Homework in Year 5
Reading takes priority over all homework. We expect the children to read aloud on a daily basis for 10-15 minutes to develop their fluency, speed and give you the opportunity to introduce new vocabulary to your child and check their understanding. We strongly recommend that you read to them as much as possible preferable a book that they would not necessarily choose or be able to read themselves to develop their understanding. Reading to your child has a huge impact on their progress - please see links below for recommendations.
Maths and English tasks are set every Friday and are linked to our learning that week. The tasks need to be handed in on the following Thursday.
Spellings are set on a Monday and tested on a Friday. The children will have a spelling focus every week and they will practise in school every day. Please support the children at home by checking their word lists and testing them on the focus area for that week. We also use spelling shed to reinforce the particular rule.
