Year 6 Homework
We will be setting maths homework each week to be completed. This will either be TTRS or Doodle Maths - please use the timetable to know what the order will be. Children will record their homework in their planner on a Tuesday and this will be checked the following Monday.
We expect the children to read at least three times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes in Year 6. They should record this in their reading journals, noting the book they are reading, the pages they have read and a comment about the book. This could be a summary, prediction or opinion of what they have read.
After finishing a book, the children should log onto the Accelerated Reader website https://global-zone61.renaissance-go.com/welcomeportal?state=CfDJ8MJaIFY-uDtFnXi7BspdA-REs8kGpfwGht-sGlzevLC5a2vdlYcp8lfKG1saDWNTCFDJNq3Hwah_QnipgQVOtfcQ3MyUjNQJnUSUcuyc8kAxHhkbR4lQQ7Siq0Ldtujjayr66sHkVALSHlxwnLWvj8064m1GJhrIWDyQGRb4q_6a8OMw919QMrR3ULm67ZagZEb00SBwcxNT2LSoNnEr8NEto complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text. Class teachers check Accelerate Reader each week for their class.
Once you have read a book, click on Accelerated Reader – type in the book name (not all books have a quiz) – click on take quiz and work through the questions – you can take a vocabulary test afterwards if it is offered to you.
Children will be explicitly taught spelling rules within class. Spelling lists will be sent home for parents' info and if you would like to practise or learn them at home, please do! We will not sit weekly tests however, children are expected to use Spelling Shed weekly to practise their spelling rules and common exception words but the more they practise the better their outcomes will be. They can play any of the games available. https://play.edshed.com/en-gb/login

Stage 3 and 4 = year 3 and 4
Stage 5 and 6 = year 5 and 6
Times Table Rockstars will be set every other Tuesday; children are expected to complete the challenges that have been set. Children are encouraged to continue to use this programme or Doodle Maths to practise their timetables on a daily basis. Links are; https://www.ttrockstars.com/ and https://play.edshed.com/en-gb/login
When homework is set on TTRS, sections will be greyed out so they can't access anything other than their homework. A headphone symbol will appear which tells them how many games have been completed out of the amount set.
Download the free app onto any touchscreen device (iPad, Kindle Fire, Android Tablet etc.) You can also access through the Doodle Maths website.https://students.doodlelearning.com/
-This app is tailored to your child's ability level in Maths. All children have completed a Doodle Maths baseline assessment in school so that they can work through the questions as often as they like (collecting stars along the way) at their own pace and a suitable level for each individual child. This app/website covers all areas of the Maths curriculum.
More information can be found at www.doodlelearning.com
-When homework is set for the children on alternate Tuesdays, it will be displayed as a green circle with the heading; 'Extras.'
Rewards and Recognitions
To encourage children further, house tokens and headteacher awards will be given to those children for who go above expectations.
