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 or SPaG task, a 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 and 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. Across both years 5 and 6 we are having a bit of a competition to see who can race around our Readopoly Board - completing a different reading challenge on each space. This aims to help encourage daily reading as well as the incentive to try reading books they would not necessarily normally pick straight away (including both fiction and non-fiction text types).
