We will also be sending home spellings every week, the test will always be the following Monday. Spellings can be accessed below through the spelling link.
Maths: Maths homework will be set every week linking to what children have been learning in class. This may be paper-based homework but could also take the form of being set on Freckle. Log ins will be in the children's reading records.
Grammar homework / Spellings / Reading
Children are expected to read every night where possible, with a minimum expectation of reading at least 4 nights. Children are to read and comment in their reading diaries what they have read etc and then quiz in class once hey have finished. If children want to read a book alongside their school reading book they can do so. Reading diaries will be checked every week for gold stars. There should be a minimum of 4 entries in the child's reading record, these records are checked in school every Tuesday. Year 6 children will begin to access an online reading platform called Reading Plus. The children are to log on to Reading Plus as this will help children with their reading and comprehension skills. Passwords are in children's reading diaries.
