All homework is paper-less at Halton but children have been given green A4 homework books to write in to keep at home.
Homework will be uploaded onto Seesaw on a Wednesday. Children have a full week including a weekend to complete tasks. Homework should be completed and uploaded into pupils' Seesaw journals by Tuesday.
As all families have different weekly schedules and different opinions about homework, a choice of three tasks is given, only one of which is compulsory as set out in our home school agreement.
MUST: All children are required to read daily at home and have their home school diary signed by an adult. Children are also required to practise their times tables to 12 x 12 if they are not regularly scoring 100 in the weekly test on Friday. Children should be encouraged to practise their times tables on Timestables Rockstars or Hit the Button. See below for links.
SHOULD: Most children are expected complete this task which will be based on one of the following aspects:
- learning spellings based on that week’s pattern and the Year 5/6 list of key spellings.
- Maths tasks based on that week’s learning.
- A reading comprehension task or a writing task
COULD: This is an additonal task that children who require challenge (or who are preparing for the rigours of secondary school homework!) might like to do. It is likely to be a more open-ended or creative task based on the term's science or topic theme.
Wednesday is PE day for Year 6. Don't forget to come into school already dressed in your School PE Kit and school jumper. You will remain in your kit all day and will not need a change of clothes.
During the colder months a tracksuit is permitted on PE day. In line with our uniform policy, this needs to be plain and navy blue. Please do not come into school wearing football kits or jumpers with large logos on the front.
