Homework is an important and necessary feature of Year 6. It is not only a useful exercise in independence but also prepares the children for secondary school and reinforces work taking place in the classroom. This applies whatever the ability of the child. Homework will be set on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. Generally it will include a piece of grammar, maths, spellings and times tables and occasionally a piece of writing. We also want you to encourage your child to read a wide range of texts on a regular basis. The children will need to write book reviews and participate in Book Battles on some of the texts they read.
Each week the children will be given a spelling test related to a spelling pattern taught that week. Every half term the children will be tested on the year 5/6 words.
It is very important that children have their PE kits in school EVERY DAY. PE sessions are dependent on the weather and we want to go outside as often as we can. Please ensure that children have suitable kit for indoor (Lindfield logo PE top or white t-shirt and green shorts, white socks and trainers) and outdoor sessions (as indoor plus tracksuit bottoms and a warm jumper).
In preparation for secondary school, children are encouraged to be responsible for their own equipment.
