Y6 Homework 

Children will continue to be expected to read, learn spellings and practise their fluency in maths. Weekly, they are also given English and Maths homework in the form of CGP work books. These will work on their comprehension, reading and maths problem solving in oder to help them with the transition to secondary school where homework expectations increase significantly.
