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

Mrs Stone
