Homework

Homework in Year 6 is a very important means of consolidating learning and preparing pupils for their end of year tests. 

 

Homework is set twice weekly:

 

On Tuesday (due in Friday)

On Friday (due in Tuesday)

 

This homework generally includes a maths and English task as well as spellings and times tables using the websites Times Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Frame. We encourage the children to show independence and responsibility for their own homework; however, if they are finding homework difficult, they can always bring it to me during a lunchtime before the homework is due.

  

Spelling Frame and TTRS

 

Your child has access to two very useful online tools to support their learning: Times Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Frame.

 

20 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars homework is set every Friday (due in the following Friday).

 

In addition, the children will be given a spelling rule to learn each week. These spellings will be tested every Friday. Their test results and TTRS speed will be shared with you at parents’ evenings.

 

If your child scores lower than 70% in a spelling test, they will be asked to relearn the rule and will be tested again on Monday. 

 

Reading (15+ minutes daily)

 

Children who read challenging books daily tend to achieve more highly than their peers who do not. 

 

We strongly recommend all children read daily at home on top of the reading they do in school. Having a designated time for reading can help make reading a normal part of everyday life.
