Oak - Year 6 2018 - 2019
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.
We have just spent a wonderful weekend at Min-y-Don Adventure Centre. The children had the opportunity to take part in some fantastic outdoor and adventure activities in some stunning surroundings. I was so impressed by their behaviour, bravery and encouragement towards one another and this was commented on by the centre staff too. We are all feeling a bit exhausted but have a busy few weeks left until the end of term!
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.
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.
