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.
The online homework is always set one week before the hand-in date.
Spellings to learn at home. These are set via SpellingFrame (link), where children should use their login (in planners) to access the weekly list set for them. Spelling Frame allows children to play games to practise the list before taking the test. They can take the test more than once, but should take it at least once before the following Monday.
Literacy homework linked to grammar/reading will be set online and you should follow the dated link below to complete this work. Sign your child's planner to show that they have completed this each week. Where there is different homework for Miss King's group, it will be made clear in the links.
Reading daily, and aloud to an adult at least 3 times each week. Please sign your child's planner on the dates that they read to you. We will expect children to have at least three signatures per week to show they have read aloud.
Maths is set each week, but the children have a fortnight to complete it as we alternate between setting online via MyMaths and using the numbered Maths homework books. [MyMaths link]
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.
