SAT Revision Homework
Each week Year 6s are expected to complete some reading test practice and maths revision from the SAT revision books they have been given. The reading practice should take approximately 10 minutes, but alongside this they should also be learning spellings and continuing to read for pleasure. We recommend that they spend a couple of sessions on their Maths on different days, spending no more than 30mins at a time. We will review the homework at school. If your child is finding something really difficult, don’t worry about it – just make sure they tell us at school so we can work on helping them with it.
The schedule for work and when to hand it in can be found below
Spellings: These are given out and tested every Thursday, and will be linked to our current teaching. It is expected that children will practise them at home at least three times during the week. The children will have ‘spelling menus’ which detail different ways of practising words. The words are chosen to extend children’s vocabulary as well as spelling ability, so children are also expected to find out what any unfamiliar words mean and ensure they can use them in a sentence.
Reading: Children are expected to read on a daily basis and record this in their home-school diary. We want to foster a love of reading, so this can be books of their choice as well as their school reading book and Bug Club. Kindles, e-books, magazines, comics, recipe books, newspapers and instructions all count. In order to develop vital comprehension skills, children also need to regularly talk about what they are reading with an adult.
