How to support your child at home...

In Year 6, we have weekly home learning tasks to complete which will always be assigned on a Monday. 

Spelling Frame - this will be set on Monday after new spellings have been introduced. We expect children to complete at least 2 tests weekly.

TT Rockstars Homework is ongoing with children's times tables regularly updated and new challenges set. 2 studio entries per week please!

Reading Homework - in Year 6 we expect reading on a daily basis, with a pupils' entry being added to GoRead at least 5 times a week. Following this, children will ensure a book review is completed and handed in before collecting a new book.

MyMaths - a weekly challenge is set for the children to complete, linked to their current focus in Maths lessons.


Other homework will be set and shared on Class Dojo where appropriate.
