Home Learning

 

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

World Book Day tomorrow!

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.

**School Bank**

We have been working closely with our local Credit Union and are very excited to announce that our very own school bank for saving will be opening VERY soon! Our school bank will allow the children to regularly save a small amount of money each week. We really want the children to realise the importance of saving regularly – it’s not the amount of money they save that’s important, but the act of saving. A little every week will soon build up!

The launch of our school bank will coincide with a ‘finance week’ that we have named ‘Mission: Money!’ and will begin next week. All classes will be taking part in a range of lessons which aim to teach our children how to be financially responsible through a variety of different activities.

We would like to invite you to our launch assembly on Monday 13th January at 2:30pm, where our local Credit Union representative and a representative from The Citizens Advice Bureau will be available to talk to you more about our school bank and how this will work, after our assembly has finished. You are then welcome to take your children home!

We’re very lucky to be able to offer our children this fantastic opportunity and hope that as many of our children as possible sign up to be part of this super financial initiative!

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Brindley-Jones

 

 

 

 

Reading Ages

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
Year 3 7-8 7.7
Year 4 8-9 8.4
Year 5 9-10 8.4
Year 6 10-11 9.9

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!
