Children in Y5/6 have several pieces of homework to complete, which are spread out throughout the week. We would expect that, in Year 5/6, they should spend approximately 30 minutes per night on spellings, times tables, MyMaths, maths homework books, literacy homework, or their project; in addition to daily reading. The class teachers will set and check work.
Spellings to learn at home (set online; see below)
Literacy homework linked to grammar/reading (set online; see below)
Reading daily (aloud to an adult, at least 3 times per week)
MyMaths (fortnightly) link
Maths homework book (fortnightly)
*NEW: Children now have an individual login for Spelling Frame. Please use this to log in and play the games to help learn spellings.
Miss King's group have their own list to practice: you must log in to access this!
Please sign your child's planner to show when they have read out loud to an adult at home. The expectation is that children will have at least three signatures per week.
If a pupil does not hand their homework in on time, they will be given an extra day to complete it. If it is still not brought in, they will be given the opportunity to complete the work at break time.
There will be two homework projects per year and these will replace the children's usual literacy homework.
