Mathletics and Reading Eggs
Children's weekly homework will be set every Wednesday on the Reading Eggs and Mathletics online platforms (see links below). This will consist of a maths assignment, a reading comprehension task and a spelling task. All children will be expected to complete these tasks by the following Wednesday. If there is a problem with either the platform or the completion of work, please talk to us and we will do our best to overcome any issues.
Within these platforms, there is much more to access and play than just the homework assignments, so please feel free to explore all that they have to offer.
Spelling Practise, Home Reading and Multiplication Tables
In addition to Mathletics and Reading Eggs, our children will be given weekly spellings each Monday. Please rehearse these at home, ready for Friday's spelling check. We learn the spelling patterns contained in these spellings each day in class also, in order that our we have a comprehensive understanding of increasingly challenging rules and conventions.
Home reading is also something which we would expect children to carry out regulalry, though this can be any text that they choose- novels, webpages, graphic novels, recipes, newspapers, research, magazines, etc. Please remember to record this in children's reading records.
Multiplication tables of vital importance in Year 6, especially as children are working with increasingly more complex concepts (algebra, multiplying fractions, statistical analysis, etc.) A quick recall of all tables is required by all children.
