Homework should be consolidating what we have been learning in class; hence it should not take too long to complete. If your child finds the homework difficult please do not hesitate to let me know or leave a comment in their planner so that we can focus on working on those skills some more at school.
To start the year homework will consist of 3 pieces - a maths task, a SPaG task or comprehension activity, spelling list and times table practice or application. Please find details of your child's homework on the website if you are unsure of what it is your child needs to complete.
Homework should be handed in by Wednesday. The spelling test will take place on a Wednesday and the times table test will be on a Thursday.
Please also encourage your child to read, then question them on what they are reading to ensure they have a good understanding of the text. Remember to read on a Wednesday evening and get it signed off by an adult for Thursday morning and the whole school Buster's Book Club competition! I am happy to accept a signed note, or planner so do not panic if you cannot find your bookmark.
If you are struggling with what to recommend your child reads please do not hesitate to ask me for some suggestions or pick something off of the 100 books to read during year 5 and 6 list which was given out last year - I have also attached a copy below.
Term 5 homework:
Homework will continue to be set on a Friday and due back in on the following Wednesday. It will comprise of a piece of maths, mental maths task (Numeracy Ninja), a spelling rule linked piece (as we have covered all the 5/6 word lists and rules) and an English task (reading comprehension task). The children will also be given a GPS board game which will allow them to revise different elements of the curriculum if they wish. Should your child have difficulties with anything that is set, please do let me know as I can give the relevant support if needed. Over each half term there will also be optional extra homework tasks which your child can complete if they wish. These tasks are presented as a ‘Takeaway Menu’ format and are aimed to explore the topic we are covering in class and can be completed whenever desired throughout the term.
Please note that over the Easter break no homework has been set so that year 6 come back fully refreshed after the hard work they have put in over the last term! However, should you or your child wish to do something school-related, please complete something from the optional homework takeaway menu, read some books or use the Studyzone resource. Studyzone has GPS and Maths based activities that can be completed and offers video support if needed to explain different skills and elements.]
Have an amazing break and don't eat too much chocolate!
