It’s great to see how many of you Wrock-stars are still gigging. Here’s this week’s top acts:
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.
At the moment we have only had half of the payments for Drayton manor and the trip is NEXT Wednesday. Unless we have the remaining payments of £25 by Friday, the trip will need to be cancelled.
We do not have the budget to pay the remainder of the money from school fund.
Sorry to those of you who have already paid before the holidays when the letter came out.
We have arranged a meeting on the 19th September in school at 5:30pm to discuss the residential visit on the 21st-25th October 2019. The children will go home at normal time and then return with their parents/carers.
We will be discussing the activities which the children will be taking part in, clothing requirements (will get wet and muddy so don’t buy nice new clothes!) and any medical needs for the children whilst they are away. Medical forms will be sent out early in September for completion. Please note: if we don’t have prior knowledge of any medication needed whilst away then we will not be able to administer it.
Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting!
Come along on Tuesday 18th June at 12pm and join your child for lunch. On the menu is Big Breakfast, and at only £3 for 2 courses, it’s great value.
Please pay when you come for lunch, just call the school office to book your place.
See you on Tuesday
Instead of two individual fund-raisers, this year we have decided to organise an extravaganza and hold the Summer Fayre in conjunction with the Year 6 Enterprise Day.
This will be held on Friday 28th June in the afternoon.
More information will follow soon.
On Friday 14th June, we will be having a mufti day.
We are not asking for money; All we ask for in return is a bottle for the tombola for the Summer Fayre (more information on this coming soon). Please make sure that the bottles are unopened. Believe it or not, we have had half-empty bottles in the past! Bottles could include toiletries, wine, sauce, pop etc.
If your child does not want to participate, they are welcome to come in their normal school uniform.
Wow! Take a look at these amazing improvements in children’s speed on TT Rockstars. I am so impressed!
A massive well done to the ‘Rock Stars’ above. If your child isn’t already using TT Rockstars on a regular basis, please encourage them to do so; this increased speed in times-table recall will have a huge positive impact in their maths lessons (and beyond).
The children are very excited to invite you into school tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm to share their work. They have worked exceptionally hard in Science and Topic and can’t wait to show off their work.
The children will be allowed to go home following this, along with any younger siblings.
We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
