Each week, Year 6 will be sent home homework in a range of subjects.
If you complete your homework successfully then there will be a Homework Reward on the last day of each term - previously this has included a cinema with pizza/snacks.
Currently, Year 6 have the following homework days:
* Comprehension/Maths/SPAG - sent out Thursday for the following Tuesday.
* Reading - daily for at least 20 minutes = five times a week.
* Times Tables - practising daily.
What happens if you can not do your homework?
If you can't do your homework at home then the door is always open for you to come in to school and do it. Likewise, if you are unsure of a question, come in and see your class teacher before/after school or at break/lunch time. We are here to help!
Remember Homework Club takes place on Thursday after school open to all children.

Maths Made Easy
We ask that Year 6 are reading for a minimum of 20 minutes each day - this can be your school ZPD reading book or any other time of text - a newspaper, magazine, website article or your own reading book.
This can be independent reading - without reading to an adult - although if possible then please read to an adult at least once a week.
We ask that reading is completed at least five times over the week - Reading Records are checked weekly on a Friday and Book Club will take place on Friday lunch to provide extra opportunities for this in school.
Once you have completed a school reading book with a ZPD sticker, then you can complete the Reading Quiz to gain points on the Accelerated Reader website here:

PE for Year 6 will be every Monday afternoon in the PPA slot. It is expected that pupils wear the correct school kit. All earrings need to be removed (due to Derbyshire County Council policy we can no longer provide tape to cover them) plus a bobble be provided to tie back long hair. In colder months, pupils may wish to bring a tracksuit. Please could you also ensure all items of P.E kit are clearly labelled with your child's name. Thank you.
We will keep you up to date with reminders via ParentHub throughout the year. If you change your number, please let the school office know.
Any parent help is greatly appreciated within school. If you are interested in helping within school or on school trips then please do not hesitate to contact the school office with your up to date details.
