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!
In order to help the children settle back into school as smoothly and easily as possible, we will be simplifying the Y6 homework for the first term. As usual they will be set weekly spellings and will have their own logins for Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars, which they are encouraged to use regularly each week.
Additionally, this year for the first time we have a new version of 'Reading Records' for our Y6s, which closely resemble the planners that they will have as they move on to secondary school. We encourage children to read as much as possible and record it in these. To support them with this, our Y6 classrooms are filled with high-quality fiction and non-fiction texts that we are sure the children will be desperate to read and will really enjoy! Reading is incredibly important and we are passionate in Y6 about the pleasure that can be found in a good book! A weekly 'Reader of the Week' will be chosen based upon engagement with reading tasks in the classroom and with these diaries and reading at home. More info on this to follow in September!
