Hi all, we are on our way and hoping to be back at school at 10pm
We are all working really hard in the arena. We’re sitting in block 4 row A and B 100-111. If you’re coming tonight, give us a wave!
Thank you to everyone who came to our launch assembly for our ‘Mission: Money’ week!
Here is a brief summary of what was shared:
- Once you have completed the Junior Savers membership form, please can you return it to the school office in person, along with a valid form of ID for your child (birth certificate, passport, NHS medical card)
- When we have received the membership form and taken a photocopy of the ID, we will send this on to the Credit Union, who will create a savings account for your child along with a unique account number
- Each child will then receive a Junior Savers paying in booklet, where a record of their deposits will be kept
- Our School Bank will be open every Tuesday and Friday at 8:30am – we will be in the hall where Breakfast Buddies takes place
If you would like more information on how to make deposits in other ways (direct debit, standing order etc.) or anything else regarding the savings account, please contact the Just Credit Union on:
Once again, thank you so much for your support with this and happy saving!
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. As a school, we will ensure that our children are taught to read with fluency, accuracy and understanding. Above all, we want children in our school to become enthusiastic, independent and reflective readers. Essentially, we want children to enjoy reading.
In order for our 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.
Average reading ages in each year group:
|Approx. reading age||Our average reading age|
Today, you will receive a letter with your child’s reading age on. Children were tested on their understanding of words in different contexts. Thank you for all your support with reading, we have attached a help sheet on the other side of the letter that might come in handy at home.
Thank you for your ongoing support at home!
We hope you have a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Please can we remind parents and carers that when sending any money into school with their child, that it is in a labelled envelope with name, class, amount of money enclosed & what money is for. This includes dinner money and trip money.
As long as money is not loose it does not matter what you use. (old junk mail envelopes, bank cash bags, sandwich bags) If your child loses money that is not labelled, then we cannot trace where it has gone.
For your convenience we sell packs of small envelopes in the school office at £1 for 50.
Thank you for your co-operation.
As you are probably aware, Mrs Morris is off work at the moment. She is currently in pain and not able to walk or drive. As a school, we are trying to ensure the children in her class have as little disruption as possible but unfortunately we will need to postpone the parents’ evening appointments on Tuesday afternoon as we are not expecting that Mrs Morris will be back by then. We wanted to give you as much notice as possible and we will rearrange a chance for you to meet with your child’s teacher as soon as possible.
If your child was looking forward to visiting the Book Bus with you and finishing early, then please feel free to come and have a look at their books with them and treat them to an early finish for the afternoon.
Any questions, please feel free to phone me.
On Tuesday 12th November during the school day, the Book People Book Bus will be visiting school and will parked on the lower school playground. We have a timetable for each class to visit the bus to look at the books during the morning and purchase if they want to. Therefore, you may send your child to school on Tuesday with a small amount of money to spend on a book (if you wish). We recommend £6-£7 maximum. Please make sure that any money sent in is in an envelope marked with their name and that your child keeps it in their school bag until their time to visit. There is no pressure to buy a book and your child can just go on the bus to look during their time slot.The bus will also be open during the afternoon (until approx. 4pm) for parents to visit and purchase books as this is the same day as the Parent afternoon/evening consultations. You may take your child/children on the bus with you after your appointment and then take them straight home if you wish.You may also purchase books online before the day if you would like to and the website details are here:
Any books you buy will earn commission for school to enable us to purchase books for our classrooms and Library so we thank you for your continued help and co-operation.
