Please see below for details of how homework expectations have changed at Sherdley this year :

Homework Expectation at Sherdley

Years 5 & 6

We expect ALL pupils to :

  • Spend time reading at home and record this in your Reading Journal – this could be a Book Band reading book from school or something else that you like to read (a library book, a novel from a series you like, a magazine or comic on sports or gaming or ANYTHING else!)


  • Spend time learning your Multiplication Tables you will be tested on these in school and will be expected to know the division facts associated with the times tables too. These will help you in all of your maths activities and especially in reaching Greater Depth understanding at Year 6.



  • Spend time practising your spellings – when you are given a spelling list in school it is important that you look at it, write the words out, say the letter names, use rainbow writing or any other strategies you have learned to make sure the spelling is accurate. If you need extra paper to practise at home please ASK YOUR TEACHER – we have lots of books that you could use at home. Spellings matter for your Year 6 End of Year tests – both for the spelling test and also for the writing element – you cannot achieve the expected standard for Year 6 if your spelling is inaccurate!



Year 5 and 6 pupils have access to an online programme called ‘Boot Camp’ – this provides refresher activities and practise tasks for all of the main areas of learning – SpaG, Maths, Spelling etc.

The school login is : sherdley1234 and the password is : sherdley.

We have a license to enable all pupils to access the site in school and at home.


Additional Practise tasks

Class teachers may give out additional tasks to some or all pupils throughout the year. These will be based on class assessments linked to achieving the End of Year Expectations – some pupils may need a little extra practise of a strategy or concept. It is an expectation that these are completed and returned to school.
