In year 6 it is important that the children get into a good routine of completing their homework and bringing it back in so they are used to it by the time they move onto Secondary school.
In our class we use the CGP books and we have bought each child a maths and grammar book for homework to be completed in. We will set a few pages in each book every Monday and it will be due back in on a Monday. The children are responsible for marking their own work as we go through it on a Monday.
If your child is stuck with their homework they can of course discuss it with you and you can provide some help and support or they can come in and speak to either myself or Mrs Adams about it (ideally before the Monday it is due in).
Try this challenge.
Okay - I stumbled across this website and I thought this might be great for some of you as you love challenges and riddles. I tried the Alice in Wonderland one and it was good, I might try another this weekend.
Have a go and see who in your family is the best at answering the riddles.
Mrs Waller, our SENCO, has set up a great page for wellbeing with some great links to sites to help explain this situation to children. If you are interested check out our wellbeing page.
