Year 6 Homework

19 May 2017

Posted on Thursday 18 May 2017 by Mrs Taylor

For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is creative and is due in on Thursday 25 May. In preparation for our whole school themed week next week, Staying Safe, children should consider the following question by showing what they already know.

How can I keep safe?

Children should think about the situations where they need to keep safe and who might help them to stay safe. This could be done in any creative way.

  • A story
  • A poem
  • Instructions
  • A comic strip
  • An advert
  • An interview
  • A game
  • Scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

The homework will be reviewed as part of the themed week learning.

Practice Makes Perfect

In the run-up to SATs, Year 6 have more personalised homework which allows them to practise specific skills they feel they need to improve on. Each child has a Maths and a Punctuation and Grammar homework which they have requested.

We’ll go through these in groups on Thursday 04 May and, if there are any things they’re finding particularly difficult, they need to bring it in before this date so we can look at it together.

This week’s Practice Makes Perfect is due on Thursday 30 March.

Choose a chapter of your guided reading novel and write five reading comprehension questions for a friend to try and answer. See whether you can write different types of question:

  • fact finding
  • inference (How do you know…)
  • word meaning (Find and copy…)
  • ordering (Number the events, 1 -5)
  • yes, no, maybe – three mark answer
  • prediction

This week’s homework is Creative and is due on Thursday 30 March.

I can see things from other people’s points of view.

This has been our SEAL statement this week and, I think, is a really important one. Have a think about why it is important that we can do this and imagine what it would be like to live in a world when nobody saw things from other people’s points of view. As always, Creative homework can be anything – don’t forget, only use one page of your homework book.

Maybe you could:

  • Write  a story or create a comic strip of a world where people don’t see things from other people’s view.
  • Create a mind map of all of the reasons why this is important.
  • Think of a situation where you have need, or would need, to do this and write a letter to the other person about what their point of view might be.
  • Think of a situation and give all of the different points of view people might have.
  • Create a quiz which asks us how we’d feel in different situations.

This week, the children have a reading comprehension and a Maths test which we’ll go through together on Thursday 23 March. These are the two tests which children are finding the most difficult and making silly mistakes on so it would be helpful to them if they could go through it with an adult to discuss difficult parts or identify errors made.

This week, Year 6 have a mini Maths test and a mini SPaG test for their Practice Makes Perfect homework.

The children could complete it independently, with you or a bit of both by doing it themselves then going through it together. Make sure they make note of anything they’re struggling with as we’ll discuss this as a class in our homework review on Thursday 09 March.

This week’s Talk Time homework is linked to a visitor we’ve got next week.

How do rollercoasters work?

Going to theme parks is also a great form of entertainment today so it links to our Time Travel – Entertainment topic. Many of us love them but why and how are they made? Discuss this as a family, with friends, over dinner or in the car and be ready to join in our class discussion on Thursday 09 March.

How can you help your group to work well together?

Discuss ideas over dinner, in the car, walking to school and make a couple of notes for our class discussion on Thursday 02 March.

From now on, Year 6 will have Practice Makes Perfect homework each week in the lead up to SATs. The children have a ten minute SPaG test to have a go at. However, it doesn’t have to be completed in ten minutes and they can discuss it with you. We’ll then go through this in our homework review on Thursday 02 March.

They also have a Maths activity page which starts off with some arithmetic questions (which is the first Maths test they’ll do) before going on to more problem solving style questions. Again, we’ll go through this together in the homework review on Thursday 03 March.
