It is vital the Year 6 children read frequently. The children should also ensure regular practice on TTRockstars, which will help with multiplication tables.


In addition, homework will be set as follows:

Monday: multiplication tables tests

Wednesday: Maths homework to be completed before/by the following Tuesday.

Wednesday: Grammar homework to be completed before/by Monday of the following week.

Friday: reading records will be checked and progress logged; reading homework (class text) will be assigned


Additional pieces of homework may be set for the whole class or individual children as required.


Please ensure you have a homework diary or notebook in school at all times to record tasks and deadlines.

Throughout the Summer Term, we will be revising all the spelling patterns and rules learnt in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. It is imperative that you are able to spell - both in an assessment and when writing independently - the words included in both statutory spelling lists below:

Year 3/4 and 5/6 statutory word lists
