As you are aware Year 6 is an important year for our pupils as they prepare to sit their SATs and transition to high school. The Year 6 team strives to help our pupils to achieve their full potential and give them the best possible start for high school. We expect the pupils to be motivated towards learning and try their very best. We are grateful for the support of parents/carers and are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.




Homework expectations

Each week we expect each child to complete the following activities: 

  • Reading: 15 minutes per day either on Bug Club (web based reading) or reading a fiction book.

  • Spellings are given out weekly on google classroom and class dojo. The children are given a baseline test on a Monday so they know which spellings they need to focus on. They are tested again on a Friday with all the children keen to beat their previous score.

  • Maths: Children can independently access Times Tables Rockstars at home to improve their rapid recall of multiplication tables and corresponding division facts.

  • From time to time we will set extra homework linked to our class topics. Children will be informed about this and instructions given on class dojo and google classroom.



PE days will be updated termly on Dojo. School provides a PE kit of shorts, t-shirt and pumps but children can wear their own kit (please see school uniform information) and come to school ready for PE rather than changing in school. Children have the opportunity to learn and improve their skills in a wide range of activities including gymnastics, dance, games and outdoor and adventurous activities.


This year's residential took place in September at Eric Wright Waterpark on Lake Coniston, Cumbria. The children experienced 3 days, 2 nights together kayaking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, ghyll scrambling amongst other fantastic activities. Next year's residential will take place in September 2024.





SATs week 2024 is the week commencing Monday May 13th.


Transition to high school 

All application forms are to be completed by October 31st 2023. You can go online to complete this on the Blackpool Council website.

Pupils will work with a variety of groups throughout the year to support resilience, mental health and transition including Healthy Heads.

There will be transition work and visits made once high schools have been allocated.





At the end of the year we celebrate Year 6s Westminster years with a Leavers Assembly, Leavers' Memory Book  and Westonbury Festival on our school field.
