From 29th June until the end of term, work will be uploaded on weekly basis for children to complete as part of their home learning.
It is essential that children complete the work set for each day in both the Maths and English books provided. The work set will cover many aspects of the Year 6 Curriculum to ensure the children are well equipped for Highschool.
Each week, English and Maths work will be uploaded for the week, along with a Science lesson. Weekly Spellings and Vocabulary lists will also be uploaded for you to practice and test at home.
Sheets do not need to be printed and stuck in, however questions can be neatly written out inside the books, along with the date and LO for each day.
The children have also been given past SATS papers as extra work to work through in their own time as revision.
