As it has been announced that the current lockdown is to continue, we have put together some suggestions of things your child could be doing at home over the next few weeks.
We hope that you’re all staying safe and well and we look forward to seeing the children soon.
The Year 6 Team.
We’re really enjoying seeing what you’ve been getting up to whilst school’s closed – from PowerPoints about famous Victorians and William Morris inspired artwork to baking and practical skills like tying a tie and doing your own shoelaces. We’ve even had someone baking dog treats.
In my house, we had an afternoon of family games, which was a great way of spending quality time without the pressure of learning. Even Dottie the dog joined in, although I’m not sure she enjoyed Trivial Pursuit.
Enjoy this time making memories with your children!
Please take care!
We will miss seeing your lovely children every day!
Very best wishes,
Year 6 Team xx
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.
