Weekly homework

Each week the homework set will reflect what we have been doing in class. This will give you a chance to practice what you have learnt independently. Please try to learn the spellings set too. Anyone who would like a 'Homework book'may request one at school. Homework should include reading every night. I have also given links to sites which will help you practice core skills to make you SATs ready. I will keep adding to these as we go through the year.

 

Core skills practice:  Want to be sure you are totally SATs ready? Visit these links and work through the activities.

If you would like to get some quick practice materials for the children to revise skills at home I would highly recommend the CGP books on Amazon on the following link:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_6?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=year+6+sats+revision+books+2017&sprefix=Year+6%2Cundefined%2C384&crid=21UAUQFWQQVB2&rh=n%3A266239%2Ck%3Ayear+6+sats+revision+books+2017

They contain excellent little tasks to keep practicing core skills and are very good value for money.

Please read every day! 10 - 20 minutes. Talk about your book to someone; what is happening? What may happen next? Do you like the story? Look up difficult words, jot down their meaning and try to use them in your own writing.
