 Year 6 Homework

Please see your child's pack weekly for the work that has been set.


Dear Year 6 parents,

As the spring term approaches there are a few pieces of information we need to update you on.

At school we will be continuing to support each child with targeted class support, intervention groups for all children at different points in the school week and a highly supportive classroom environment. Furthermore, we have dedicated revision time for all children to consolidate learning in the ICT suite and continue to provide a broad and balanced curriculum each week. For the spring term the focus is on preparing the children for the future, SATS and the expectation of an increased workload.

In order to support each child with the increased workload that secondary school entails and the expectation for SATS we will be setting more home learning each week.

Each week we will now send home a piece of maths, SPAG and writing/reading home to complete. These pieces will be sent out on a Friday and be collected in every Wednesday as usual. The weekly spelling tests will still take place. The SPAG and Maths answers will be emailed every week in the Y6 parent’s weekly email. The expectation is for you and your child to mark these together and for each child to see the areas they need to improve. We will also be looking over the home learning logs. If your child struggles to complete the home learning at all or struggles with the content, Miss Davis and Mrs Marinho will be available for all children during Tuesday break time.

Further to home learning we ask that each child is provided with the CGP 10 minute workout booster books for morning activities in the Spring term. These books will be used for morning activities and will be used to feedback and share in class. Each child will need the Maths, English and grammar guides.

 Year 6 General Class Work/Information

Year 6 are learning about......

English

In English we have been exploring the text The Lion and the Unicorn. We have drawn inspiration from this in order to write our own historical narratives. 

Each week we will be given words of the week. These words are ambitious, challenging and our teachers will try to spot them in our work. Our aim is to become a master of ambitious vocabulary!

Our class reader is Goodnight Mister Tom. If you wish to bring a copy to school, please do!

Maths

In maths this half term we are revising our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction.

 

Topic

Our topic for the term is World War Two. We will learn about the war, the causes and how it was fought. We will also learn about evacuees, rationing,  blackouts and much more! 

Reading Questions

This bank of questions is grouped into different areas of reading.  The questions are useful for helping your child to think about the text they are reading in a more detailed way. It is by no means an exhaustive list but can provide as a useful starting point for helping adults to question a child about their reading.

See attached sheet.
