Class 6 Homework
In Class 6 the pupils are expected to:
- Read their school book or another book of their choosing every day at home for around ten to twenty minutes. During this time please discuss the way we read punctuation as well as words, how bold or italic words are read differently. Look for how advanced punctuation is used. For example, speech marks, brackets, commas, apostrophes etc. It is very important that adults discuss these things with their child as they are not likely to notice them on their own. Reading should increase to include regular sustained periods so that children develop the habit of ‘getting into a good book’. (Reading a few pages every few days inhibits this).
- The homework set will include spellings to learn, and for their writing, pick eight of these spellings and write a sentence for each one. This helps children understand the meaning of the words they are learning to spell. These sentences should also be correctly punctuated and neatly written in their homework books. There are also appropriate punctuation and grammar activities set, these will either be completed in the homework book or on Purple Mash (see the link below).
- By year 6 it is expected that all children should have fluent recall of their times tables. Children forget them if they are not used, so a regular (daily if possible) quick and short tables quiz would help your child retain what they have learned. A great practice is Times Table Rock Stars, (see the link below). Maths homework will be linked to either the present or previous topics in class, to enable both consistent practise and consolidation of skills.
Homework will be set every Monday and is due on the Friday. If you are unable to complete the homework, please contact me prior to the due date. Late homework may not be marked before new homework is set.
