In 6ZP, we understand that homework is an important part of Y6, in terms of ensuring that we are as ready as we can be for the SATs in May and secondary school next year!
Weekly spellings are tested and set weekly with new spellings thus stuck in reading records ready for the weekend. You have 20 spellings a week in the Y6 format, giving you opportunities to explore Y5/6 National Curriculum spelling patterns and word lists, as well as recapping those from Y3/4.
You have personal reading diaries which should be in your reading wallets with their book-banded school reading book and be brought into school every day. You should read with an adult as much as possible and record this in these diaries, in addition to taking time to record your own independent reading experiences, reading at least 5 times a week. You also have your own personal reading rewards booklets, within which you're working towards collecting 60 parent/carer signatures for reading at home in order to win a book from our Y6 selection, so get reading as some children have already claimed their first prize!
Homework operates a little differently in Y6 in order to ensure that we are best prepared for SATs and secondary school. We have been very lucky to be able to provide each of you with your own personal set of CGP revision books. Each week, we will carefully select a reading comprehension, a maths task and a spelling or grammar task from these books for you to to complete for the following week, linking these to our learning in school wherever possible. Homework is then due in by Wednesday. In order to support us in understanding where and why we are going wrong, as well as how we can improve in the future, we will be marking and reviewing these weekly tasks together, so it really is crucial that homework is completed and brought in.
