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!
You worked very hard on your CGP revision books last half-term, and this supported their SATs revision very well. For the final half-term, homework will focus on spellings, regular reading and the crucial task of learning the songs, lines and staging for the upcoming Y6 performance. Even if you do not have a speaking part, you still need to know all of the songs, and it is important to know who needs to be where and when, as well as the order of the performance, so everyone needs to be working on this!
