Homework is obviously the best way for you to support your child at school.
Reading with your child regularly, discussing and asking comprehension questions about what they have read is essential. Please make sure your child reads with you at least 3 times a week and that you record this in their reading diary.
Children will be set weekly spelling activities. We learn one set of spellings over two weeks with a dictation and spelling test to assess.
Maths homework will usually be set online using My Maths, but may sometimes consist of other activities.
We set a range of topic and science based activities each half term that the children can choose from on Purple Mash. Children should complete 1 of these each week.
Our year 6 children are set work from their CGP revision books each week. This helps them embed their learning in maths and English in preparation for SATS.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on a Thursday. Children will be asked to write a list of their homework in their diary each week. Children will be rewarded for completed homework by gaining team points. We celebrate exceptional homework weekly; children can share their outstanding work with the class and receive dojos
With the SATs test fast approaching ( WC 09.05.22) we have compiled some revision materials for your children. These tasks can be accessed via the Star links below.
There is a huge array of different activities to choose from; the tasks are divided into four sections: Reading, Grammar, Arithmetic and Maths Reasoning. Each section contains differentiated packs to cater to the children’s differing abilities. It will be up to your child to choose the topics which they feel they need to revise.
Whilst this work is not compulsory, it would be beneficial for your child to undertake some revision activities for each subject, perhaps for ten to fifteen minutes per day. There are enough activities to last throughout the remaining four weeks before the SATs tests.
Most tasks include answer sheets. Please feel free to check the answers with your child but this work does not need to be submitted for marking.
In addition, please the CGP books provided to complete activities aid revision.
In addition to any revision work undertaken, it is vital that your children continue to read for 20 minutes per day, at least three times per week during the Easter holidays and beyond. Their home/school books will be checked upon their return to school after the holiday.
Thank you for your continued support.
