Year 5 Homework

Year 5 Homework


Reading - We expect the children to read at least three times a week. They should record this in their school planners. We ask parents to sign this weekly. After finishing a book the children should log onto the Accelerated Reader website (you must use the link on our school website) to complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text. Children should then record their score in their planner. Planners are only checked on Monday by class staff. If reading is not completed / recorded within diaries, children will be given a break time detention on a Tuesday and will read quietly for 10 minutes.


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 frequently to practice their spelling rules and common exception words.


Extended Homework Challenges - Each term, children will be set a number of tasks to complete which link to the terms curriculum. These tasks are set to further enrich the learning of the pupils. Points will be given for each homework task completed and children will be rewarded accordingly based on the amount of points gained over the term. Completed work should be added onto seesaw.


Maths - Times Table Rock Stars / Mathletics will be set on a Tuesday. Children should complete these tasks at home and will gain a point for every session they carry out.
