WWJS Reading Requirements

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.

Above are the average reading ages across all year groups. Children were tested on their understanding of words in different contexts. Thank you for all your support with reading. We have supplied the requirements for reading to this post. This is the reading that we do in school and the reading that we hope is going on at home.

Thank you for your ongoing support at home!

Year 6 hoodies

Hello Year 6.

Your hoodies are arriving this week and so if you are not coming into GG Week, you will need to come down to school if possible to collect it and your autograph book too.

My apologies to those children who didn’t get the colour they asked for – it is COMPLETELY my fault. Please blame my old brain getting confused. I did want them to have a lovely memory from me but some may be a little disappointed. If they are absolutely distraught with the colour being wrong, please let me know and I’ll buy them another.
