Victoria Junior School Inspiring unique, independent, respectful, and confident learners

Hello from Staff!

Hello Year 3,   

I hope you are all keeping well during this difficult time?   It’s hard to believe that it’s almost two months since we were all together at school.  I hope that you have been enjoying the home learning and that you are also using this time as an opportunity to be creative and do some things that you’ve never done before.  I wonder if any of you made a kaleidoscope or a periscope for science?  If you did, I’d love to see them when we get back to school!  Maybe you’ve got your recorder, or a guitar or keyboard at home and have done one of the Charanga courses?  I bought myself a keyboard and have been re-learning how to play the piano.  It’s been many years since I last played and I even found some of my old music books from when I was a teenager.  It’s been fun! 

Have you been enjoying the weather, too?   We have been very fortunate with the weather and spring is a really beautiful time.  I’ve been doing lots of walking and have been looking at the beautiful trees and flowers.  In fact, your science home learning this week includes an activity on drawing plant specimens – keep your drawings for me to see when we’re back at school! 

For my daily exercise, I’ve been going for a walk and have really appreciated that we are very lucky to have so many beautiful places to visit nearby. As well as enjoying my local parks, I’ve even been to Bedfont Lakes for the first time!   

It looks as if we will be back at school before the summer holidays and I can’t wait to see you again and catch up on all your news. 

In the meantime, stay safe and be happy!

Hello Elm class,


This is your favourite ever teacher with a quick note to say hello to you all and to let you know that I am missing you and the school more than you can believe.  I hope you are all keeping safe and protecting yourselves, your families and your friends.  I'm sure you'll all have some fantastic stories to tell me when we meet again soon.


It has been so nice chatting to some of you on the phone and I'll try to get in contact with all of you again very soon- especially those that I've missed out on so far. I was happy to hear that you're doing the work you've been sent and I've been lucky enough to see some of your fantastic work on Purple Mash- keep it up Elm class and show the world that we are the best class in Year 3!!


Feel free to send me an email on Purple mash with anything you'd like to talk about and i'll try my very very best to respond to them all.


My time off school has been quite unusual because I've had to come back to Ireland, where I was born, for a few weeks to look after some of my family members who are feeling ill. My 2 brothers and 2 sisters are here too so it's been really nice spending all of this time together again- just like when we were kids. We've been laughing and crying together and playing silly pranks on each other so we're behaving just like any other brothers and sisters really- even though we're all grown up now!!


I must go now to play some tricks on my younger brothers. Please keep safe, obey your adults and look after each other. I'll see you all again soon. I'm sure you can't wait.....

Hi all,

I hope you are all keeping well!


I've been trying my hand at gardening - I bought some pots and seeds and planted them a few months ago, and look what happened!

When this is all over, I am going to give them to members of my family for their birthday. Not being able to see them on their day has been strange, so it has been nice keeping them in mind while the seeds grow.


Have you grown anything? I would love to see how you have gotten on. Send photos to the office email and I will get them.


Take care everyone, and hopefully I will see you soon.

Mrs Lewis wink

Hello Willow class,


​How are you all this week?


I have enjoyed getting to know most of you through phone calls, emails and the short time that we were together.


It was a very unusual time for me to return back to school but no one could have predicted what happened.


I left school last summer after teaching Holly class (now Cherry) as I had a baby girl (who is called Callie). She is turning 9 months very soon and is crawling, standing up and knows already what she wants!


I can’t wait to share photos with you and teach you all again face to face.


I hope you all have a good week and will speak to you all soon,

Mrs Seevakreedam

Hello Year 4 and Willow class,


I hope you are all keeping well and healthy. 😊

It has been so lovely to speak to some of you on the phone and I have really enjoyed reading your emails.

Keep the funny jokes coming as they are making me laugh and are much better than mine. 😂🤣😂

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Bye for now!

Hi wonderful pupils of VJS,

I hope you are keeping well and keeping safe.

Thinking of you all,

Hi everyone! 


This is Mrs Ahmed :)  


I am missing you all very much and missing you coming into the class every morning with beautiful, big smiles on your faces. 


Like you all I am also at home staying safe with my family. Inaaya, my daughter also has home learning to do, just like you all. 


I am very proud of all the hard work you are all doing at home. I know it's not easy to stay at home but it wont be forever. Use this time to do something you have always wanted to do, but never had time. Perhaps dancing or singing.


I have been creating posters with Inaaya to brighten up my window and thank everyone who is working hard in this difficult time. As you all know my art skills arn't the best but I'll share it with you :) 


Please take care of yourself and I hope to see you soon. 


Lots of love


Mrs Ahmed 

Hello Victoria Junior School!


Mrs Wolczynski here.  Just a quick message to say that I am thinking of you all. 


It is very strange not being at school with you all, and I really miss seeing all of your smiling faces coming through the gates each morning and saying, "Good morning!" to you all.


I am missing your happy faces walking past my office on your way to assembly and I am missing your proud faces when you come to show Mr Lee and I your amazing work.


Willow Class - I so miss your hardworking faces during our Writing lessons and our chats about your lives.


I am so incredibly proud of working at our school with you all and with the dedicated and caring staff we have, and, when this strange time is over, look forward to seeing your excited and friendly faces when we all see each other again.  I know all the staff are thinking about you.


I will write again soon,


Mrs W smiley



Hello from Doctor Who - Jodie Whittaker as The Thirteenth Doctor | Cornavirus Message (2020)

Miss Rendell says hello, stay safe and enjoy this video from Doctor Who!

To all the children at VJS,


I am thinking of you all, hoping you are safe, well and being with loved ones at this time when we need to be safe at home.


I am at home with my children and yes they too have on-line learning to do, in between playing in the garden. I am doing house work and tidying the garden, so we can do some out door learning.

We are going to plant some vegetable and flower seeds. I hope they grow.


Can’t wait to see you all and have visits from the current year 6.




Mrs Browne xx



Even before this pandemic, I was thinking of you all lots.


I am thinking of you even more so now and I hope you are all as OK as you can be.


I am looking forward to popping in for a visit hopefully before too long.


Miss Britton 

Hello Ash Class, 


I just wanted you all to know how much I am missing you. I think about you every single day and I can't wait to hear all your news when we are reunited! 


I hope you are all having the chance to spend quality time with your family, having lots of fun and completing the home learning packs. 


Keep checking the website for updates and new learning...


Take care of yourselves and your family, 


Always in my thoughts, 


Mrs Principe :-) 

Hello from Florence Nightingale!

Our NHS staff are doing an amazing job.
Did you know that some of our parents at school are doctors, nurses and carers?

Find out about Florence Nightingale and how the NHS started. If you need some inspiration, could you do a project on this perhaps and email it to the school office? I would love to see your work! Could you send a postcard of kindness (if it is safe for you to do so!) to someone who is doing a really good job at helping us all to stay safe? I'm going to send a postcard to my Auntie Gill who is a nurse in Cornwall and working long shifts at the moment to look after people.

Thinking of you all,

Mrs Wolczynski

Hello everyone!


I hope you are all safe and well and enjoying spending time at home with your loved ones.


I am looking forward to spending some of this time at home doing all the things I love but do not always have time for - colouring, painting, cooking, baking and spending quality time with my family. I also hope to challenge myself to try new things and learn some new skills. 


The other day, I saw some photographs online where people had created a very interesting form of art - it is called 'laundry art'! I had never seen this before but really wanted to try it out myself, so this evening I did. It's very simple because the only resources you need is what we all have at home - clothes - and the space you create the art on is the floor! Take a look at the photos of my creations below...


I would like to challenge you to create some 'laundry art' of your own - you can find pictures to copy on the internet, recreate a photograph or simply use your imagination. HAVE FUN!


I would love to see your photos! If you would like to, please send them to with the title LAUNDRY ART!


Mrs Parker :-)




Laurel Class - I am missing you all!  It feels very strange not coming in and seeing your faces each day. 


I hope you are keeping up with some home learning as and when you can. Remember - it is there to recap and refresh your knowledge and skills, so don't let it stress you out! Make plenty of time to unwind, rest, have fun and enjoy being with your family - those things are just as important! 


If you haven't been doing so already, make sure you check out PE with Joe Wicks on YouTube - it's a great way to wake yourself up in the mornings!


It was lovely to speak to some of you on the phone today, and those who I didn't speak to, I will try again next week. 


Take care!

Mrs Parker :) 

Hello Everyone,


I hope you are all safe and well.  I know how much some of you like to doodle (especially where you're not supposed to!) so here's a little challenge to distract you, keep you busy, calm you or inspire you. Have a go at the 30 day doodle challenge you can do them on paper or even usd purple mash Painting Tools.


I cannot wait for us to all be back at school together and we can share our doodles. I have been doodling away at home with Hayen and Eshani, to find my inner creativity and to tell you the truth it keeps me calm and helps me to clear my mind in the mornings or at the end of the day.  So if you're struggling with anything or just need a little break #doadoodle. Here's what I've started:


Firstly, I drew lines all over my paper then I started filling in each of the shapes with patterns and lines.  I'm going to try it with a black pen to see if the effect is even more striking! Have a go yourself. All you need is paper and a pencil.


Take care of each other.


Mrs Bharakhda


Mrs B's Doodles!

Hello Rowan class, 


Rowan class, I miss all of you dearly and I think about each of you everyday.  I've been telling Hayen all about each of you and your amazing qualities. It has been lovely to speak to so many of you so far and I will speak to you all again soon.  In the mean time watch this video as I thought it was pretty awesome especially because it reminded me of our last science lesson on electricity.  (DO NOT try it at home)


Please have an adult with you and be safe when on the internet.


Speak to you all soon


Mrs Bharakhda 

Hi All,
Children and work family,

I have had a busy week or so, planting seeds to make a veggie patch (small allotment type thing in the back garden). We are trying: carrots, corn on the cob, peas, strawberries, cabbage, cucumber and onions. Hopefully they will grow and if and when they do, I will add more pictures!

I’ve tidied the rose bed, making space for the veggie patch and chilled with the cats in the garden!

Ooohhhh and when I’ve been in school, I’ve tidied up and remade the reading display board....a work in progress with Mrs Stevens!

Hope you are keeping safe and following the social distancing rules!

Love to all,

Mrs Browne xx


Hello everyone!


I hope you are all well, staying safe and keeping up with the hand washing.

To say that I am missing you all terribly is an understatement and I can not wait until we are all back together again. Especially year 6.

As you have probably guessed, I am fitting in a lot of reading to escape the stresses we are all under now. So, I thought, if anyone is taking advantage of the free reading websites, perhaps you could email me a book recommendation review and I can pick some to put on our website for each year group.

I think you can send the reviews via the office at: 

with a title Book review and it should get to me.

Hope to see you all very soon.

Take care of yourselves and your family.

Stay safe

Mrs Minto
