Welcome to Year 6!

Year 6 Homework

This term, our D and T project is to make a shelter which is strong enough to support a 2kg weight along with being rain and wind proof. We would like the children to bring materials from home which they will use to make their shelter. We will be making our shelters on Tuesday afternoon.

  3. Summary (summarise the story without giving away the ending)

No spellings this week



The children have a reading record which needs recording in 5 times a week and signed once by a parent/carer. Please try and hear your child read out loud once a week. This will help them with their expression and performance.


The homework diary is an organiser or communication tool for you to contact us about the homework that is set throughout the year. We expect this to be signed once a week as well. This new book will support them with their transition into Year 7. Their spellings should be stuck into this book.

Year 6 suggested reading list.
