Homework

Homework in year 6 you might think is really hard but it's really not . There are many different tasks throughout the year to complete . Some of them are really fun and some of them challenge the skills you have learnt. It is definitely clear to all year 6’s that overall the last bit of homework of the year is the most fun, the primary project. It is fun because you can do a twelve page write on whatever you want. If you haven't been creative yet , this is your time to shine!.



Every week you will be expected to - 
Research and learn spelling rules – this may be an online quiz
Read with an adult at least once 
Practice and learn times tables
Complete a vocabulary challenge
Complete a grammar challenge 
Complete an additional written or mathematical challenge – this may be in the form of an online quiz.
If there is more you wish to work on at home, there is a homework choice board at the back of this booklet. The children are able to choose which ones they complete – this section is optional. This section is only really used when you have finished the main homework tasks and you have nothing left to do . The tasks on this sheet can be as simple as being kind to someone . it really can help you be a lot more useful for later life.

Homework will be set on a Friday and due in on a Thursday
