Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.
  • In order to prepare pupils for high school, our older pupils will continue to to have homework set for Maths and Grammar from the CPG skills workbooks.

 

You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and Maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.

 

This weeks Home learning pages:

 

English - p72 - 73 - Hyphenating Prefixes

Maths - p54, 55, 56 & 57 - 2D and 3D Shapes

Creative Home Learning

 

We will not have any Creative Home Learning projects over Spring 2 and Summer 1.

 

This will be in order to provide students with additional time to prepare and revise for the SATS. We would expect children to use this time to read, practice arithmetic practice papers (attached below at the bottom of the notice board) and address any of the gaps from their previous Maths assessments.

Reading

We encourage the children to read at least 5 times a week, recording each time in their reading records/planners. They should be signed by an adult at least once a week please and will also be signed by class teachers. Children must bring them in daily. The diary and organisation of this resource will prepare the child for further independence. 

 

Please encourage them to select age appropriate books both fiction and non-fiction. Newspapers, magazines and pamphlets are also great materials to read. 

Year 6 recommended reading list

The English team in school have worked hard to identify 40 appropriately challenging books for the children in Year 6. The recommended reading lists contain 40 age-appropriate books for children in Year 6 which will capture the children's imagination. The lists contain colour-bands and a description of the books so that the children are able to 'cherry-pick' their favourites according to their book-band level and their personal interests.

While it is not compulsory for the children to read these books, it is highly recommended as it will deepen your child's inference, retrieval and vocabulary skills while also strengthening their love for reading. 

At the end of each half-term, teachers will award bronze, silver and gold certificates in reward assembly to pupils who have read a set number of books from their year group list AND completed a short reading response activity in their reading records (where possible)

Ideas for these short reading responses might be any one of the following; 

- Describing settings and characters from the story

- Identifying possible alternative endings

- Predicting what might be in a sequel (the next book if the story was carried on)

- Summarising the story in 6 bullet points 

- Writing a book review

If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Times Tables Rockstars!

Times Tables Rockstars is a online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.

What is it?

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of  times tables practice. This programme has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 7 years in over 4500 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.

How does it work?

Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.

Is this instead of the times table challenge completed in class?

No, this is to supplement the times tables challenge, giving children a fun way to practise and challenge themselves.

Where does this fit with National Curriculum expectations?

From June 2020, all pupils at the end of year 4 in England will take an online multiplication tables check .The national curriculum specifies that pupils at this stage should be able to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12x12.

The check aims to support pupils to master multiplication skills, which are essential for future success in mathematics. It will help to identify pupils who have not yet mastered this mathematical concept, so additional support can be provided.

How do I log in?

Log in here: https://ttrockstars.com/login, use your child'd details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.
