Y6 Home Learning
Approximate Directed Activity Time - 3 hours
Ideally, every day we would like children to do the following:

Helping your child with home learning - what to do:
Reading (30 mins)
If you do not have a school reading book at home, you can use a book from home or an online book.
Talk to them about what they have read, perhaps ask them questions such as; What does this word mean on this page? Can you think of another word that means the same? Which bit made you feel…….?’How does the character feel on this page - why? Record reading time in their reading diary.
Writing (40 minutes)
There is an English & Maths activity booklet which can be downloaded below. This contains a variety of English activities including comprehension, spelling work and writing prompts. You should aim to complete one activity a day.
If your child would prefer, Pobble 365 www.pobble365.com has daily English activities such as story starters, sick sentences, sentence challenge and question time – feel free to pick a day with a theme that suits your child’s interest.
