Homework

Homework Information

Children in Y6 should aim to engage in quality reading time at home at least five times per week.  It is also essential that times tables are worked on and learned regularly.  Rapid recall of times tables facts up 12x12 greatly assists in many areas of the Maths curriculum.

English and Maths homework will be set weekly for completion the following week, however this may change on a rare occurrence.  Additional topic, Science or research homework may also be set.

It is, however,  important to note that homework shouldn't be taking hours.  If there is any kind of issue at all then please do let me know as soon as possible.

Many thanks

Mr Redfern

Friday 16th October - Thursday 22nd October 2020

 

Maths: Please complete the activities in your homework book.  These can also be found below.  Work on addition / subtraction using effective and appropriate strategies.

We have also completed "Daily Count" activities on the x8 times table every day this week, so additional chanting / mapping / unpicking / pattern spotting would be fantastic to aid fluency.

English: Please complete the activities in your homework book.  These include spelling work on Spelling Shed, a spag.com activity on pronouns and paragraphs and editing and improving grammar relating to direct speech within a paragraph of text.

Reading: Please continue to read as much as possible.  Remember, those that read quality texts regularly and build vocabulary by being inquisitive about the meaning of new language will achieve the most.

 

Year 6's current reading quiz average is: 94.2%

Year 6's current average reading engaged time is: 37mins

 

Congratulations to the 21 children who earned points this week for their commitment to regular reading and handing in their Reading Record consistently.  You are all brilliant.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Mr Redfern.

Friday 9th October - Friday 16th October

I hope Y6 all enjoyed Fluffy Friday! :-)

Maths: Please complete the recap questions on formal written methods for addition and subtraction. We have worked on this in class during the week so all should be well versed with the requirements.

We have also completed "Daily Count" activities on the x7 times table every day this week, so additional chanting / mapping / unpicking / pattern spotting would be fantastic to aid fluency.

English: English homework will be set on Monday.

Reading: Please continue to read as much as possible.  Remember, those that read quality texts regularly and build vocabulary by being inquisitive about the meaning of new language will achieve the most.

Friday 18th September - Thursday 24th September

Maths: Please complete the recap questions on Place Value work completed so far this year.  Some of the questions will require an investigation into the different possibilities and will require a deeper level of thought.

An optional challenge has also been made available for those that wanted it.

English: Please complete the grammar activities on Education City.  There's also a learn screen on determiners to round off our focus on them.

Reading: Please continue to read as much as possible.  Remember, those that read quality texts regularly and build vocabulary by being inquisitive about the meaning of new language will achieve the most.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mr Redfern.

Friday 11th September - Thursday 17th September

Maths: Please complete the activities set on Education City.  I have set a Learn Screen activity to help the class revise Roman numerals to 100 (Y4 objective). Please view this before playing the activity titled "IV the Win".

English: Please complete the SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) sheet that has been glued into books.  We have discussed and use determiners in class this week during SPaG lessons with me.  

Reading: Please continue to read as much as possible.  Remember, those that read quality texts regularly and build vocabulary by being inquisitive about the meaning of new language will achieve the most.

 

Homework will increase a little as the term moves along.  I'm really keen not to overburden children or parents as we're still in the "settling back into school life" phase.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Mr Redfern.

Friday 11th September - Thursday 17th September
