The children in Y5/6 will 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, timestables, mymaths, maths homework books, literacy homework or their project; in addition to daily reading.
The class teachers will set and check the following work:
spellings to learn at home
literacy homework linked to grammar, reading or a project
reading daily (to an adult at least 3 times per week)
maths homework book (fortnightly)
Spellings and literacy will be set online - please see the links and dates below here
There will be two homework projects per year and these will replace the children's usual literacy homework.
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.
Homework will be set from Monday 28th September.
