Year 6 Homework
As we move into the second half of Year 6, the homework that the children will bring home will be slightly different. This is to allow the children to practise the skills that they have learned so far, as well as giving them to opportunity to start some revision for their SATs.
Please support your child with their homework and encourage them to make sure that it is handed in on time. Not only will this support their learning, but it will also help them to prepare for homework that they will receive at Secondary School.
Homework will be sent home as follows:

Our Iceberg Investigation
Our iceberg investigation proved that 90% of icebergs are underwater. We had lots of theories about what might happen including:
* The water level will increase as the iceberg melts.
* The water level will stay the same as the iceberg melts.
* Salt in the water, (like the sea,) will make the iceberg melt more quickly.
* The iceberg will move as it melts.
* Our iceberg will melt more slowly if it is outside. (It was very cold!)
Which do you think are correct? Why?
