Other ways to help at home:

Here are a selection of websites which can help you and your children.

Maths Frame

(Some games are subscription only, but there are plenty of free games and activities to help you practise maths skills)

Corbett Maths Primary

This is a great website as it has lots of short videos which explain key maths concepts and have lots of practice questions to try.

Spelling Frame

Again, some subscription access only games, but there are some free games/word lists which allow you to practise your spellings in lots of different ways.

The School Run

This has lots of information for parents which explains useful terminology.


Children should be encourged to have an enjoyment of reading.  They can use their imagination and lose themselves in a book. Therefore, there should be time at home each day for children to be read to and to read independently. They should be encouraged to read a variety of genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry and asked questions about what they are reading. This will develop their predicton, inference, summarising skills as well as improving their knowledge of vocabulary.  Below is a link to a list of recommended books for Year 6.
