KEY WORKER SCHOOL MOMENTS WE ARE PARTICULARLY PROUD OF!
Valley's Positivity Rock Line
Today we all observed the minute silence to remember key workers and carers who had been poorly or lost their lives. We ended with a clap for our key workers. We then thought about our rainbows and shared our hopes and dreams for after this pandemic. We talked about seeing our friends again, hugging Nannas and Grandads, going to concerts, playing a netball match and watching football on the television. Well done children, immensely proud of how reflective you were.
Thank you to all our key workers!

Chair of Governors House Point Names Competition... Thank you to Miss Clark, our Chair of Governors for organising our House Point names competition. The winning names are: Amazon Rainforest (Green), Grand Canyon (Red), Great Barrier Reef (Blue) All three are natural wonders of the earth. Valley Primary teaches us to be generous and caring to the environment and so it is lovely to have chosen some landmarks that need care as our house point names. Well done to everybody who participated and entered some names, Miss Clark gave these children a certificate and small gift in assembly. Our winner was Evelyn from 3P who came up with this wonderful suggestion of names. A huge well done and thank you Evelyn!

GTXxtra Workshop.... More than just numbers! We enjoyed working with other schools in our collaborative to solve problems and further our mathematics skills
A note from Aun and Tanvi, two of our talented Year 6 mathmaticians...
We were chosen to go to a maths workshop at Greswold school. There were 10 other schools there too.
We aspired to work with children from different schools and to achieve our full potential. It was great fun working as a team and representing our school. We took part in lots of activities like finding the most complicated way to make 182 using addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
We learned not to take the easy way out! We tried our best and challenged ourselves to be the best that we can be.
