Year 6 Area

In Year 6, we endeavour to provide a friendly, caring, learning environment where all children are valued, included and supported.

We aim to provide a stimulating and exciting approach to the curriculum, allowing children to develop as individuals and reach their full potential.


Year 6 Homework

Maths homework will be set using Mathletics. If your child is having any issues accessing Mathletics please contact your child's class teacher.

Children should be reading at least 20 minutes per day and recording it in their reading diary. They should record the title of the book, the pages they have read and a few sentences about what they are reading. They could summarise the main points, make a prediction or comment on a new event or character for example. Please refer to the back pages of the home learning diary for tips on how to support your child when reading at home with them.

For homework this half term, Year 6 will be studying the following books:

Bloom - Until I met Dudley by Roger Mc Gough

Eliot - Carrie's War by Nina Bawden

Silverstein - There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom by Louis Sachar

Zephaniah - Cloudbusting by Malorie Blackman


Both pieces of homework should take no longer than one hour to complete.


Homework is to be completed on Google Classroom.
