Homework will be set on the school website this year; it will consolidate the previous week’s learning and is for all children. Home learning is just for children that are self-isolating/quarantining. Homework books will be sent out and are not to be returned to school.
Weekly homework will consist of:
- Reading at least 3 times a week (recorded in Reading Records)
- Spellings (on the Spellings tab)
- Maths task
- Quiz of the Week
Children can practise their spellings, complete the Maths task and answer the quiz questions in the homework book. The answers will be posted the following week so that parents and children can self-assess their answers at home. Please remember not to return the homework books to school.
If you have any questions for the Year 6 team, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
