Homework

Year 6 Homework - 25/01/18

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 continue your learning from last week about Anne Frank, pick an activity to have a go at either the comprehension exercise or the ‘Secret Annex’ drawing task.

Spelling and Grammar

Along with the weekly spelling lists, this week I have included some sentence work based around ‘modal verbs’. Remember these are a type of auxiliary verb used to show a measure of possibility. Have a go at the level of challenge which suits you best.

Maths

This week we have begun to look at algebra – the use of pictures and letters to represent numbers within an equation. Included is a set of algebra questions. Have a go at as many as you can in 40 minutes!

Also, if time permits, you might like to log into our new online times tables resource Times Tables Rockstars (www.ttrockstars.com) Keep up the practise – it is clearly having a really positive effect on your maths skills!


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
