inn Crowd' which told the story of a group of disgruntled animals in a stable watching the people of Bethlehem celebrate Census Day - Merry Census! They were up in arms and paws when they found out that their owner had let the last little square of space in the barn to a pregnant lady... This is starting to sound familiar...
Well done to the Year 4s who performed their roles beautifully and thank you to the Year 3s for helping with the singing!
At Iver Village Junior School we want every child to achieve their potential academically but also to grow up to be well rounded individuals and upstanding citizens. One way we try to do this is by providing lots of clubs after school to encourage our children to find their own interests and talents. We want them to be confident, self-assured, motivated and eager to learn new things.
Article 29: Your right to become the best you can be. Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.
Talk time: What are your strengths at school? What do you enjoy doing at school? What clubs do you go to? Is there anything at school you would like to get better at? How can we help you do this? Talk to your teacher!
On Monday, IVJS competed in a netball tournament held at Stoke Poges Primary School. There were five other schools competing in this tournament from all over Bucks. IVJS played against Stoke Poges drawing 2-2 and then lost to St Peters 4-2 in their second group game. After those games IVJS competed in a third place play off against Butlers Court, who were tough opponents. IVJS battled away but ended up losing 3-0 so finished fourth out of six schools. Not bad for our first go at it! Well done to all nine children who played in the freezing cold and thank you to Mrs Fowler for her help with transport and support!
We would like to thank all of the Families who attended our first Maths Games night on Friday 23rd November 2018 - it was a huge success! During the evening, there were a selection of traditional and maths based games which were enjoyed by the adults and children alike. Refreshments of tea, coffee and hot chocolate were laid on to ensure that it felt just like a cosy family time! All of the food was made here, buy our lovely pupils from the vegetables we have grown as part of our healthy eating initiative.
Last night, Mr Hawkes and our Senior Leadership Team were invited to a Sports Awards Evening as IVJS were nominated for The Sports Primary School of the Year 2018!
There were 120 nominations from Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes and we were ranked in the top 3! Although we didn’t win first place, being nominated for such a prestigious accolade is an incredible achievement so we would like to thank Mr Hawkes for all his hard work throughout the school year, every year making us not only one of the best schools in terms of sports, but also one of the most fun to be in!
This week, all IVJS students took part in Interhouse Benchball! After a full on day in which each class participated for 30 minutes, contributing to an overall total. In the end, it was a draw between Shepperton and Ealing for third place and Elstree and Pinewood for first place! What a tight contest! Year 6 will be competing again today to see if we can get an overall winner! Well done to all who participated!
