Homework - October Half Term

For their half term homework, Y6 have been given details about a bedtime story competition run by The Book People.  Children need to write a 600-800 word story based on the theme 'imagination'.  Entries must be typed and emailed to Miss Broadbent via the office email  


Entries for this competition are optional, however we still expect children to be reading regularly and filling in their reading records, practicing times tables and spellings.

Homework Guidelines


Homework Tasks: Homework will usually be handed out on a Wednesday and is due back the following Monday.  Homework sheets should be stuck into homework books, apart from spelling and multiplication grids.  Presentation should be neat and writing done in either pencil (for Maths tasks) or blue or black handwriting pen.  Spare homework sheets are kept in the classroom and available to download from the website. It is your responsibility to ensure you have completed all homework tasks and handed them in on time.  



Reading: All children have a reading record and are expected to read every day for approximately 20 minutes.  Reading Records should be filled in to reflect the reading that has been done at home.  Reading Records will be checked on a regular basis.
