Weekly Homework Tasks
Your child should be reading at home every night, even if only for 10 minutes. Reading is the single, largest indicator of children's progress in the future so it is vital that we encourage and praise children reading at home. Please ensure your child reads for 10 minutes each night after school. If possible, build in a time once or twice a week to read with your child and chat about their book. Pass your child's book back to school as soon as it is finished so we can move them onto another (potentially more challenging) book.
Homework activities will be checked every Friday. Homework should be completed on MyMaths each week and SPAG.com every other week (fortnightly). Children should spend a short amount of each week on TT Rockstars, practising their times tables. At the beginning of the term, each parent was sent a message on Class Dojo with their child's login details for the above websites. If you are unsure of any login details, please use Class Dojo to contact your class teacher. A spelling test will take place every Friday also. A paper copy of the Y5 spellings have been sent home, however, there is another copy of the Year 5 spelling list below... your child will know if they are a group A or a group B speller.
