Welcome to the year 6 homework page. Please visit this page regularly if you are in year 6 to see what tasks Mr Frelich has set for you. If you have any problems, please contact school via stalbans@sap.dsat.education

 

Each of you was sent with a pack of 3 x 10 minute tests. The great thing about these tests is they have the answers on the back so you can mark your work as soon as you have done them. I am not going to include these as part of the daily tasks. I would like these to be used as ‘optional extras’ should you want to do more learning if you have finished the daily tasks. Please only do 1 optional extra test per day. 

Our current class book is the Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Please don’t let the children watch the films (yet) as I’d like them to learn about the story as we go.

You can download the pdf version of the book here The Hobbit byJ RR Tolkien EBOOK
