Information on Homework:

Maths

Mathematics homework will be set every Wednesday and is due back in the following Monday.

 

Please allow your child up to 30 minutes to complete as much of this homework as they can. If you needed to support them with any elements of it please jot as a note either on the homework or in their Reading Record – Home School Book.

 

Timestables

Children need to be practising their times tables weekly using the packs in their Maths Homework Folders. This will be set on Fridays due back on the following Monday. 

 

In Year 6 we expect children to know all their times tables, as well as the division derivates (e.g. 4 x 6 = 24 so 24 ÷ 6 = 4)

 

English

English homework will be set on Wednesday (in the form of a Learning Log) and is due back in a fortnight on a Monday

 

Please allow your child up to 30 minutes each week to complete as much of this homework as they can. If you needed to support them with any elements of it please jot as a note either on the homework or in their Reading Record – Home School Book.

 

Talk

‘Talk’ homework will be set every other Monday in preparation for our Big Write which will take place the next day.

The children will have information handed to them on that Monday and this information will also be found on this page. Please spend at least 10 minutes discussing the task with your child. It is not necessary to record anything.

 

Spelling

The children will be set spelling homework every Wednesday and is due in on Monday.

Reading

We would also like all children to read daily at home, either silently or to an adult. If you hear your child read, please encourage them to read fluently and with expression.

 

Whether your child is silently reading or you are hearing your child to read, we encourage you to ask them questions about their book to aid their understanding.

 

Your child has a Reading Record – Home School Book which they need to be filling in daily once they have read. This could be a note of what they have read and or what they thought about what they have read. If you hear them read we ask you to write and make a comment in this book. Your child will need to ensure they have this book in school every day.

 

The children have been set a reading challenge to see if they can earn certificates and rewards. 30 books for a bronze certificate, 40 for a silver and so on.
