Pupils in Years 5 and 6 will be required to donate a bottle for the Bottle Stall Tombola at the Summer BBQ as a fine and pupils in Years 3 and 4 are asked for donations for the general Tombola Stall. If you would like to make additional donations in additional to the fine payable for not wearing school uniform we would be extremely grateful. Alternatively, children can donate a jar. They will need a clean glass jar with a plastic screw on top. The jar can be any size – the more varied the better! The idea is that the jars can be filled with anything they choose – the more original the better! Our suggestions have been things such as sweets, bath salts, craft beads, small soaps or bath beads, hair bands, cotton wool balls … I’m sure you will have many, even better ideas. Thank you so much once again for your support.

THE WWL FRIENDS SUMMER BBQ 13th JULY 2011 6.00 – 9.00pm Entrance to BBQ £1 per adult, 50p per child REPORTERS OF THE FUTURE Budding Newshounds at WWL planned, wrote and published their own newspaper. They learned about newspapers as part of a literacy project and visited by Evening News reporter Mark Shields, who told pupils about day-to-day life working on a newspaper. The class, pictured with Mark, divided themselves into a miniature newsroom, with a group of editors planning the papers and a team of reporters and photographers finding stories and pictures before deadline passed for publication of ‘The Beast’. nd On 22 June Mark Shields came in. He writes for the Evening News. He did fun activities with us. It was in Set 1 English and we had lots of fun. It was very interesting and I know lots more about newspapers, so thank you Mark Shields for coming to WWL! By Jessica We were very pleased to get in the newspaper and being called ‘reporters of the future’. Mark read our newspaper ‘The Beast’ and was impressed. One pupil asked how much Mark gets paid for his job. I was baffled when he said not much but he also said it didn’t matter because he gets to meet famous people (e.g. Prince Charles). It was a fun lesson and it was interesting! By Mia Mark brought in some newspapers and we got to find our favourite headline. It was lots of fun, I learnt a lot and it was great! By Connor S Mark came in to see all of our hard work we’ve been doing on newspapers. At WWL he came to tell us that we were doing all the right features to create a newspaper. He told us the right way we should put our reports in. We had a load of fun and learnt interesting facts and we found out about the day-to-day life of a reporter. By Rebecca TIME AND TIDE MUSEUM th On Tuesday 26 June Year 3 went to the Time and Tide Museum. The Year 3 pupils learnt about Anderson Shelters, Spam sandwiches and rationing, good planes and bad German bombers and Make do and Mend. They learned lots of things like the different bombs and planes and what things you could and could not eat. When they did Make Do and Mend they made miniature rugs. They enjoyed lots of things. I think they loved making Spam sandwiches. They probably would all like to go to the Time and Tide Museum again. They seemed to love it. Now they can put their hand up lots in history. By Sophie Campbell We loved the Time and Tide Museum. The only thing we didn’t like was the stinky fish smell. We met the Air warden and we learned how to hold a ARP Water Drill and marched along the path with it. After that we went to Mr Salmon’s shop and he asked us a few questions. All the food was different and had different wrappers on. Then he took us in a room and we made Spam sandwiches. We tried it. I thought it was going to be disgusting but it was lovely! By Megan Welsh NORWICH SCIENCE OLYMPIAD Our pupils represented us brilliantly at the Science Olympiad on Wednesday this week. We had a very successful day!

TALK HOMEWORK & WOW WORDS As you know your involvement in your child’s learning is essential. Below you will find this week’s Talk Homework task. The aim this week is to get children to read information carefully to verbally answer some simple questions. On Tuesday morning, all classes will share their answers. Please spend 10 minutes talking with your child about the questions below; Olympic Torch An exciting week for Norwich as the Olympic torch arrived in our city. What does it mean to be ‘inspirational’? 8000 inspirational people will carry the torch around the UK. If you could choose someone ‘inspirational’ to carry the torch, who would it be and why? How would you feel if you were chosen to carry the Olympic torch? Here is a picture of the oldest and youngest UK torchbearers. Can you find out why they were chosen to carry the torch? Our ‘WOW’ Word this week is; Inspirational Encouraging, motivating, stimulating Please encourage your child to use this word, in the right context, as much as possible. The ‘Talk Homework’ and ‘WOW’ words will be set every Friday; children will share their ‘Talk’ with their class on a Tuesday morning. We will encourage the children to use the WOW word throughout the week. Thank you for your support in helping your child.
