Oak - Year 6 2023 - 2024

Miss Key

Hello and welcome to Year 6!

My name is Miss Key and I teach Year 6 at Upton Westlea. Mr Ellinson will be delivering science lessons on Wednesday afternoons and leading forest school later in the year. Mrs Gold and Mrs Woollen will be supporting us in class throughout 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. If your child reads at least four times per week, they will receive a reading token which will be entered into a half termly class draw!



We aim to do PE twice during the week. Your child should come to school wearing their PE kit on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure that your child is wearing appropriate kit and trainers on  - white PE t-shirt, black/blue leggings or tracksuit bottoms, black/blue hoodie and suitable footwear. No bright colours, football shirts or patterns please. 


Homework will usually be set online using class dojo so please make sure your child knows how to access their work through this online platform. Maths homework will be set on mymaths. We also expect that children will log onto Times Table Rock Stars regularly in order to improve their fluency of multiplication and division facts.

All homework will be based on work covered in class that week and will usually be a consolidation activity.  

Please make sure you are connected to our class on class dojo and that your child also has a student connection in order to complete homework tasks.


Children are permitted to bring in snacks for break time, however, I must insist these are healthy snacks such as fruit, cereal bars, carrot sticks, etc. Water bottles can be brought into school daily but must only contain water.


Many thanks! 

Miss Keysmiley
