Year 6 Homework
Homework is set on Google Classroom on a Friday. It would be fantastic if this is completed by Tuesday. Your child will receive Maths, English and Spelling homework that will mirror the learning taking place in lessons and provide an opportunity for your child to revisit and reinforce the skills and knowledge that they have been taught. Your child may also receive reading homework.
Please encourage your child to read daily at home. If you also have the opportunity to hear your child read to you- this is also highly beneficial.
Children should also be encouraged wherever possible to take part in Reading Karate! This is a program where children earn different colour wristbands according to how much time they’ve spent reading - the children find it very motivating and really love earning the different bands!
Times Tables and counting
Please encourage your child to do a short (no more than 10 mins), daily practice on Times Table Rockstars or some counting on and back games. Quick recall supports children's calculation in all areas of the curriculum.
