In year 5, the homework expectations are as follows:
This will be given out where it is deemed necessary. This could be because your child would benefit from extra practise or to extend and challenge.
For more information on homework, please see the homework policy on the school website.
Spellings will also be sent home weekly (see Yellow Home Spelling Record), and the children will be tested on them the following Friday.
Doodlemaths Your child needs to achieve 30 stars a week over a minimum of 3 separate sessions.
Reading : Please continue to support your child with regular reading sessions. As in previous year groups, your child will be given a weekly reading target that they are expected to meet. Your child needs to read their reading target (a set number of pages set by their teacher) over 4 sessions per week. Please write comments in your child’s blue reading record when you hear them read or discuss the story they are reading.
Multiplication tables: Children will be regularly practising multiplication tables and other mental skills and will be tested weekly. Further practice at home will enable them to answer quickly and accurately. Please help your child to develop confidence in these.
