How you can help at home / activities you could try together...

English
Reading with your child will help them a lot. They not only need to be able to read their book, but more importantly, they need to be able to answer questions about what they’ve read. Spellings will also be given to the children each week along with their homework. These words are from the Year 5/6 spelling list which they are expected to be able to spell. 

Maths
Testing your child on their times tables will help their mental maths and their pace ready for their SATs paper. The children can practise their times tables by using the PiXL times table app/website which the children have got a login for.

Topic
The children can research their topic more at home, giving them more knowledge for their lessons. They can also practise their internet skills for computing by doing this.


Ensuring your child completes their weekly homework to the best of their ability and the correct challenge level can inform us of any further work we need to do with your child.
