Homework Expectations

In Year 6, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday. Children who do not complete their homework will attend a homework club, ran by Mrs Edwards on a Monday during the school day. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class every Tuesday. 



Looking for more inspiration? Books for topics is a BRILLIANT resource for finding books on all subjects and for all ages. You can sign up to their blog and mailing list and get recommended reads straight to your inbox every month. 



We have P.E. every WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY afternoon, so please ensure that your child comes in their correct kit on these days. Kit should include school P.E. t-shirt, school jumper, tracksuit bottoms or shorts and trainers.
