Spellings are tested and given out each Friday. These are the spellings which can be found in pupils' home school diaries and on the class page. Pupils will be given a list of words (which all have a similar spelling pattern or rule) each Friday which they will stick in their diaries.


Homework across school this year is heavily focused on three vital areas: reading, spelling and times table knowledge. We have purchased a reading 'SATs buster' book, which is compiled of ten-minute tests, for all Y6 pupils due to the positive feedback from pupils and parents over the past two years. Tests within the book will be set on specific weeks and a reminder of the homework can be found at the bottom of the class page. As the pupils are aware, we expect all Y6 children to be reading for pleasure on a daily basis. We advise that this is a mix of reading to an adult, to another family member or to themselves. Mrs Dawes checks planners every Friday to see who has managed to get their 7 reads recorded in their home school diary. The pupils who achieve this will be awarded 7 points on Class Dojo for that week.
