Answers for literacy booster homework

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:

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.

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. All questions and answers can be accessed here:

Goodbye and Good Luck to all Year 6

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!

Below is a link to access lots of pictures from the year as well as the video shown at the leaver's assembly:

Goodbye and good luck!

  • The main export in Greece is Olives and Olive oil
  • The climate is very hot and sunny
  • The area of Greece is 50,961 square miles
  • The capital of Greece is Athens
  • The greek national sport is football
  • the population of Greece is about 11 million
  • Greece has a very sandy and rocky terrain and very dry
  • Greece is a country is the southern part of EUROPE


We are working up to making pots out of papier-mache. Once we have made it we will let it dry and paint it orange. We will lightly draw on a design from a myth and then paint it With a fine liner we will outline and draw patterns.
