Weekly homework

Homework - 17/05/24 


Ready for Monday, please bring in the draft of the story you have chosen as one of your moderation pieces.

Use the links below or search for your video title.

Summer Term homework - lead up to SATs

Please use the tabs below to select the homework you think suits you best each week. There is no formal requirement for the amount that you do - though I'd suggest you choose 1 thing from each section. I have added enough so that you can do up to 2 challenges per week e.g. 2 maths, 2 grammar and 2 reading. But you might do 1 of each or double up on just the subject you know you need to work on. 

You are getting really good at personalising your learning so that you are revising the bits that you need.

We are all so proud of you.


Miss Wood

Previous homeworks...

Easter holiday homework:


1) Read every day

2) Write the draft of your dialogue story that we have planned this week. Remember lots of it must be spoken but that you must also advance the action. 

3) Maths revision - complete 5 of the tasks

4) Reading revision - complete 5 of the tasks

5) Grammar revision - complete 5 of the tasks.

6) Take a look at the Y3/4 and Y5/6 spelling lists - put 2 words each day into a sentence (written or verbally) - make sure you learn the correct spelling. 

Please note: 

I want you to have a wonderful holiday. Remember what we have talked about in class:

Reading and spelling homework is for Monday-Friday excluding bank holidays.

Be creative with the 5 pieces for each subject - they should take about 10 minutes per task.

  • If it's a reasoning paper this might mean it counts as 2 sessions. 
  • An Easter recipe can count as maths - you're weighing measuring, doing ratio
  • Reading signs at a historical place/ an Easter hunt instructions is READING
  • Times tables/ spelling in the car on the way to a day trip can count as a homework.

Half term homework

Homework for the October half term:

Please have a great week but here are some ideas of things your children can be doing to keep up the learning practise...


  • If your child needs to brush up on times tables, please encourage this.
  • Maths Flex
  • Children are all learning a poem by heart (they know which one and have written in their diaries) it would be great if they could practise this.

Charge of the Light Brigade

Evacuee - Edith Pickthall

An Irishman Foresees his Death

I saw an Old General at Bay

War rhymes - 

Dulce et Decorum Est

(Children's war rhyme) Underneath the churchyard, six feet deep, There lies Hitler fast asleep, All the mice come and tickle his feet, 'Neath the churchyard, six feet deep.

Who's that knocking at the window? Who's that knocking at the door? If it's Hitler, let him in And we'll sit him on a pin, And we won't see old Hitler anymore.

Due 25th October

This week your child will bring home their first Y6 Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation paper and Maths arithmetic paper. Please help them to work through any questions they answered incorrectly - there is no set limit on how many as some questions may require research time, while others will be easily fixed mistakes due to children seeing the question style for the first time. I have attached the mark scheme so that adults helping the children know the answers! As the children correct, please encourage them to explain why their answer was not the correct one as this is the way they will learn best. 

Go to

Username is 1st 4 letter of first name then 1st 4 letters of last name e.g. Sarah Bates would be sarabate

Class 6 homework expectations:

1)  Try your best

2) Complete your Reading, English and Maths homework each week (unless you are ill)

3) do extra practise if you need to (e.g. times tables) or would like to. You can use MathsFlex, Youtube videos or SATs guides for this.

4) If you need help, ask before it is too late.


Homework is due in on Wednesdays. If your homework is not in school by Friday, you may be asked to complete it at school.


There is no need to worry. All we ask is for you to try your best. 



































This week, your child will be practising and performing a WW1 or WW2 poetry composition by heart. The poem can be one they have practised for homework, in school or something they write themselves.

They will then need to record this and upload it to Dojo. 

If you have technical trouble, just write a note in your child's diary letting me know they have performed it to you.
