Our Year 3 children have now been at school for half a term, so we asked them what their experience of being a junior had been like.
Here is a flavour of those comments:
What helped you settle in to Portway Juniors?
'The children being kind to me' - Tom
'Having nice teachers' - Xavier S
'The teachers coming on trips to the infants and us coming on trips to the juniors' - Olive
'My friend convinced me this school is a good school' - Finley
'Having my Year 6 friend' - Jessica
'The teachers were very nice to me and the dinner ladies are nice, I love Portway Juniors'- Ava
The best bit so far is...
'We went to Derby Theatre for a cultural campus day' - Edith
'Playing with my friends' - Evan
'Having clubs after school and gardening' - Jude
'Having a cool dress down day' - Oliwia
'Learning new things' - Sophie
