Homework

Year 6 Homework  - 14/09/17

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

As part of our topic work we have begun reading The Hobbit. For homework this week I would like you to think about our first impressions of Bilbo Baggins. Have a go at answering the questions included and sketching a picture of the Hobbit hole using extracts from the text to support your thoughts.

Spellings/ English

Our focus for the next two weeks is words including silent letters. Within this pack are some sets of words to practise. For the less confident, try and learn as many of Set A as you can. For those more confident – have a go at Set B. Next week we will have a quiz and see how many we can remember.

For English I would like you to write me 5 COMPLEX sentences (i.e. sentences with commas and a subordinate clause) including a selection of silent letter words.

e.g. The gnarled gnome bashed his thumb, which didn’t stop throbbing until Wednesday!

Maths

This week in maths we have been looking at place value, rounding and sequences. Included in your homework are a range of challenges and questions linked to this. Have a go at some which help to reinforce our learning.

Reading

This half term I want you to fully immerse yourself in good books! When reading with parents etc. try to discuss the characters in the story, their feelings, actions and emotions. Look at new language and discuss the meaning. Below are the objectives that we are focussing on at present.
