Reading at Home

Your child will always have a book from our reading scheme and either a book from the class library or ‘Book Hut’. We expect them to read at home at least three times a week, however aiming for five reads will really help your child to progress. Dojo points are awarded for children who meet these reading targets. A prize draw also takes place each week for the chance to win a reward for effort with home reading.


As well as home reading, your child should already have brought home their times table booklet. We expect them to complete a page each week focusing on a times table of their choice. A homework book has also been sent home with a copy of the Year 5/6 Spelling List inside. We expect your child to be practising these spellings regularly. Once we start our History/ Geography topic, we will provide a list of possible home learning activities.


PE will take place on a Monday and Thursday in Year 6. We expect your child to have their full kit with them on these days, which consists of: black shorts, white or red T-shirt and a pair of pumps.

Water Bottles

We encourage your child to bring their own water bottle into school each day. These can be refilled throughout the day as needed.
