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!

What a great tea party and coffee afternoon!

Thank you to everyone who turned up for the Year 3’s tea party, contributed to bringing cakes and helped eating them too. We managed to raise an amazing £330.38. It was a huge success and we couldn’t have managed it without your wonderful support.

Have a fabulous week and thanks again for your amazing efforts!!


Year 5 Trip to Drayton Manor

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.
