Year 6 will be working hard to prepare for their SATs in May but in addition to
this we will be learning about relationships and how babies are made in SRE,
electricity in Science. We are even finding time to go on a trip to Whitby linked to
our work on Dracula in English!

What do they get, when do they get it and when does it need to be handed in?
Every week, for their homework, your child will be expected to complete:
- Speedy Spider
- One of the #30Things challenges
- SATs Revision books.
We expect all children to read for 10 minutes - 3 times a week. You need to write the date, the name of the book and what pages they have read with a short comment on how they have done in their reading record and this needs to be handed in once a week.
It would also be hugely beneficial for the children to work on their times tables 3 times a week. This will give them a great advantage when they take their SATs.
Children will be expected to complete set pages in their revision guides each week and we will
alternate between Maths and English. These books will be handed out on a Friday and we ask them to be handed back in the following Thursday. Spelling tests will be every other week on a Friday.
If you have any questions about the exciting changes to homework then
please speak to a member of Year 6 or to our Deputy Head, Miss Pashby.
These activities are very important in helping your child improve at school
and we hope you will support us by helping your child at home.
