Home Learning

Year 5 are expected to read at home daily, this should be recorded in their reading record book. The more books read the more Accelerated Reader quizzes can be completed at school. Each quiz carries a number of points that increase in value when 60% or more questions are answered correctly. 5 points earn a certificate.

Our basic knowledge will focus on doubling and halving, and our weekly spellings. Maths work is stuck into homework books so that it can be continued at home, or if it is a game we have been playing parents can play the maths game at home as well. Maths homework is set using Freckle online and changes each Friday. Please ask for a new login if it has got lost.

Paper-based homework is given out in the form of spelling every Friday afternoon on a look, cover, say, write sheet for children to learn at home and a comprehension exercise each Monday.
