Homework

Year 6 Homework  - 18/01/18

Homework should take a maximum of ½ hour per night excluding weekends. It is up to you whether you decide to do it all in one go or spread it over the week. Homework is important as it reinforces our class learning and prepares you for Secondary School life. Please try to complete as much as you can!

Topic

To finish our topic, we will be focussing on the Holocaust which ties nicely with our class reader ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’. For homework I would like you to research a young lady named Anne Frank. Create an information page or write a short biography explaining who she was, why she was famous and why her life was so extraordinary.

Spellings

Continuing this half term, we will split into two groups to support the spelling needs in our class. For homework this week, please learn the list of words set for your individual group (both included) ready for a test next week. Also, try to use your words in sentences or a short paragraph to show that you understand the meaning.

I have also included a mini test on formal and informal language. We have worked hard on this this week so have a go and see how you get on. I have included the answers for you to check your scores!

Maths

This week we have continued to construct graphs and interpret statistics. For homework have a go at plotting a line graph and answering some questions on it. Can you write a few different questions based on the information you have plotted?

Reading

This half term I want you to continue to read as much as possible with a focus on inference and deduction. When reading with parents etc. try to ‘read between the lines’, think about reasons behind characters actions and feelings and consider the viewpoint of the author. Look at new language and discuss the meaning. Below are the objectives that we are focussing on at present.

Make inferences about author’s intent, character and plot using evidence from the text

Identify viewpoint in a text

Show awareness of more complex punctuation when reading

Decode increasingly complex new words, reading formation aloud accurately
