How to support your child at home:
Daily Reading – It’s really important that your child reads regularly, at least 3 times per week for at least 15 minutes. Please use the green reading record book to record comments and return to school every Friday. Record books will be checked, and where applicable changed, and given back out every Friday.
Spellings – Spellings will be given out weekly and will be tested every Friday. Please see the Year 5/6 statutory spelling list which is in addition to the weekly spellings. The national expectation is that children can spell all of those words by the end of Year 6 alongside the words learnt each week that follow a spelling pattern or rule.
Maths basic skills – Each week there will be the minimum expectation that children go onto TT Rockstars for at least 30 minutes as part of their ongoing homework. Children need to know all tables up to x12 and the related division facts as this knowledge feeds into a lot of the Y5/6 curriculum maths curriculum.
Things to remember:
- All homework is set on a Friday and is due in on Wednesday morning.
- PE is on Wednesday and Thursday - remember to wear your PE kit on these days.
- Please bring water bottles in daily.
