Homework expectations for Year 6
The children are now aware of the expectations, and whilst I do not want the demands to be too onerous on the children, or to interfere with family life, there is a reality that their time in Year 6 must adequately prepare them to meet the increasing demand of secondary education.
Homework will be set weekly and due in the following day. Children are also expected to practise the fact/facts they are given regularly- either in their book or verbally with an adult. If they practise verbally, their homework book should be signed and dated. Little and often (daily) has the biggest impact on progress.
Reading logs must be filled in by the children and signed three times a week by an adult. Children have been asked to read an age-appropriate book daily for thirty minutes to increase their reading stamina.
Spelling patterns will be given on Thursdays and spelling sentences due the following Thursday. Spelling will be assessed through the child's writing or through a test after the point of learning.
One piece of vocabulary or English homework (grammar or punctuation based to practise skills taught in class) will be set weekly
