Homework

Reading

We expect you to listen to your child read a minimum of Five times a week but preferably every day. Aim to spend around 10 - 15mins listening to your child read and asking them questions about the text to check their understanding. Were there any words they didn't understand? How do they think the character's were feeling? Why did they act that way? What do they think might happen next?
 

This reading needs to be recorded in your child's reading record book and signed each time. Please mention the pages read and if the book has been completed so that we can keep track of your child's reading. There are prizes that children can earn for reading, such as stationery, books and in-school treats. The more times you read each week, the better the prizes to be won!

Maths

Maths homework is set using Times Tables Rock Stars. Using Garage Mode, this automatically chooses the times tables that are best suited to your child’s abilities. There are many other game modes to choose from. Click here to practice your times tables. Please speak with your child’s class teacher if you have any difficulties.

Aim to play 5 minutes every day.

Spelling

Spellings are now completed using Spelling Shed. Click here to find your child’s spellings. There are new spellings every week linked to the spelling patterns being studied in school. If you have any issues with accessing Spelling Shed, please speak with your child’s class teacher.

Topic

Topic homework will be given out each term and will contain a choice of activities for your child to complete with you. Please choose at least three to complete each term. Topic homework can be brought in at any time throughout the term and will be shared with your child's class. House points will be given out as a reward for effort and quality. More information about this can be found here.

Top Tips for Successful Home Learning

With reading, spelling and times tables, the key is to practice little and often - every day if at all possible, but if not, certainly try on week days. This has far more impact on your child's progress than spending an hour or two once a week.

Find a time which works best for you and your family and try to establish a routine. Some find it best to do homework as soon as they get home, others just before bed or even first thing in the morning.

If you have any concerns, difficulties or questions around homework, please do not hesitate to talk to your child's class teacher.

 

PE

The children will need to come into school wearing their PE kits on a Monday and they should dress appropriately for outdoor weather. On their other PE day, they should come to school in their uniform as normal as they will be doing PE in the hall in bare foot.

 

Library

Year 5 will be going to the library to exchange books on a Thursday.
