Year 6 Homework Arrangements 2020

Homework is set on a Friday for the following Thursday. I have provided you with a homework book, but this is for you to keep at home. Pictures of any homework you complete that is not part of an online tool should be posted on our home learning SeeSaw account (see log in details). Please do not bring your homework book back into school. It is purely for you to use at home.

Please ensure you complete your homework each week and on time as it will not only support your learning this year, but it will help prepare you for high school.


Each week you will need to complete the following:


  • Reading – 4 x 30 minutes per week minimum.

You should be taking books back and forth from school for this as there will be time when you can read in class too. This could be a book from home or a book from our school or class library. We will try to visit the school library once every week.


  • Weekly Times Tables Practice – 3 times per week

This term we will be testing multiplications and related division facts in class each week. You should be practising your time tables at home during the week. Work on the ones you are less confident with but don’t forget to keep the ones you do know fresh too.  Times Table Rock Stars is a great tool for this and you each have a log in for it. If you prefer to practise in another way, feel free to do that but remember that you will be quizzed in class.


  • Weekly SeeSaw Task

I will set a weekly SeeSaw task for you to complete. The focus of this will vary from week to week and will be related to our class maths, English or topic work (see topic web). It may be computer based or you may need to use your homework book, take a picture and send it in. The details will be provided with each activity, just like when you were completing your home learning during lockdown.


  • Weekly Spelling
  • Spelling will be set weekly via Spelling Shed (see login details). A full list for the year is also available on the year 6 web page. Spellings will be tested in class every Friday.


Other homework that will be set from time to time:

  • – see log in details.

Later in the year, I will start setting occasional spelling, punctuation and grammar activities through This will be linked to aspects of SPAG we have covered and will help to prepare you for the SATs later in the year.


  • LBQ – (log in details provided through SeeSaw when we do it)

I may use LBQ for revision of things we’ve covered in class. This is trickier to do because it will usually have an expiry on the same day it is set. When I set this I will give you as much notice as possible so that you are able to complete it.


Let me know if you have any problems!
