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 the following work:
spellings to learn at home
maths homework book (fortnightly)
literacy homework linked to grammar, reading comprehension or a project.
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.
