Homework and homework help

Homework expectations

Children are expected to read 5 times per week. Diaries will be checked daily and reading totals collated every Friday. We understand that older children do not need/want to read to an adult all of the time but we still ask parents to sign/initial their child’s reading diary to say that they have read independently. Children with less than 4 entries signed/initialled by an adult per week may be asked to stay in and read. We cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading to boost fluency and comprehension skills. National tests for the end of Key Stage 2 are extremely rigorous and children are expected to have a good reading stamina and extensive vocabulary. The only way to improve is to read, read and read again! 

Homework will be set on a weekly basis. It will be given on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. All children are expected to complete the tasks set. Each week there will be a combination of maths, reading and spelling, punctuation and grammar to complement our learning in school. 

Please support your children at home with their times tables. All children are expected to have a fluent recall of times tables to 12x12 along with the related division facts. A secure knowledge of all times tables supports children with many areas of the mathematics curriculum.

We have included some resources on this website that may be useful for you to support your child’s learning at home. These include questions to promote discussion when reading and a useful guide to all things SPAG!

As always, if there is anything that we can do to help or if you have any queries, please don't hesitate to speak to a member of the year 6 team.
