Homework
Your child has been given a reading journal in order to record their reading, summarise what they have read and complete reading activities at home.

They will continue to use Mathletics for their maths homework. 

Your child will also take a spelling activity or words home to learn. We recognise that some children find spelling very tricky. The aim of this part of the homework is to allow them to become familiar with the spelling rules and patterns they are studying in school so they can feel confident using them in their writing. If you have any concerns about the spellings or spelling games sent home, please see your class teacher.

If you would like to do more additional Maths and English work with your child, these are the main objectives we are covering this term: statistics, position and direction, perimeter, area, volume, ratio, algebra and general arithmetic.

English:
Maths:

Reading
One of the things we are working on this year is trying to get our children to love reading by recognising that the key to reading is:
Practice, Perseverance and Pleasure
Reading anything to and with your child is invaluable. It could be a sports website, cookery books, labels in the supermarket, a favourite picture book, newspapers or their reading book. It should not be a chore but a lovely thing to do and we recognise that this might not always mean the school reading book. We may send home books your child really loves to look at even though it might be too hard to read independently. Children are allowed to bring a book from home or a library and use this as their school reading book.

Please write in your child’s reading journal about what reading you have been doing with them or what they have read to you.

If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to your class teacher.
Yours sincerely,
Year 6 team
Ms Bazuaye and Ms Sohota
