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. Children should start planning teir own revision including maths skills, spelling rules, grammar terminology and comprehension skills.
 
Homework

In Year Six, homework activities will be given out on a Thursday and will be due in on a Monday. It is expected that children complete their homework to the same high standard that is expected of them in class. In addition to this, children will have a half-termly project to complete. They should work on this continuously throughout the half term ready to present to the class at the end. A separate letter will be sent out at the beginning of each half term with details about the project.

Homework tasks will include Spellings (including the spelling rules), Timetables practise and a short text that they must annotate ready for their reading session with either myself or Ms Smithson the following week. If your child finds their homework difficult, or there is an issue at home resulting in homework not being completed, please let me know via Class Dojo and I will support your child one lunch time. DO NOT complete your child’s homework for them – this neither benefits the learning of your child or my assessments.

It is important that children complete their homework as independently as possible. If your child is struggling with anything they can come and see me for further hel and guidance before the hand in date.


Reading

Home reading should be completed every night by every child. It is vital that your children are reading at home to help improve their fluency of reading and ensuring that they understand what they are reading. Their reading record must be signed by an adult for our class records. Before children can change their reading books, they must first complete a book review. Children will also be taking part in Book Bingo! to ensure that they are reading a wide variety of books. Once they have completed a ‘line’ they will receive a prize and then again for a ‘full house’. Children will be sent a short text each week to read through and annotate. This will be used in one-to-one reading sessions the following week.

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. Children should access Times Tables Rokstars on a regular basis to practise and improve their fluency skills.
