Home Learning is given out each Thursday and every child is expected to complete the task and return their book to class on the following Tuesday. 3 Dojo Points (House Points) will be given for returned, completed homework. From time to time, additional homework may be given out and points awarded in due course. Please keep an eye on the Y6 Twitter feed for any additional information relating to Home Learning.
Reading Torches are also available for children to take home and complete. Each completed torch earns 45 Dojo Points! Daily reading is crucial to making progress with reading.
Progress on Spelling Shed and Sumdog will be checked regularly and Dojo Points will also be awarded to those children who are making an effort to practise their spellings and times tables outside of school learning time.

Our whole school topic is 'Roots & Wings'. In Humanities, we are currently exploring the 'Roots of Wales' - the history of our nation.
For your Home Learning, I would like Year 6 to research an event or period in Welsh history which interests them. You will then present this information in a manner of your choosing e.g. PowerPoint, Sway, short film, animation, mood boards/pictures.
I will use the presentations as an oracy assessment, so you must be prepared to present their research and answer questions about your chosen event or historical era. I am not looking for you to read off the screen or cards. You may have short notes (or even better, no notes...because you really know your stuff!) to help them, but to demonstrate a higher level of oracy, pupils should definitely not read from the screen or detailed notes. Pupils should also demonstrate that you have undertaken thorough research of your topic, which will be evident when answering questions.
PowerPoints and Sway presentations should be completed on Hwb.
Presentations will take place in the week before half-term.
If you have any questions, please just ask!
