Maths

Y6 Homework Books

We are unable to send homework home on a weekly basis or collect it back in so we have sent home the Y6 Maths Practice Questions book home.  At the end of each week, your child can reinforce their learning from class by completing the corresponding page or section in this book.  If they are struggling with a topic, please email or ask the child to let us know and we will provide additional lunchtime help to go over any of these areas.

Times Table Rock Stars

It is so important every child knows their times tables and can recall them at speed.  Times tables feed into many other areas of Maths we cover in Year 6.  Times Table Rock Stars is a fun way to practice and improve recall and speed of all their times tables and each child has an individual login.  We will be setting challenges and tasks on this platform throughout the year.  Regular practice on this is highly recommended.

 

 

Reading

We are still asking for your child to read at least 3 times a week at home.

School Reading Scheme

We are allowing the school reading scheme books to be taken home but on a limited basis.  Children should bring their books in to change on a Monday, where they will be stored before being returned to the shelves for the required time. New books will be issued later in the week.  The Reading Record can still be completed but should not be brought into school.

Oxford Owl

If your child needs additional reading practice or completes their scheme book, they can access online books using the following link.  https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ 

Then go to MY CLASS LOGIN

They have a wide range of books to choose from suitable for their reading age and ability.

 

Spelling

Each Friday, the children in Miss Woodall's and Mrs Ledger's English groups will be given 10 new spellings to learn.  They will look at them within the lesson and work on patterns and sounds.  They will not be able to bring these home but we ask that they copy them into their Spelling Record Book at home to practice them for their test the following Friday. 

The Spellings for Half Term 2 can be found here.
