Homework in Year 6


At Hurst Drive Primary School, we set children homework for the following three reasons:


  • We want to encourage adults in the home to support their child’s learning;


  • We want children to practise basic skills in reading, writing and maths to help improve their achievement in school; and,


  • We want to prepare children for secondary school so that they do not find the transition hard with all the extra homework their teachers will set for them to complete.


Your child will receive weekly homework to support them in developing their English and Maths skills. You can read more about this in our school Homework Leaflet below. Please also note that we have paper copies of this homework leaflet in the School Office.


If you would like to complete additional homework with your child you can find ideas for homework projects linked to your child's learning across the curriculum below too.
