It has been so lovely to see all of the children back in school and they have all entered into year 6 with a good working attitude. PE day for year 6 will be on a Tuesday each week and all children need to come to school in outdoor PE kit as they will not be getting changed in school.
Homework will be set every Friday and we will be checking it on each subsequent Friday. Children completing the set homework will be given house points and lots of praise.
- Reading – homework will be to read using the Scholastic Online Reading Programme (see the link below). Children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes, five times a week. This will allow the children to make steady progress in their reading, however if they read more often, they will make more rapid progress. In addition to the reading on the Scholastic website, children can choose to read their own real books at home.
- For spelling, children will initially be given year 3, 4, 5 and 6 statutory words. These are words that children in year 6 are expected to spell accurately in their writing. Please help your child to practice these, at home, as this will help their writing in school.
- The school have paid for every child in year 6 to have access to SATs Companion. This will form the majority of the homework and revision set each week in preparation for the SATS tests they will undertake next May. This again will be set on a Friday and will be checked the following Friday to ensure they have completed their homework. It is very important that the children undertake these tasks as they will support the learning in school. Children will be set Maths and Grammar weekly. See link below to the website.
- The government expectation is for all children by the end of year 4 to be fluent in all times tables (upto twelve times twelve). If you feel your child needs support in learning their tables, they can access TT Rockstars, a fun and engaging way to learn their times table facts.
- Children have been given their logins for all of the websites (a copy is located in their reading diaries) and we have checked in school that these work. If your child is unable to complete the online homework, they will be given the opportunity to undertake these tasks at lunch or playtimes.
