Welcome to Year 6 Oyster!

Hello and welcome to the webpage for Year 6 Oyster.  My name is Miss Gavin and I am the class teacher. Year 6 can be a challenging year, but we will be supporting the children throughout the year to work towards their potential.  There will be lots of exciting moments and new experiences along the way.

All children need to read at home every night and should bring their reading book into school each day.  In the pupil planners, there are ideas for things to talk about and questions to ask your children about their reading. 

Whenever possible, please help your child to practise their weekly times tables and spellings.  Testing them at home will help cement their learning of spelling rules and improve their recall speed of multiplication facts. 

In Year 6 children should be using Times Tables Rockstars regularly in order to improve their recall speed.   We will be holding competitions and battles within class and against other classes during the year. 

Children are also expected to log onto Read Theory at least once a week.  This website helps to support reading and comprehension skills through quick, regular rehearsal. 


Year 6 Curriculum Overview 


We have used the national curriculum and our expertise to map out a broad, balanced, creative and coherent curriculum. We believe our curriculum empowers our pupils to access and develop their knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions to enable them to become well-rounded citizens who take with them a life-long love of learning.
