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:

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!
