Year 6 Homework
W/C 10.6.19 and 17.6.19
All children have been given a login for Purple mash https://www.purplemash.com to complete the next two homework tasks.
Week 1: Create a detailed list - which could be given to a younger child - explaining how to be a good junior good citizen based on what was learned last week. Areas to consider are: dog safety, fire/electrics, e-safety, weapon safety, stranger danger, rail safety, enviro-safety and road safety.
Week 2: Using purple mash, create a leaflet to explain how to keep safe and be a good citizen in ONE particular area. This should be detailed and can involve diagrams and pictures.
E.g. how to take care for the environment, how to ensure you are safe around strangers, how to remain safe around dogs.
If children cannot access the website, they MUST come to class 21 on Thursday lunchtime to complete using a school laptop.
In addition, we expect weekly spellings and reading to be completed as per usual.
- 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 usually 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.
