Home Learning

This will be updated regularly with new home learning tasks.

Please note that the statutory keyword spellings are the the same for Year 5 and Year 6. The Year 5 children will be starting on the new keywords this year and then consolidate and secure them in Year 6. 

To further extend the Year 6 children we have added extra spelling words to enhance and enrich their vocabulary when writing. All children must be able to read and define each word as well as spell them correctly, as this is also tested in our weekly spelling test every Tuesday afternoon.  

A new spelling list, alongside a punctuation and grammar task, will go out every Tuesday ready for the test the following week. A Mental Maths test will also be given out on a Thursday which will be in for Monday morning. If your child misplaces their spellings for that week or Maths task, please come and ask your class teachers for another copy or find them on our class page.  

In class, the children will also be taught spelling rules and patterns which will constantly be reinforced in English and Guided Reading sessions. This scheme of work/planning is attached if you would like to look over some of the rules and words at home for further practice.
