Homework Resources



This page is full of useful information and websites that we will be using to set homework this year!


Homework will be set for English and Maths every Friday and your child will also have spellings to learn each week ready for their spelling test, also on a Friday. 


Your child's log in details for all online homework have been stuck in the back of their Reading Logs. 


Below, there are also some useful websites to support  Year 5 & Year 6 children with their homework and what we are learning in school. 


BBC Bitesize

Your child should have brought home a reading book and a yellow reading record which you have hopefully seen! The reading log contains useful comprehension questions to ask your child when reading with them/once they have read independently. It also contains a useful guide to reading. 


We want the Year 6 children to enjoy reading a variety of texts (fiction, non-fiction, newspaper and magazines), therefore if your child has a book or magazine at home that they would like to read, please encourage them to include this in their Reading Log. We expect the children to read at least 3 times a week, but the more reading the better! 


We will be using a stamp in their reading records to indicate that we have recorded their reading as we are continuing with the reading awards.


Bronze: 50 reads
