Homework continues to be an integral part of our learning experience in Year 6. All children are set homework tasks on a Friday, which are then to be handed in by the following Friday. Homework always includes a reading comprehension task, a maths-related task which links to learning in class that week, a grammar-related task which links to learning in class that week and 10 weekly spellings. Please also ensure that your child reads at home at LEAST 3 x weekly.
All children are expected to complete their homework. If a child fails to hand in their homework, it is expected they catch up on their work in their free time in school.
