Year 6 2019 - 2020

Mr Weston

Mrs Garton-Pope

Mrs Green

Welcome to Year 6!

Our class teacher is Mr Weston. What a hard task-master he is!  We have to work really hard to impress him. Mrs Blennarhassett will be in class in the mornings, and Mrs Evans in the afternoons.

Our PE sessions are on Thursday mornings and Friday afternoons with the sports coach, Mr Hodgkinson. Please ensure PE kits are always in school.

Don't forget to make sure that Homework books/sheets, Spelling books and Reading Records are all in school at the right times. Reading records are checked on a Monday morning and should be signed off by a parent. Spellings are always tested on a Friday. See the spelling list sheet saved in the files below for weekly spelling homework.

Be sure to practise our 'pink words' at home. These are great words to build up your vocabulary.

12th July 2019 Update

What a fantastic week we have had in Year 6 with our performances of 'What A Knight'! The children were absolutely amazing in making the production as funny as possible.

We now head into our last 8 days of life at Oakdene for this cohort. These days include their transition days to high school (Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th July) and our trip to Formby (Wednesday 17th July). Please remember that for the Formby trip, children require a packed lunch and drink, appropriate clothing for the weather (sunhat/lotion for hot weather, waterproofs for rain), non-uniform and sensible shoes for walking. We also have our Y6 reward day on Monday 22nd July, when we will be visiting Velocity. Please remember to ensure the online waiver has been completed.

This class will be sorely missed when they go. They are an incredible cohort, who demonstrate our school values at all times. I feel incredibly proud to have taught them, and will without exception miss every single one of them when they leave.

End of Year Reports have gone out today, and hopefully their fantastic efforts right across the curriculum and in enhancing life at Oakdene generally come across in what has been written about them.

Also, within the envelope is a copy of the children's SAT scores. This can be a little confusing for parents, so I will endeavour to explain a little more here.

The judgements contained within the actual report are teacher assessments for all subjects, both core and foundation. For Reading and Maths, these judgements were made based on class work and ongoing assessments prior to the SAT results being available. These results have also been passed on in documentation to high school.

The separate sheet contains teacher assessment results for Writing and Science, and the SAT results for Reading, SPaG and Maths.

In these tests, a scaled score of 100 is judged to be at standard. There is no official score for children working at greater depth at this point - greater depth measures are only usually revealed in September. Only the Writing teacher assessment currently has a greater depth measure attached (Science does not). However, for your reference, in previous years a scaled score of 110 in each of the SAT tests was enough to secure greater depth.

This year, the raw scores for standards and potential greater depth were as follows...

Reading - 28 out of 50 (scaled score of 100);  41 out of 50 (scaled score of 110)

SPaG - 36 out of 70 (scaled score of 100); 55 out of 70 (scaled score of 110)

Maths - 58 out of 110 (scaled score of 100); 95 out of 110 (scaled score of 110)

Some children will be delighted with their results; others may end up feeling slightly disappointed. However, I can only reiterate that I am incredibly proud of every member of this class and their efforts. The SATs only represent a very small part of what makes them successful children. They are an outstanding group in every way.
