In Year 6 homework is an essential cog in the learning wheel and allows you to support your child in a number of valuable ways. Your child has been given two books for homework: a pale blue exercise book and a CGP maths workbook.
Please encourage your child to read each night and practice times tables if they are not yet secure. Your child is expected to do some homework each night.
In line with our Covid policy, we ask that homework books are only sent into school periodically, this half term it will be on November 23rd and December 14th.
Thank you for your support.
If you have any issues regarding homework please contact me via email at:
Please encourage your child to read daily. If reading independently from you, check in with their understanding of the text and sign their reading record book.
Children must bring their reading book and reading record book to school each day as they will need it during DEAR - Drop Everything And Read
In addition to daily reading at home I have signed our class up to Read Theory - a online reading programme that matches perfectly to your child's reading and comprehension levels. I ask that you encourage your child to use this website at least once a week.
Log onto https://readtheory.org/auth/login with the username and password inyour child's blue homework book.
I will be able to track their progress remotely.
Each week your child will be asked to learn a spelling rule and list. We will look at the spellings and rules in class and have opportunity to use them in context. You will find the spelling lists and a brief outline of the rule in your homework book.
Spellings will be tested each week on Thursday.
Maths homework this half term is to practise or learn (if not secure) times tables plus other number facts. These are listed in your blue book.
Times Table Rock Stars is a fabulous tool for learning and practising your tables. Log onto https://ttrockstars.com/ with the username and password in your blue books. Ten minutes per day will really make a difference. It is expected that by Year 6 children are fluent up to 12 x 12, including related division facts.
In addition to this homework, your child has been given a CGP maths book to consolidate maths learning from the week. Please help your child to work through the questions on the pages specified and then mark them with the answers found in the back (no cheating ).
Topic homework can be chosen from a menu of creative and fun activities on Electricity and Light.
Work can be completed in the blue homework book or on other paper or card.
We aim for 5 pieces over the half term. Dojos will be awarded for effort, creativity and skill. I can't wait to see your work!
