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.
In a change to last term's spelling work, we will now be focusing on specific lists of words each week. Every Tuesday morning, we will "pre-test" and then complete all our learning and investigative work, together, every day in class, culminating in a test on Friday mornings. There is no expectation that children learn their spellings at home (we will be working on various exercises in school), however, reinforcing school work will only be of benefit in the long term.
This half term's spelling words can be found below:
