Homework and Spellings - Whole School Policy

Year 6 Homework Guidance 

 

Reading

Your child should always have a reading book in his/her book bag. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible. This doesn't always have to be their school reading book. Reading any type of texts such as magazines, comics, menus, street signs etc. is just as valuable.

If you listen to your child read his/her school reading book, please make a comment (positive if possible) in their reading diary.

 

Your child receives homework every Friday.  It is due back the following Wednesday.  Homework is not optional - every child must complete it. If you have questions about homework, please speak to me or write a note in the homework book. An example homework sheet (with the homework due that week) is sent home termly.   Maths and English homework will also be set each week and some of this will be online homework. 

 

Spellings

Each week your child will have spellings to learn. Please help your child to learn their weekly spellings.  Pupils will have extra copies of their spellings (either weekly or termly - depending on the group they are in) and they can use these to help learn for their tests.  Pupils will also receive a spelling word list with Y3/4 and Y5/6 Statutory words on. Please help your child learn to spell these as well.  We will be having spelling lessons in school to support pupils with learning spelling rules and patterns.
