 Homework 

Each term, the children will be given a new ‘Independent Homework Grid’. In Year 6, there will be set ‘hand in’ days at the bottom which is the minimum requirement. Each task should be taken from a different row and column. The amount of time a child chooses to spend on a project is up to them. Please focus on the presentation!

After completing times tables and arithmetic on a Friday, children should choose an area that they would like to practice at home to help them improve their score each week. 

Homework Hand-in Dates: 
  • First task to be handed in on 23rd January;
  • Second task to be handed in on 13th February; (this homework can either be handed in on Friday 10th February, or Tuesday 21st February)
  • Third task to be handed in on 6th March;
  • Last task to be handed in on 27th March
