Homework (Year 6)

Year 6 Homework

Due in: Thursdays

As we head into year 6, it is increasingly important that children should complete homework with greater independence.  Therefore, we are expecting all children to try to complete the maths homework by themselves, using the year 6 prompt sheets as necessary (these are available at the bottom of each term's table).  The purpose of these activities is to encourage a continuous recall of maths facts which will prepare them for their SATs and for year 7.  Pupils are asked to answer similar questions as their morning maths (which is completed independently every morning in class).  

In addition to maths, we may also be asking pupils to complete  comprehension activities, the purpose of which is to enhance reading skills as well as boosting their reading stamina (they have a considerable amount of text to read within a short time in the SATs – 2000+ words in 2019 compared to 1500 in prior years). We still expect pupils to read at least five times per week for a minimum of 15 minutes as per the home-school agreement.  Anything above this quantity of five times will allow your child the chance to qualify for the platinum reading treats so please ensure that your child has their home link book signed by a parent/carer every day. We are really trying to stress to all of the children the importance of reading; therefore, if they do not have their book signed consistently they will lose some of their values time.

Occasionally, we may ask for additional research tasks to be completed.  This may be because the research around this subject is vital in order to complete the lesson in class, and it avoids taking too much time out of the year 6 timetable.

Homework will be set and returned every Thursday.  If your child is struggling to complete their homework, they must see their teacher or LSA before the Thursday hand-in date.  As mentioned above, please use the prompt sheets at the bottom of the table as guidance also.

Times table booklets will also need to be brought in completed for the week on Thursday, and reading records will return to being handed in daily.

Any incomplete tasks will need to be completed during Thursday lunchtime.

Homework will self-marked by the child.
