smiley    Homework  in Purple Class usually follows this pattern.

smiley    English is set on a Monday and marked in class the following Monday. This is usually a reading comprehension and their individual key word spellings.


smiley    Maths is set on a Thursday and marked in class the following Thursday. This is usually a page of mental maths and some arithmetic practice.  There will also be a mental maths test on a Thursday.


smiley   There is a weekly spelling test from the spelling lists below every Friday. A few words from previous weeks will also be tested to help children retain previously learnt spellings.


smiley It is also expected that children will read most nights for about 20 minutes.


smiley   It is expected that children will have a quick recall of all tables facts by year 6 as without this they will find a lot of maths difficult this year.   

smiley It is important that  children who don't know or have a slow recall of tables practise these each day for about  5 minutes- Hit the button is a good app or website for this.


100 books to read by the end of year 6
