Homework

We will be giving the children some English and Maths homework from the middle of January in order to help the children revise the concepts useful for their KS2 SATs in May 2018.

Year 6 homework will be given out on Mondays and reviewed on Fridays.  Children will also need to learn their spellings and focus times tables, have five entries in his/her reading journal (50 pages per week minimum, please), and earn a Mathletics certificate.  Such homework will be good preparation for High School in September.

Spelling tests (5 spellings only to encourage deeper learning) are done on a Friday.  Try to complete 12 x 12 grids regularly.  Children in Year 6 must know all their times tables facts (multiplication and division) and number bonds instantly.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 30 mins five evenings each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.
