Homework is very important in Year 6 as the children prepare for their transition to secondary school as well as getting ready for their SATs. Homework will be given once a week and expected back in the following week. It will be linked to the learning in class and therefore not only encourages independent learning but further embeds their understanding.
Spellings and times tables tests will also be given out weekly.
