It is great to hear that the Year 6's are getting on well with their booster homework and are enjoying using the YouTube links to find answers to any tricky questions in the maths homework. We thought it would be useful to have the answers for the recent reading questions available, so that you are able to check and discuss their answers at home, if you want to! The answers for the most recent reading comprehensions can both be accessed here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6ZT_Pe-Q_ukaTNEeEg0WnJhZWs?usp=sharing Fiction is 'The Holiday' piece which was set on the 8th March. Poetry is 'Throwing a Tree' which was set today, 15th March. We will be checking and reviewing homework in our booster sessions but because these lessons are quite fast paced, we won't be marking these in detail as they are just for revision purposes. Hope this is helpful. Miss Bick and Miss Bowman
As you know, Year 6 have started their booster sessions this term. They will now be completing revision homework based on the topic that was covered in each booster session. The children are encouraged to look up their answers for any question that they are unsure about.

It is hard to believe that it’s time to say farewell to you all, but it is a time for reflection, celebration, anticipation and hope.
You have definitely come a long way from the timid new reception students you were seven years ago, to the wonderful young people you are today
As it comes time to say goodbye and your days at primary school come to an end, I am sure that you will be taking with you many cherished memories and friendships. Remember the highlights of primary school, whether it be your friendships, trips, sports teams, great times in the classroom or any number of wonderful experiences you would have had at Oakwood Primary School during your time here. In doing this though, remember that if you spend too much time looking at the doors that close behind you, you may miss seeing them open up ahead.
The end of Yr 6 is certainly a significant milestone in your life. It is time to celebrate the wonderful things you have achieved so far in your learning journey and to look ahead to the new adventure that awaits … high school. Celebrate this milestone with your friends, your family and your school. Be proud of your achievements and what you have learnt, because it’s those things that have helped to shape the person you are today.
We have loved teaching you this year, and will miss you all terribly - Good luck and dream big!
