Hello Year 6!
Here is your homework for this week. Remember, that homework will now be published electronically on this homework page every Friday. Please complete the activities given and self-mark them (or ask a parent to mark them) after you have finished. Answers will be published too to help you with this. Please do not bring any completed homework into school.
You should be reading for at least 20 minutes per day, including weekends. Not only does reading improve concentration, develops imagination and teaches children about the world around them, reading develops children’s vocabulary and language skills. You can read with an adult or alone; however, you should try and spend several sessions per week reading with an adult so that you can discuss themes, responses and vocabulary within a book. Remember to use your Epic log in to read books and comics online or via the app too!
Reading comprehension: read through the text below all about recycling (next week is National Recycling Week!) and answer the questions that follow. Make sure you use the information from the text to answer and try to answer in as much detail as you can. Once you have finished, ask a parent to mark your answers using the answer sheet provided, or self-mark, and discuss any incorrect answers together.
Please spend time over the course of the week on Times Tables Rock Stars to ensure your times tables remain up to scratch. Accurate and efficient time table recall will help you massively in Year 6 with all aspects of maths.
Adding and subtracting integers worksheets: complete the worksheet on adding and subtracting numbers. Self-mark your answers once you have completed and ask a parent to go through any mistakes with you.
Additional Maths Homework
Below are some additional maths homework sheets for you to work through if you would like to extend your learning. These are all things we have looked at in class this week (adding and subtracting) so will be good for you to check your understanding. If you were off school for any illness or quarantine reasons, it might be worth you having a look at these additional sheets to ensure you can complete the maths topics covered in school and to make sure you don’t have gaps in your learning due to missed work.
