Y6 Yearly Overview

  

  Homework 

Y6 Hand-in day: THURSDAY

Maths homework

Reading comprehension

 Reading homework

Every child is required to complete a minimum of 4x reading at home every week. We would also recommend that every child is read to by an adult once each week. (This counts as a maximum of 1 out of 4).

 Every time you read:

Write the title of the book you read;

  • Write the page numbers that you read;

Once per week:

  • Write a summary of what you have read that week (NEW - just ONE summary for the week)
  • Choose one new vocabulary word that you discovered during your reading homework this week. Write down a definition for the word and a sentence using this new word correctly.

Grown-ups

Please sign your child’s reading record AT LEAST ONCE PER WEEK to confirm that the above homework is complete.

 

 

 Maths homework

Every child will be given a maths worksheet which reflects what has been covered in class - though there may be sometimes be new content too.

All maths homework is marked and responded to in class every Friday, when new homework is also given out.

 

English Homework 

NEW - Every child will be given a short reading comprehension to complete at home every Friday.

 

 Spelling homework

Each child will have a personalised list of 10 words to learn at home each week, generated from words used in their reading & writing during the previous week.  These should be found at the back of their spelling book (they complete their weekly tests in class at the front). Please test your child once a week at home and ensure that their spelling book is brought to school for their weekly test in class every Friday.
