Homework

Welcome to the Year 5/6 homework page.  Homework is handed out every Friday and it is expected to be returned on the following Wednesday.

Spring

There is no homework grid to be completed this term.

Every Friday, children will be given maths and English homework, which will be stuck into their homework books. Homework is due in on the Wednesday. If children would like some support with their homework in school, they can attend homework club on a Monday or Tuesday lunchtime in the library. The homework will be marked together, to deepen children’s understanding.

Year 6 will also be given science revision homework.

Year 5 will continue to be tested on their SMIRF targets each week.  Year 6 will need to continue to practice their SMIRFs, as these key skills will be applied throughout lessons, however they will not be formally tested.  Daily multiplication and division recall activities will be completed.

Spellings – expectations remain the same as in the Autumn term.

It is expected that children spend at least 30 minutes a night learning their new spellings, SMIRF targets and reading a wide variety of text types.

Children may additionally be given maths, literacy or science activities which consolidate the learning that has taken place in the classroom.  If there are any issues with these activities, children are expected to ask their teacher for help prior to the deadline.  Every Monday and Tuesday lunchtime, a homework clubis provided so that children can be supported.

Every Wednesday children are given a set of new spellings.  It is expected that these are taken home to learn in readiness for testing on the following Wednesday.  Children are required to be able to explain what the new spellings mean and be able to use them successfully in a sentence.

SMIRFS are tested on a fortnightly basis.  Therefore children are expected to focus on their specific targets and improve the speed of the recall of these mathematical facts.

It is expected that children spend at least 30 minutes a night learning their new spellings, SMIRF targets and reading a wide variety of text types.
