Our Weekly Homework
Y6’s weekly homework consists of: Arithmetic, Grammar and Spellings.
There is the option of a paper copy of homework and all pieces of homework will also be available on Showbie in the homework folders too. We like to provide the choice to the children, help reduce printing to save more trees and make it accessible.
Your child’s Showbie log in is available as a QR code in their Reading diary and the username and password are also featured there too.
Weekly Maths Homework
Arithmetic homework will be set on a Friday, consisting of a range of questions linked to areas covered in Maths so far this year.
We will be predominantly focusing on the 4 operations. This sheet is available on Showbie and your child can bring home a paper copy if they wish.
Weekly Spellings & Grammar Homework
Spelling homework will be set on a Monday and your child will be tested the following Monday.
The spelling list is in your child’s Spelling book and also on Showbie incase they forget to bring home their book. We encourage Y6 to practise their Spellings by writing sentences which include the words. It’s also valuable for your child to look at definitions too to broaden their understanding of the spellings. There will also be challenges available on Spelling Shed.
Grammar homework (set on a Monday and handed in the following Monday) is usually a sheet of tasks focused on developing children’s ability to retrieve previous learning and build on their memory of Grammar features. This will also be available on Showbie.
We have recently watched and discussed this video in class.
