This week's homework...



My Maths homework - recapping decimal place value.


English homework:

Next week we will be writing newspaper reports - take the Newspaper Checklist and see if you can find all the features in a newspaper article.


You can choose your own newspaper/magazine article or use one of the newspaper reports attched below.

Have fun and have a great weekend!

Previous homeworks...



Spellings: Friday's test will be on the silent letter 't' words - you'll repeat these next week too to ensure they are embedded.


Maths homework - MyMaths


English homework - please complete the activity on identifying active and passive form. You don't need to bring a copy into school - just have a go. We will go through the answers in school so that we can check you understand because this is a tricky concept. 



Continue learning the silent b spellings ready for Friday's test. Next week your spellings will be silent letter t.


Maths homework: My maths - multiplying and dividing fractions recap.


English homework: start to learn the song below for our class assembly. You might...

  • practise by listening and singing.
  • learn how to pronounce all the words
  • learn the defitions of the words using a dictionary
  • handwrite the lyrics to help you remember. 

The choice is yours - as long as you have the lyrics mostly learned by next week. 



Class 6, can I say thank you to those who emailed fabulous homework this week. 

I am also very proud of how you conducted yourselves at the cenotaph today. 

This week... 

Remember to continue practising your spellings ready for Friday. Silent letter 'b'.


Maths: Your MyMaths homework is BIDMAS - remember to calculate in the correct order!

English: Your activity is photographed below. Have fun!


This week's homework has a firework theme. Please do remember to stay safe if you will be watching fireworks and using sparklers at home.


Maths homework: This is not on MyMaths. Instead, you have a Fiery Figures challenge to choose - number 2 is more tricky than number 1.

English homework: Write and decorate your own firework poem - use this as an opportunity to practise your handwriting skills. 


Spellings: spellings will come home on Monday and you will have a week to practise these. The first spelling pattern is 'silent letters'. If you'd like to look ahead, you can find the Y6 spelling log under the spelling tab on your homework page. 



For the next 2 weeks you have a topic homework project.

There will be no English and Maths homework but do keep reading at home and practising your times tables. 

The information for your topic project is attached below:


This week there is no topic homework - you'll be given your next project before half term.

Maths homework - recap of fractions

English homework - practise learning the poem - we will be reciting it next week on Thursday


Maths homework

Your MyMaths task is based on negative numbers. 


Topic and English homework - this task is in your Anderson shelter booklet

Write a conclusion about your work on Anderson shelters.

  • Did you make good choices about materials?
  • Was it a successful construction?
  • Would your shelter have been safe enough to use?

I can't wait to see the shelters you have made next week (Friday 16th).  

** please note, you'll have the poem task again next week and then we will recite them in class the week before half term. I know lots of you have been working hard to practise so keep going. 



This week's topic homework is to complete and test your Anderson Shelter.

Your MyMaths homework is based on place value. You have all been amazing at that this week.

For English, we will be learning some poetry by heart. Practise the poem by Laurence Binyon - the link is below. (You will need to be able to recite this by heart in 2 weeks time to meet the Y6 curriculum objective)


This weeks topic homework is to begin to build your Anderson shelter
