Start and End of Day Routine

Children need to arrive at school between 08:45am and 08:55am. When they enter the classroom there will be a morning task set for the children. This may be responding to written feedback from the previous Maths or English lesson; finishing off work; completing some arithmetic work; or they will be given time to read to help support them in hitting their reading target. 

Children are also welcome to attend Breakfast Club at 08:30am where toast, crumpets and juice are provided free of charge and is open to all children.

At 2:45, all children finish lessons and are given 15 minutes to independently read. To support our children who need to increase their reading ages, some go to TAs around the school and are heard read 1:1. Some of our children who need additional support in reading are heard read by a buddy reader (another child in Y6). 

At the end of the day, children are to be collected from the Junior School playground at 3:05pm.

Homework Expectations

In Year 6 children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes each day at home. Please can this be recorded in their reading records daily. Please be aware that we do not change books as soon as the children have read them once, as we want the children to re-read books in order to develop their awareness of punctuation and develop their fluency.

Year 6 children will be given a weekly spelling list, every Wednesday, that focuses on the spelling pattern we are learning that week and the statutory words that are to be learned in Years 5 and 6. We will have a spelling test every Monday and record scores to track progress. Please make sure your child is practicing these spelling words each week and spellings are completed ready to be handed in on Mondays.

Weekly homework will be given out as a paper copy every Friday. This will consist of a VGP (Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation) activity and maths work that will help to consolidate understanding of the maths facts for Upper KS2. The Homework will be collected in and marked on a Thursday.

At certain points of the term we will also be setting Time Table Rockstars battles which consolidate the times table knowledge that is so important in Year 6.
