Welcome to year 5
Each week year 5 will be expected to complete the following:
Maths homework is set by the child’s Maths teacher and will usually be based on something they are learning in class. It may also be based on a skill that the teacher has noticed that the class need extra practise with. Maths homework should be completed in the children’s yellow Maths Homework book. Children should also practise their times tables, including using TTRS.
It is expected that each child reads at least 5 times each week and signed by an adult. Reading records will be checked on a Thursday morning in school. Teachers will keep a record of who is reading regularly at home. Children can read any book, comic, newspaper etc that they wish.
Spellings will be set by the child’s English teacher. Homework will focus on a spelling rule, which should be completed in the children’s red English Homework book.
Homework will be marked in class with the children on a Friday so it is important that the children have their homework books in school by then.
Here are some helpful websites to support your learning at home.
