Homework expectations for Year 6
The children are all well 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.
Please choose one of the following time periods ( 1901 -1910, 1910 - 1919, 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s or 1990s) and research what you feel is the biggest achievement from this decade. You may present your homework in any way that you wish
Your homework must be completed and in school on Monday 9th December
Homework will be set weekly and due in the following day.
Homework will be set weekly and due in the following day. Children are 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.
