In reading we will be continuing to read our class novels and working on retrieving. recording and presenting information from non-fiction, distinguishing between statements of fact and opinion and identifying how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning.

 Homework 

Year 6 Homework Expectation

Essential Core Skills – Maths - once a week

Each week, on Fridays, one sheet of practice work will be set in maths. This work will relate to the work completed in class and will have been identified by the teacher as an essential skill in need of practice. The completed work should be brought into class by the following Friday, when it will be checked and marked together.

 

Accelerated Reader – personal reading – 20 minutes per day 

The Accelerated Reader programme recommends that children read for twenty minutes every day. The children should record their independent reading in their Reading Record Books, which will be monitored by class teachers. As part of this programme, the children can also be read to by a parent or family member. This too can be recorded in Reading Record Books if you wish. Children should ensure that their reading books are in school EVERY DAY as they will be needed in class.

 

Spelling Lists for Years 3,4,5 and 6 – regular and on-going

On a Thursday, children will receive weekly spellings to practise at home. These will be reviewed on Wednesday.

 

Times Tables – regular and on-going 

The children need to know their tables quickly and mixed up. Regular practice is essential.

 

Topic Projects

Each term, one open-ended creative project will be set. This will relate to the topic that is being studied in class that term. The children usually have approximately six weeks to complete work for this project, which is then shared with the year band in a special assembly.

We are really looking forward to seeing some beautiful work from you this half term.
