Children in Year 6 are expected to read a minimum of 3 times each week. The book they have read with the page range should be written in their Home Reader books and signed by an adult.
You will also receive weekly spellings and times tables to practise in preparation for a test each Friday. These spellings and times tables will also be practised as part of our work in class.
Children will be given homework every Friday and this is expected to be completed and handed in on the following Thursday. Homework will be English and Maths work. If your child has any questions please come and see myself or Mrs Slater before Thursday.
We follow the No-Nonsense Spelling Scheme in school. Each week, we will learn and practise a different spelling rule in school and we will receive a test each Friday. Please help by practising these spellings at home if possible.
Following parental feedback and some confusion regarding the procedure for bringing the plastic book wallets into school, the KS2 staff have decided to standardise the system so that all children in Years 3 to 6 are following the same guidelines.
Therefore, from this week (21.09.2020), homework will be sent home on Fridays to be returned the following Thursday. Plastic wallets with reading book and reading journal can be brought into school each day. The plastic wallets will be wiped down when brought into school in the morning and should be wiped down when returning home in the afternoon.
Mon-Fri: Plastic wallets with reading journal and reading book
Thursday: Homework and Learning Journal returned to school
Friday: Homework and Learning Journal sent home
I hope this clarifies the expectations for parents and thank you for your patience and cooperation whilst we have been endeavouring to implement an effective safe system.
