We had such a fantastic night on Friday with our very own Harry Potter Evening! Each person attending got to find out which house they belonged to with the incredible Sorting Hat whispering to cupcakes of all things, to reveal the houses. A special thank you to Hogwarts for the loan of the hat by the way.
We got to make a whole host of potions, made letters that love a good chew on book pages (they make great bookmarks!), drank butterbeer, played a good ol' game of Quidditch and even made our very own wands!
Now, I think I need a little more practice to make mine work...
This week, our friends at the Dog's Trust visited us to hold some workshops in school about how to behave safely around dogs, both in school and out in the community. Children were taught how to read and interpret a dog's body language so we can work out what our fluffy little friends are trying to tell us! @dogstrust
On Wednesday 21st March, our Eco Council were invited to join in with an air quality survey being carried out, for South Bucks District Council, along Iver High Street. The monitoring team from Ricardo Energy and Environment explained how the equipment worked and answered questions from our pupils. Once the data has been analysed, Cerys Williams (Senior Environmental Protection Officer) at South Bucks District Council will return to IVJS to explain the results to us. Our pupils were commended by Ricardo E&E on the depth of their questioning – well done everyone!
What a blast today was! We celebrated World Book Day today here at The Iver Village Junior School and you should have seen our assembly! We have spent the day in our own fairy tale as we have spent time with many cats in hats, Alice dropped by on her way back to Wonderland and Willy Wonka entertained everyone with his stories of golden tickets, all under the watchful eye of Superman, ahem, I mean Clark Kent.
Each child received a free book to help really get them excited about reading, what did your child bring home?
