Year 6 Homework
Children are expected to read 5 times a week for approximately 20 minutes and record it in their reading journals.
Children need to practise their set spellings every evening at home in their home spelling book. There are lots of spelling strategies suggested in this book to refer to.
We’ve had some stonking homework handed in this term. We’ll keep adding lovely examples throughout the year! Please find below a link to the full homework menu, should you wish to have another look.
- Curriculum Evening Powerpoint
- Mental Maths Homework
- Homework is handed out on Monday and collected back in on the following Monday.
- We expect every child in Year 6 to read for at least 15 minutes at home every school night. We also expect children to record this in their reading record. It is imperative in Year 6 that children are reading regularly in preparation for their SATS examinations and Secondary school.
- All Year 6 children are expected to practise the times tables they are currently learning at home. Evidence of this in their homework book, when possible, would be much appreciated!
- Year 6 children must practise their weekly spellings in their home spelling book five times per week.
- In addition to the above, Year 6 children will be set a piece of separate English and Maths homework each week. Their projects will vary and will come with individual guidance. The general rule of thumb is that each piece of homework should take a minimum of 20 minutes.
- If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 6 we strive to achieve greater independence in preparation for Secondary School. We operate an open-door policy and welcome parents and guardians to approach and discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher. Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
