Homework Expectations – Year 6 Homework will be set every Wednesday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece of written work or a worksheet and a set of spellings to learn.

 Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. Updates on what we have been doing can be found on the 6 page of the English Martyrs Website:  Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling. 

 House points will be awarded for good work each week.
