We will be researching the life of Charles Darwin this week in preparation for writing a biography.
Year 6 are given weekly homework that is set on a Monday and handed back in for marking on Thursday. This consists of an English activity and a Maths activity. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Wednesday. Children are expected to read every day and make a comment in their reading diary. This should be handed in every day.
How you can help
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
