Oak - Year 6 2018 - 2019

Miss Key

Hello and welcome to Year 6!

My name is Miss Key and I teach Year 6 at Upton Westlea. Miss Smith and Mrs Wellings also work in Year 6 this year.

Just a reminder that SATs week is in two weeks - the week beginning Monday 13th May. The children have been working incredibly hard in preparation for their tests and so I would like to see everyone in school over the next few weeks as we are still covering many skills which will help them during the tests. I am very proud of the children and of their efforts and all I ask is that they try their very best. In my years as a Year 6 teacher, I have noticed that the children have actually quite enjoyed SATs week! 

Monday 13th May - Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

Tuesday 14th May - Reading

Wednesday 15th May - Arithmetic (Paper 1) and Reasoning (Paper 2)

Thursday 16th May - Reasoning (Paper 3)

There is no writing test although work from across the whole year will be assessed and moderated to see if children have reached the expected standard for Year 6 in writing.

School will be open from 8.15 am each day of that week and the children from Year 6 are able to get a healthy breakfast! Please fill in the slip and return it to myself or Miss Smith as soon as possible.


As is the case across the school, I give out english and maths homework on Fridays due for return on the followingTuesday. The work set will be based on content which has been covered during the week.


Reading is fun! It is also a fundamental skill, which enables children to access all areas of the curriculum. Reading regularly will improve general comprehension skills, develop a broader vocabulary, increase general knowledge and can give children a better understanding of the world around them. Reading just for ten minutes each day can make a huge difference.

We ask that children read at home daily, whether that be a comic, a reading book, a poem or even an online newspaper! Please make sure reading records are signed daily and brought into school each day.

Our current class read: Prince Caspian by CS Lewis


We aim to do PE twice during the week so please make sure PE kits are in school and kept in school for the half term.
