Homework is a very important part of Year 5.


The children are given homework every week on a Friday, which must be completed and returned for the following Thursday. The homework tasks are usually based on learning during the week. Further homework could be given relating to a topic. Furthermore, the children are given a homework book for homework to be completed in.


If a child is unable to complete their homework, a note must be written to the class teacher. If a child is struggling with their homework, we are more than happy to go through the work with them during school time - just provide a note to explain. If no reason is provided and homework is not completed, children will be expected to complete the task during a playtime.


In addition to a weekly homework task, children are given a reading book. We expect Year 5 children to read for at least 10 minutes every night and have their record signed by a parent or guardian. The children can change their reading books once they are finished. We also encourage Year 5 children to read a variety of different texts, whether that be fiction, non-fiction or a comic! We want Year 5 to enjoy reading.


Year 5 are also provided with a weekly spelling list. We encourage children to rehearse these at home during the week for the test on Thursday. The children should come home with their spellings each Thursday. If they don't, please ask them to get another one. Year 5 also get a spelling list to keep in their tray at school for further practice.


As always, if you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with school.
