Homework

Homework will be set weekly for the children. School will provide your child with CGP revision guides for reading, grammar and maths. This will help to prepare your child for their SATs assessments that take place in May.

One task from either the reading, maths or grammar will be set each week. 

Spellings be set weekly for children to work on - these will be linked to our writing work and will include words from the Year 5/6 statutory word list. See the spelling section for further information.

Reading is expected at least four times a week and the children will also be given opportunity within the school week for independent reading. We encourage as much reading as possible - even 5 minutes! 

Times tables are a vital part of supporting children with their learning in maths so again please can we encourage children to practice these as much as possible!

Homework will be set on a Monday and is required for the following Monday.

Homework

Maths and English homework

The children will have weekly Maths and English tasks set. For Maths, these tasks could range from a Sumdog challenge, contest or assessment to written SAT style questions or word problems. For English, these could range from a Sumdog reading or writing challenge or assessment to a written task or comprehension SAT style questions. 

Both sets of homework will be set on a Monday and will be reviewed the following Monday. 

Your child has been provided with an English and a Maths homework book. They can use these books to stick in sheets or use as a way of recording their homework. This is particularly helpful when working out maths calculations. For some pieces of homework, we will be using Showbie to enable the children to upload their tasks once they have completed them. 

Spellings and Reading

Along with this homework, the children should be practising their spellings and reading as much as they can at home, which will support both their reading ability and their writing. 

Sumdog

You can also access Sumdog where there will be challenges and competitions set with the focus of specific learning objectives.
