Eagle Class home learning
Spellings: In Year 6, children will be given the opportunity to choose their own spellings based on the phoneme of the week. Every Thursday, they will write these down on a piece of paper to take home and practise, and then they will test each other every Wednesday. They will be given some tie in school to practise as well.
Reading: Children are expected to read at home daily (at least 4 times a week), either independently or with an adult. Children will be asked to keep track of their reading in 'Reading Journals' (which they have not been given yet). More information will be given to children when they arrive.
SPaG/ reading comprehension: each week, a SPaG or reading comprehension activity will be set for the children on a Thursday which will be due back the following Wednesday. This will be posted on the school website and Seesaw. This task should take about 20 minutes to complete.
Maths: Maths home learning will be set on a new platform: MyMaths.
Brain Builders: these will be set once a term, based on a topic we are covering in school. Children should be able to complete the Brain Builder tasks independently.
Homework is an important part of preparing children for secondary school and beyond; it helps to teach them self-discipline, responsibility for their own learning and managing their time effectively. From this year, homework (except reading!) will be non-compulsory. If the choice is TV/video games and homework, we would love for you to chose homework. However, we would much prefer children outside, playing sports, Brownies, Scouts, spending time as a family, cooking, visiting famous landmarks, outdoor experiences, etc. Choosing to complete the homework tasks over other, potentially more tempting, activities will give children the opportunity to practise self-discipline and time management, in preparation for the next stage in their academic journey.
If you would like extra homework, we would be happy to recommend books/resources to buy or websites to use. If you have any questions/ concerns, please contact me via the school office!
