In preparation for high school, Year 6 children receive homework on a Friday and it is due in on a Monday. It will be based on their learning that week and should be completed independently and neatly with pencil or a black pen. Please support your child in ensuring they take their homework seriously as it is a great way for them to develop skills like independence and resilience and it allows Miss Hemingway and Miss Garner to identify any areas they may need further support. Thank you very much
Children will receive spellings on a Friday and must practise them regularly throughout the week in order to complete a test on the following Thursday. We recommend 15 minutes a day. Spelling Shed is a great method to learn them by playing games and completing assignments. Pupils have a username and password and can even access it on their phones!
Let's ensure Year 6 win the weekly Spelling Shed competition
Fluent times tables from 0-12 is an absolute must by Year 6 and will really help the children in their Maths SATs. It is also important they know the related division facts eg. If 6 x 4 = 24, then 24 divided by 6 = 4. Very speedy tablers will also be able to supersize and super skinny their tables. Use the sheets below to practise really applying tables. Using songs and raps is also a great way to learn. We will do a weekly speed test.
