Year 6

Welcome!

Dear Parents/ Carer

Welcome to Year 6. I am so excited to be back in Year 6 working with you and your child over this next school year. Year 6 is a fun-packed and busy year, with lots to learn and enjoy. At times, Year 6 will be challenging and hard work. It is important that your child embraces the journey, which will help prepare them for secondary school next September. I will be with them every step of the way to ensure that they are fully prepared for this important stage of their lives.

 

Please feel free to get in touch with me at any point throughout the year; I am happy to help in whatever way I can.

Year 6  Homework

Autumn 2 and Spring Term

 

Each week the children will be set homework to complete from the CGP Sats Busters 10 minutes books.

In addition to these tasks, the children will still continue to receive weekly spellings to learn. 

We do not have spare copies of the CPG books therefore the children are responsible for their own books.

Please see weekly homework planners below.

 

 

 

Autumn 

In Year 6 regular homework is set. Homework is set on Friday each week and must be handed in on, or before, the Wednesday of the following week. The following activities are set each week:

 

  • Weekly spellings
  • Mental arithmetic questions covering the four calculation methods, fractions, decimals and percentages
  • A short text and reading comprehension questions
  • In addition, this term we would like all children to regularly practise their times tables using Times tables Rocks Stars https://ttrockstars.com . Children should know their individual log ins/ passwords. 

 

 

 

Reading information

In Year Six, we encourage independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read at home every day. It is your child's responsibility to choose either a book from home or the classroom to have in school. We recommend that they choose a variety of genre. They are required to record the details of what they are reading in their reading records. In order to succeed at school, children need to be able to read fluently, have varied and rich vocabulary and fully comprehend what they have read.
