Year 6 Homework is an important element of your child's education. It consolidates their learning and challenges them in next steps. Your child, taking responsibility for their homework in Year 6 is an important skill as they progress on to secondary school next year.
It is expected that Year 6 pupils read at least three times a week at home. Some prefer to read independently but it is important to ask them questions about their book, to check their understanding. Please sign and return their Reading Diary to school every Wednesday. Children put it in the sparkly box. These children will be entered into a weekly reading raffle for a variety of prizes.
Each week your child will be looking at a particular spelling rule in lessons. It is important that the children learn these rules and are confident in applying them. A Year 5/6 word list has been sent home with your child. The Government expect every Year 6 child to be able to read spell and understand the meaning of these words. If it has been misplaced, there are spares on the Year 6 noticeboard. Weekly spelling rules are also sent home. Each Friday your child will be tested on these words and others which follow that rule. They will also be tested on words from the Y5/6 word list.
Your child will receive weekly Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation Homework. This is sent home every Tuesday and Thursday and must be returned by the following Tuesday and Thursday. There are rewards for effort at the end of this term.
It is related to the maths we are teaching in class that week. Mrs Singleton sends homework Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. It must be completed that same night as it is reviewed in class the next day. Miss Adams sends home maths homework on Monday, to return Wednesday. Then out again Wednesday, to return Friday. Again, this is reviewed in class.
If your child misses two homework tasks in one week, we will make a phone call home to see if we can support in any way.
Thank you for your continued support.
