Year 6 Homework

Year 6 you are given homework to support your learning in school. Try to get into good homework habits, be organised and it will help you when you start high school.



You have been given a book to keep your homework in. Always glue the homework into the book after it has been marked and returned to you.

Please try your best on your homework tasks and always complete it neatly.



The quantity of homework in Upper Key Stage Two builds on what has been set in Lower Key Stage

Two and begins to prepare the children for their transition to high school.

Homework focus

Day set

Day due

In Year 6 sometimes additional revision homework may be set to help children prepare for their Key Stage 2 SATS

Reading: Pupils need regular reading sessions.

Encourage your child to: decode unfamiliar words themselves; use expression and  ask them questions about their reading.

Parents are encouraged to comment in the child’s reading record book, shared by all adults involved. It is also useful to read books to your children - modelling expression and asking questions about the book.

Your child may also be given reading comprehension questions – these are most important and they help them with inference and deduction – an area of reading that a lot of KS2 children can struggle.


Next Day


Maths and English will be alternated every week.

Please practise your multiplication tables, also revise how the facts can support your knowledge of other facts e.g. 30 x 70 and 0.4 x 9 etc.




10-15 current words will be set by your child’s teacher. The spellings will be tested in class on a Friday. At home, you may wish to spend time with your child individually learning and testing the spellings.




Research tasks will be connected to our class vehicle, RE, French , seasonal activities or other areas we are covering in class. Sometimes children may also be encouraged to ask parents questions or discuss issues with parents.

Set on a Wednesday and the return date will always be on the homework sheet.

Century Tech
