                                   NON UNIFORM DAY
                                  Monday 9th July 2012
            All children may attend school in non- uniform on Monday 9th July –
                               but a fine will need to be paid!
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.

                                    SUMMER BBQ

                       sweets, accessories, stationery – the more original the better!
                       Start sending your filled jars into school from Monday 9th July.

Smellies               Perfumes, bath oils, shower gel, soap, etc. Please send donations

                                    RAFFLE TICKETS
The raffle tickets should have come home with your children – if you haven’t yet
received them I suggest they are still lurking in your child’s tray or at the bottom of
their bag!
If you would like to purchase the tickets please send in the ticket stubs and the money
back into school in an envelope as soon as possible. If you do not wish to buy any tickets,
please return the book of tickets to school as soon as possible. The draw will take place
at the Barbecue on 13th July – please sell as many as you can! Thank you.

We would also be extremely grateful if you could try to bring along small change to the
Summer BBQ to spend on the night!

                               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
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’.
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
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.

                                  TIME AND TIDE MUSEUM
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
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!

                                      BRACELET FOUND
  A bracelet has been found on the corner of Windsor Park Gardens and White Woman Lane.
  Please call 01603 403600 if you think it may belong to you.
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

       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;
                      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.
