Year 6 Homework


Each week children in Year 6 are expected to:

  • Read 5 times and record in homework diary
  • Practise their weekly spellings ready for a test each Friday
  • Complete a piece of Maths homework
  • Complete a piece of English homework


Homework is set on a Monday and is due in on a Friday. Each child has a Homework, Spelling and Reading Diary to record their homework and reading in.



Maths homework is set by the child’s Maths teacher and will usually be based on something they are learning in class. It may also be based on a skill that the teacher has noticed that the class need extra practise with. Maths homework should be completed in the children’s yellow Maths Homework book. Children should also practise their times tables, including using TTRS.



It is expected that each child reads at least 5 times each week. Reading records will be checked on a Wednesday morning in school. Teachers will keep a record of who is reading regularly at home. Children can read any book, comic, newspaper etc that they wish. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult.


English and spellings:

English homework and spellings will be set by the child’s English teacher. Homework will either focus on reading skills or grammar skills. English homework and spelling practise should be completed in the children’s red English Homework book.


Homework will be marked in class with the children on a Friday so it is important that the children have their homework books in school by then.

In addition, children are also given the opportunity to complete curriculum homework. At the start of each new topic, a list of suggested activities will be given out and can be completed throughout the term. This is optional homework and can be brought in at any time.
