Year 5 Homework

Timetable for weekly maths homework

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.  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 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. 

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


Times Tables - Times Table Rockstars will be set every other Tuesday; children are expected to complete the challenges that have been set. Children are encouraged to continue to use this programme or Maths Shed to practise their timetables on a daily basis.  Links are; and



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.


Rewards and Recognitions

To encourage children further, house tokens and headteacher awards will be given to those children who go above expectations.
