Maths

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

WRITING

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.

A First Visit

The Ascent

Film Review

Letter to your MP

The Titanic

READING

Along with encouraging your child to read for pleasure, here are reading comprehensions that can be downloaded.

Fiction Reading

Non Fiction Reading

Poetry

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?
