Expectations for home learning.
All home learning should be of a high standard and all teachers will follow the schools home learning policy if it is not.
Your child is expected to read at home every week four times and return their reading record to their teacher on a Friday.
They are expected to complete times tables practice weekly using TT rock stars or written in a notebook/ on paper to practice.
Your child is also expected to practice their spelling at home weekly and get over 8/10 in each spelling test.
New Home Learning Resources!
During our period of being at home it is really important that we keep up with our learning. We will therefore be posting the work that we would have been doing in class on the website so that you can have a go at it at home. It is important that you attempt ever activity.
Below is the main pieces of work which we would have covered today and tomorrow. Good Luck!

Additional home learning activities available online and further suggestions:
Please see our updated Useful Websites Year 6
Remember that there are also so excellent lessons and material on the Oak National Academy website which will support your learning.
Don't forget to keep up your reading as well. Have a look at Oxford Owl, a FREE eBook Library.
In Year 6, children benefit from fluency in times tables so we would encourage for them to practise regularly at home.
The children are able to practice using their school TT rock stars login at home. Either on the website: www.TTrockstars.com or by downloading the app onto a smart device from the appstore.
In their Maths SATS, children are expected to complete an arithmetic paper in 30 minutes (36 questions = less than a minute per question!) so children would also benefit from regular practise of their calculation methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Examples of this can be found at: www.theschoolrun.com

We would encourage children to write freely at home and practise their range of punctuation, grammar and spellings.
Spellings are sent home (normally) every week and children should be practising them ready for their tests by writing them into interesting sentences.
Here are some ideas to get your child writing.
Along with encouraging your child to read for pleasure, here are reading comprehensions that can be downloaded.
Please note that the answers are on the last page of each reading.
Whilst it is important to listen to your child read, at this age, it is also important to be questioning your child's understanding. Here are a list of questions you could use to ask your child as they are reading:
- What do you remember so far?
- What do you think might happen next?
- Who are the key characters in the book?
- Why is (character X) feeling that way?
- Why did the author use (word X) and why?
- Can you find some amazing adjectives/verbs/adverbs?
- Why do you think the character did that?
- What other stories have you read that are similar?
- What period is the story set in and why do you think that?
