Year 6 2020 - 2021

Mr Weston

Welcome to our Year 6 class!

We have a number of different staff members working in Year 6 this term. Mr Weston teaches most mornings and Monday & Thursday afternoons. Ms Holmes is our learning assistant in class all day, whilst Mrs Hurley is also in class every morning. When Mr Weston is not in class, Mrs Evans takes the class to deliver some areas of the curriculum, whilst Mr Hodgkinson will be in for PE on Friday afternoons.

Here is some key information for the summer term - the children's last ever term at Oakdene!

Start and Finish Times

In Year 6, we start our school day at 8:45 and we finish at 3:00.


Children are to come to school in their PE kits on the days they have PE. For Year 6, this is Tuesday and Friday each week.

Spellings & Homework

Children have received homework books to help with their learning in Year 6. Children should bring these into school every Wednesday, when we will go through answers to their homework together and go through any misconceptions. We will also set the new week's homework at that point, which should be added to the sheet stuck into their Maths homework book for reference.

Spellings will be given out on a Monday and last for two weeks. The first Friday there will be a word test, whilst the second Friday will include some sentence dictations that contain the words that were least well spelt the previous week.

PGL Meeting

On Thursday 22nd April, we have a meeting on Teams for our visit to PGL, which we're really looking forward to and takes place from Friday 21st May to Monday 24th May.

The Current government guidance on residential visits is linked here, and an up-to-date kit list has been posted on this page for reference. If you have any further questions, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with the school office.

PGL's own adaptations and risk assessments can be found at this link.

The PGL parent guide can be found here.

Finally, there is are some promotional videos for primary schools at PGL that you can watch.

Summer Term

With no official SATs in May this year, we will be working through our normal Year 6 curriculum throughout the summer term. We will complete some teacher assessments alongside some previous test paper assessments in the 2nd half of term to determine children's attainment as they move to high school. Please see the Y6 Topic Overview in the files section of this page to find out what we are learning about across the curriculum this term.

We also hope to work on our Year 6 production and Leavers Assembly this term, and hope to be able to perform in front of parents by the end of term.
