A couple of weeks ago, we were asked by one of the estate agents; Hilton, King and Locke, if we would help them transform their shop window. The brief was simple: Christmas houses. With Miss Rowe’s guidance Year 4 rose to the challenge and created a combination of houses decorated for Christmas and a delicious collection of gingerbread houses. Hilton, King and Locke were so impressed by the houses, complete with HKL for sale signs, they have picked two pictures to win a prize. At school we also picked a third place winner. Well done to all who created a house or two… You can see a selection of the houses on display in the Hilton, King and Locke window over the Christmas period.
At the start of this year, none of us could have imagined what was about to happen across the world. One of the positives we have taken from this year is the sense of community and kindness that our staff and children have in abundance. Kindness is the theme to this year’s John Lewis holiday advert. At IVJS we were inspired to create our own video to spread a bit of love and kindness. This fitted in perfectly with our P4C question about kindness. This video is a combination of the thoughtful words of the children and a little bit of socially distanced fun from the staff.
IVJS is proud to present ‘Kindness’.
Here it is, the moment we have all been waiting for, the grand opening of our very own IVJS Lockdown Gallery! Take a virtual stroll around some incredible exhibits without even having to leave your seat! Thank you to our fabulous curator, Miss Rowe and to all you incredible artists out there!
It's that time of the week again! Here are the Brainiacs for this week, thank you to Miss Booth and Miss Fletcher for presenting this week's awards.
Here is Mr Hawkes with this week's Sportiac awards.
Donaldson have been busy in the kitchen this week, giving chefs around the country a run for their money! They have been planning their pizzas since Monday and have completed questionnaires about their favourite toppings, designed what their pizza will look like, have written up recipes and cooked their creations.
They look very yummy and have given Miss Rowe some ideas about different alternatives to pizza bases and toppings.
Browne Class have been in on the action too! Great job guys!
So many children and parents are sending in photos showing us what they are learning at home. We are so encouraged to see children from Year 3 through to Year 6 demonstrating such engaging ways to learn? What would you like to share with your class teacher? Send your photos via email to your class teacher...
Over the hill and far away..... it's time for us to say bye bye!
The day began with our celebration assembly, the children made a fantastic audience and well done to Jaya for receiving the IVJS Brainiac.
We completed today's learning by holding our own times table mastery league. Jake beat everyone with an amazing score of 144/144 in just under 3 minutes. Mrs Goggin and Miss Short were hot on his heels but not quite quick enough!
The sun finally decided to make an appearance which allowed the children to play outside for a while, however, they were soon back in the classroom when they were bombarded by hail stones.
Have a great and safe weekend!
After three days of joining Joe Wicks for PE we decided (or rather my aching legs did) that we would complete our own mile-athon. The children completed on average 16 laps of the playground.
Once back in the classroom the children completed their learning and Year 5 wrote some exceptional poems about abandoned places.
Then it was time to celebrate a special birthday - no not Captain Tom's.... but the lovely Ralph! The children made Ralph masks, posters and a birthday video for him.
The music journey continued and we have reached present day where the children recognised some familiar artists.
