Year 6 Homework


Children will be set homework in both paper and electronic form. 


Children will receive a Maths and English activity to complete as homework each week.


Electronic homework will be set on Century Tech, Times Table Rock Stars and/or Purple Mash.  Please check these regularly to ensure that your child is completing activities to a good standard. 


Daily reading of 20-30 minutes is part of homework.  This reading is in addition to reading completed in class.  It can be their reading book set by the school, reading for pleasure book or research books linked to our topics. 


Children will also be set spellings each week which are to be practised as part of their weekly homework. The spellings will be matched to our RWI spelling work in class, with a spelling pattern to learn in Week A and words from the Y5/6 National Curriculum list set in Week B (the children may refer to these as orange words).  


Year 6 are given homework to support learning in school. Good homework habits and being organised now will help you when you start high school.



You have been given a book to keep and practise your spellings in- always glue the spellings into the book. The homework tasks will usually be given in the children's folders. Please try your best on your homework tasks and always complete it neatly. The packs given will be due in at the end of every month- please just work through them as best you can, then hand your folder in once completed. All folders will need to be handed in at the end of every month, regardless whether all packs have been completed.



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.

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.

Century Tech English nuggets are also set for completion by the class teacher

One task (Grammar/Punctuation/Comprehension sheet) will be sent every week to be shared with parent. This may be split into two smaller tasks.
