Homework

Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due to be returned by Wednesday. There will be a large emphasis on homework in year 6 this year, children will often be required to a text from our SATs reading text books and complete questions from what they have read.  Homework shall usually consist of spellings, a maths activity, a grammar task and a reading task.

Spellings for Autumn term 1 are attached below. 

 

Other points of note

We ask that children read every day and input this into their reading journal.

PE this year will be on a Thursday afternoon
