Dear Parents and Guardians,
After much discussion this morning, we have made some changes to our home learning plan due to the differing needs of our year groups. Please see the school website for your child’s year group where you’ll find suggestions of nice activities to do at home. We’d love to see what you’ve been up to so we have created a year group email address that you can send any work to, if you wish. If you need any support with anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly on class dojo.
Please look after yourselves and stay safe!
Very best wishes,
Team Wrockers xx
In 6P, we have lots of children reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It is a ‘weird and funny book – there are lots of them too!’.
If your child loves these books, you could also try the Captain Underpants series and anything else by Dav Pilkey, Jonathan Meres’s World of Norm or the Barry Loser series by Jim Smith. All of them are laugh out loud funny.
At WWJS, our aim is to ignite the passion for reading. Reading is a vital skill that will support children’s learning across the whole curriculum.
In order for children to fulfil their potential in reading we need as much parental support as possible and we hope to work together in order to ensure that all children succeed.
We have been monitoring the number of times children have read per week and these percentages can we be seen below. I am very proud of the children who have really worked hard and are reading more at home. Well done!
Let’s keep up the great work and improve these percentages!

How to listen to reading?
- Praise – Lots of praise when listening to your child read will help with enjoyment and seem less like a chore.
- Ask lots of questions – To keep them interested in the story, ask your child questions as you read. Start with ‘Where did we get to last time?’, ‘Can you remember what’s happened so far?’ and ‘What do you think will happen next?’.
- Read anytime, anywhere – You could read in the car, whilst cooking, in the bath or anywhere!
- Read for enjoyment – To make sure that your child is reading for enjoyment, don’t be afraid of getting them to re-read their favourites as this will increase fluency.
- All reading is good – Don’t rule out non-fiction, comics, graphic novels, magazines or leaflets. Reading is reading and it’s all worthwhile.
We are celebrating World Book Day tomorrow.
Children are invited to wear their pyjamas for a ‘Book at Bedtime’ theme. They can bring in blankets and pillows to get cosy with their book during the day. There will be a number of half hour ‘Drop Everything and Read!’ events that all staff and children will be taking part in.
During the school day, the children will be taking part in World Book Day activities that ignite our passion for reading. We would like to invite you in so that children can share their World Book Day work with you. Parents and carers are invited in from 2.30 onwards.
Tonight, your lovely children will bring home a letter with information about World Book Day. We will be celebrating World Book day 2 days earlier on the 3rd March. Year 4 and 6 are both out on the 5th and they don’t want to miss out!
Each year group will be completing activities based around a book or an author. From 2.30 onwards, parents are invited in to come and have a look at the awesome work that has taken place during WWJS’s World Book Day.
Children are invited to wear their pyjamas for a ‘Book at Bedtime’ theme. However, if they want to dress up, they can!
