EQUIPMENT

  • Water bottle every day
  • PE kit every day (normal days for PE are Thursday and Friday)
  • Apron for art work
  • Children may also bring a healthy snack of fresh or dried fruit to eat at break time

 

HOMEWORK

Reading – it is expected that your child reads at home daily for at least 10 minutes

Spelling – learning the spellings daily as well as understanding the meaning of words really supports children with their confidence when writing.  These will be set on Friday and tested through a dictation the following Friday.

Times tables – children need to have quick recall of their times table facts.  Times tables need to be practiced daily.

Revision – in addition to spellings, reading and times tables year six children will have some revision tasks to complete weekly.  There will be one English and one Mathematics task.  These are a consolidation of work completed in school during the week so the children should be independent when working on these.
