Year 6 : Blog items

Year 6 children need to:

  •          Read for at least 10 minutes every night. Parents must then sign the reading record.
  •          Learn the spelling list provided on a Monday ready to be tested on Friday
  •          Complete other homework provided –numeracy and literacy homework will be sent out on a Monday and will be due back in on a Friday.

In addition to this, please ensure your child is dressed in full school uniform each day including plain black shoes/trainers and no jewellery. Year 6 will have P.E. on a Monday and FridayPlease ensure that a full P.E. kit is in school on a Monday morning which will then remain in school until half term.


Your child should understand what they have to do before they go home. It will be their responsibility to check before they go home. Don’t give them any help unless absolutely necessary. If you have had to help your child, please write on the homework.

Please be careful with the maths; let your child show you the methods we use.

Please allow your child to be more responsible, by allowing them to give reasons why the occasional homework is not done.

Learning Homework

Make sure your child has plenty of practice learning times tables and other important Maths facts. These learning homeworks are really important. If a child knows  these facts they are much more confident and relaxed with their work than those who haven’t ; these children know they will not be able to do  the work before they even begin.


Please hear your child read each night (have a night off at the weekend).

To keep up with the group they are in, they will need to read for around ten minutes every night. If they want to read more please give them something different to read. At this age it is very important for your child to start reading a wide range of suitable material that grabs their interest.

Ask them questions to make sure of their understanding.

Please sign the reading records each night and your comments will be very helpful.
