What a production! Congratulations to our Year 6s who performed their take on the Cinderella story this week, wowing the audience with not only their singing voices, their wit and their acting talents too! The show received rave reviews from everyone who attended and all agree it’s a shame that Wednesday's performance was the last one!
Thank you to all the Year 5s who came to support our Year 6s with their fantastic singing voices.
Yesterday, our Year 4 Reading Gladiators competed against other schools in the local area by performing a 10 minute presentation on a book of their choice from the Reading Gladiators programme and took part in a book quiz. All of the schools involved did an amazing job with their performances but there was only one winner...
IT WAS US!
This week, some of our budding scientists from Years 5 and 6 went on a Science Trip to the Big Bang Science Conference in Aston Clinton where they attended three workshops based on Sound, Fuelling Rockets and Insects. The 'Rocket Fuelling' involved designing a KNex cage to carry a 1.5 litre bottle which was then filled with air (its fuel) and racing them across the room. At the Insects workshop, they looked at the properties of insects, how bees support farmers and the pupils even held cockroaches! For the Sound workshop, they thought about pitch and volume and saw sound using a Rubens Tube filled with camping gas which was then set alight. At the end of the day, the pupils attended the STEM Fair where they got to go around all the different stalls learning a whole load of things including shapes, recycling, blood pressure, water and circuits!
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?
