Maths Summer Homework Timetable

Summer Term Extended Homework Project

Year 5 Homework


Reading - We expect the children to read at least three times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes in Year 5.  This should be logged in the reading records that the children should bring between school and home everyday. 


After finishing a book, the children should log onto the Accelerated Reader website to complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text.


Once you have read a book, click on Accelerated Reader – type in the book name (not all books have a quiz) – click on take quiz and work through the questions – you can take a vocabulary test afterwards if it is offered to you.



Spellings - Children will be explicitly taught spelling rules within class. Spelling lists will not be sent home for learning as children will not sit weekly tests however, children are expected to use Spelling Shed weekly to practise their spelling rules and common exception words but the more they practise the better their outcomes will be. They can play any of the games available.


Stage 1 and 2 = year 1 and 2

Stage 3 and 4 = year 3 and 4

Stage 5 and 6 = year 5 and 6

Maths homework 

Maths homework will be set every Tuesday and will alternate between Times tables rockstars and Doodle Maths. 


Times Tables Rockstars 

Children are expected to complete the challenges that have been set fortnightly and are encouraged to continue to use this programme to practise their timetables on a daily basis. 



When homework is set on TTRS, sections will be greyed out so they can't access anything other than their homework. A headphone symbol will appear which tells them how many games have been completed out of the amount set.


Doodle Maths

You can also access through the Doodle Maths website.
or computer.


This app is tailored to your child's ability level in Maths.  All children have completed a Doodle Maths baseline assessment in school so that they can work through the questions as often as they like (collecting stars along the way) at their own pace and a suitable level for each individual child. 


This app/website  covers all areas of the Maths curriculum.

Rewards and Recognitions

House tokens will be awarded for all pieces of homework that are completed and headteacher awards will be given to those children who go above expectations.
