Home Learning
Continuing our learning at home is essential in order for Year 6 to make the expected progress this year and achieve our best in the SATs in May
 
Homework
In Year Six, homework will be given out on a Monday and will be due in on a Thursday. It is expected that children complete their homework to the same high standard that is expected of them in class.
 
Spelling: Children will receive spellings every week. On Monday, they will be taught the spelling rule in class and then they will be given 10 spellings to learn based around the spelling rule. In addition to this, children will also be given curriculum spellings to revise from the Year 5 and 6 spelling list. These will be tested as part of the ‘Big Spell Beat That!’ on a weekly basis. 
Comprehension Task: Children will receive a comprehension task on a weekly basis. This will consist of a short text to read and then 10 questions to answer in full sentences in their homework books. This task should take approximately 15-20 minutes. 
Maths/Arithmetic Task: Children will receive an arithmetic task on a weekly basis. This will consist of 6 questions. Children should aim to complete the questions within 5 minutes and show their working out. In addition to this, children will also be expected to practise their times tables and ‘Big Maths Beat That!’ which will be completed on a weekly basis. On occasions, children may be given a maths task from their group teacher. Group teachers will give instructions for the tasks they set. 
Curriculum Linked Task: Children will receive a short task relating to an area of the curriculum being taught that week.
 
Children should ensure they read/ discuss their reading book on a daily basis at home and ensure that it is signed and dated by an adult. Children are also encouraged to write about their books in their reading journal e.g. what they enjoy about the book, a prediction about what might happen next or information about a character. 

 If your child finds their homework difficult, or there is an issue at home resulting in homework not being completed, please contact me. Children can ask for help in school prior to the hand in date and I will always maketime during breaks to help them further.


Times tables: Times tables are an essential part of Mathematics. Having secure knowledge of Timetables will enable Year 6 to use and apply their knowledge across the Mathematics Curriculum.
