Homework

In Year 6 the children will usually be set weekly homework. This will consist of one piece of English/Topic homework, one piece of maths and a mental maths task. Homework will be stuck into your child's homework exercise book and will come home on Fridays.
 
Sometimes the homework may involve completing an online task such as using the schools MyMaths website. Occasionally, the children may be asked to complete a longer project.
 
As part of their homework, the children are also expected to be regularly learning times tables and reading their school reading book at home.
