What You Will Need in Year 5

Reading Books:  Your child will need to bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. You are encouraged to read with your child every day and to sign their reading record.

Homework:  Children are set weekly online maths and English homework. They are also expected to visit the Times Tables Rock Stars website daily in order to practise their times tables. Children arriving in year 5 are expected to know all of their times tables from 2 - 12. It is important that children continue to practise their times tables on a daily basis in order to maintain this knowledge.

Links for online homework:

If you have lost any of your passwords or have difficulty logging on, please speak to the class teacher.

Spellings:  New spellings are given every Monday to take home and practise throughout the week. After they have covered the rules and definitions during lessons, children will then take home their homework books on a Thursday to write well structured sentences which include their new spellings. They must return their completed sentences the following Monday.
