About Year 6
Here are some answers to key questions you may have.
What does home learning look like?
Reading - One of the best things you can do is listen to your child read. Please hear them read a school book, magazine or newspaper at least 5 times a week. Every time they read please record this in their reading diaries.
Please also read with your child as often as you can. This could be before bed or at a quiet time in a comfortable space where your child feels happy. Forming positive reading habits at a young age is one of the best ways to create life-long readers.

Your child will also be given a reading comprehension task, maths work to complete and spellings to learn each week.
Optional MyMaths tasks will be assigned to you children through the year. These support what we are doing in class and they will help your child secure maths knowledge.
