This homework will include a piece of either English or Maths and at times, it may also be a topic based project. We ask that you continue to read at home. Reading both aloud to a grown up and silently to yourself are both important skills to continue practising throughout this year.
We will focus on words taken from the Year 6 spelling list which you can find within the ‘Files to download’ section of this webpage. During our English and Grammar sessions in school we will practise these but they will also thread into our learning throughout the week.
