Year 6 Homework

Have a happy and healthy holiday

Posted on Sunday 24 July 2016 by Mr Roundtree

It’s the summer holidays at last, so there are no homework or spelling activities. Enjoy the holidays instead!

Does your child spend less time outdoors than prison inmates? A survey suggests three-quarters of children do, as the time spent playing in parks, woods and fields has shrunk dramatically due to lack of green spaces, digital technology and parents’ fears.

Research shows that playing outdoors promotes social skills, improves vision, reduces stress, increases attention span and provides vitamin D.

This week’s creative homework should be returned on Wednesday 20 July.

I can reflect on my time in primary school.

Children should reflect on their time in primary school and respond creatively. They could focus on friends they have made, what they will miss about Moortown Primary, what they have learnt, how they have changed over the course of their time at school, why they are proud to have attended Moortown Primary and anything else they wish to mention.

This is the last piece of homework that children will complete at primary school – make it a good one!

This week’s whole school homework involves completing the pupil health questionnaire sent home with your child/children.

 I can share my views about health.

This annual questionnaire helps us to find out pupil views on some of our key health issues at school. Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire by discussing these issues.

The questionnaire should be returned to your class teacher by Wednesday 20 July.

Think about how you can present this creatively. We’ll be having a look at everyone’s homework and then we’ll need to decide which one of our class’s homework we want to enter into the competition.

As you know, we have had to close school on Friday 01 July – Shadwell Lane had its water turned off.  For that reason, and because two classes are out of school today, there hasn’t been chance to set homework or spellings for this week.

Even though there is no set homework or spellings, please remember there are lots of things that the children can be doing to reflect on their learning from this week.

Again, I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the school closure.

This week’s Talk Time homework is due on Wednesday 29 June.

How do people I know use maths every day? 

We learn lots of maths at school and always try to relate it to real life. Children should speak to adults they know and find out how they use maths every day. Children might find out how an adult uses maths as part of their job or how they apply their maths knowledge around the house.

We will be discussing this next week so don’t forget to make a few notes to help inform your views.

I can complete a diary about my lifestyle.

The homework this week involves completing a health diary, for the next seven days, to use when completing the online My Health My School survey.  This will take place in school over the next few weeks.


Questions include what snacks they eat, how much exercise they do and how long they spend doing different activities.  The data is used by local government to understand what children’s lives are like and how healthy they are.

The diaries and the survey itself remain confidential and personal information will not be discussed in school if children don’t want to.

Please support your child to complete the diary as accurately as possible and return the completed survey by Monday 04 July.

This week, we have two homeworks:

I can show what I know about the EU referendum.

Children are going to be learning about the EU and different points of view regarding the upcoming referendum. In preparation for an in-class debate, children are asked to show what they already know in a creative way.

I can use line graphs.

Worksheets have been given for children to do at home – they must plot a line graph and answer question about it.
