Homework Expectations

The pupils will receive every week:

- A piece of reading homework

- A piece of SPaG homework

- A piece of maths homework

It is vital that the homework is completed on SATS companion, so feedback can be given in class. ALL children have had their logins and a letter home to parents with the details too.

It is also important that you hear your child read on a regular basis, ideally this would be for a  minimum of 10 minutes at least 3 times per week. Please record when you have heard your child read in their reading record book.

SATS revision guides might also be useful to continue to prepare children for SATS and  the transition to Year 7. Many are available in book shops and on Amazon. CGP guides are recommended.
