Parents/Carer of children in Year 6

Y6 Homework Arrangements


We believe that homework helps to reinforce the children’s understanding, knowledge and skills and to strengthen independent learning.

The continuation of the Homework Diaries enables us to:

  • provide another channel of communication with the class teacher

  • give parents a clearer idea of homework tasks and completion/return dates

  • help your child to take greater responsibility for his/her learning and progress


    Homework Diary Arrangements


  • The homework diary must be brought to school each day

  • Every day please take time to check to see what tasks have been assigned

  • Please sign in the space provided for parents

    1. to acknowledge that you know what your child needs to do

    2. to confirm that the tasks have been completed.

  • Staff will be checking through diaries every Monday to assess whether you have acknowledged the homework that has been assigned and it has been completed.

  • Use the space provided to write a comment about your child’s reading progress.


    The homework tasks are:

  • Reading book/ text work daily
  • Maths mental work e.g. multiplication tables
  • Written maths work
  • Occasional science work
  • Additional work sent home for foundation subjects in the holiday
  • Spelling – children should have access to a dictionary and a thesaurus





  1. a general rule 40 minutes per evening is suggested as appropriate for Year 6 children although this could be spread over the week/weekend.
  • The homework diary, homework books/sheets should be kept safely and if possible carried to and fro in a book bag that may be purchased from the school office.
  • We are sending home another copy of the homework timetable for you to place on the fridge or somewhere convenient for you to keep a check on the homework schedule.


Yours sincerely
