Children in Year 6 receive daily Maths homework that will enable them to practise the 4 basic operations as well as apply these to reasoning questions. Daily literacy homework will focus on spelling, vocabulary and grammar. 

Each week, two pieces of homework are set for the children to complete (30 minutes each piece).Homework may be revision from a unit of work previously taught or it may be new learning for a unit or concept that will be followed up in class. All children will receive a piece of Maths or English each week (this will take no longer than 30 minutes to complete). They will also receive one piece from either Science, History, Geography, Art, DT, French, Computing or PSHE (these subjects will be rotated on a weekly basis).

Homework is handed out on a Thursday and due in the following Monday.
