Oak - Year 6 2019 - 2020
Hello and welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back to school! I hope you have all had an enjoyable and restful summer and you are ready to take on the final year of primary school.
My name is Miss Key and I teach Year 6 at Upton Westlea. Mrs Field will also be teaching small groups for English and maths. This year we are very lucky to have further support from a number of staff on the following days:
Mon: Mrs Pretsell, Miss Smith and Mrs Wellings.
(Mr Ellinson will teach science on Monday afternoons).
Tues, Wed and Thurs: Miss Smith, Mrs Wellings and Mrs Woollen.
Fri: Mrs Carline, Miss Smith and Mrs Woollen.
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 should plans change.
Homework will be given out on Friday and children should aim to hand it in by the following Tuesday. Homework will usually be marked in class with the children.
All homework will be based on work covered in class that week and will usually be a consolidation activity. From time to time, a more creative homework will be set. After Christmas, homework may come in the form of a SATs paper in preparation for tests which will be taken in May.
Children will also be given a set of spellings on Friday and will be tested on the following Tuesday. These spellings will have been taught throughout the week.
