Weekly Homework

To be returned to school on Monday 22nd May 2023



Children are tasked with completing 'Maths Skills Check 8'. During the spring term, the children are expected to complete all of the sections.

Times Table Rockstar

It is important that the children spend time playing on Times Table Rockstar as often as possible. Spending time practising times tables and learning them thoroughly will help the children access maths through Upper Key Stage 2 and beyond.

Spelling Shed

A good standard of spelling is going to be key in Y5 if the children are going to achieve well in writing so the children can be encouraged to play on Spelling Shed.


We ask that children read to a parent at least 5 times a week. If the children manage this, you will receive an additional sticker on your behaviour chart.
Don’t forget to sign and date the reading record book and record the number of pages read.

It is really important that the children are asked a mixture of questions by parents/carers. For now, try to focus on retrieval questions and make sure you practice scanning the text to find the answer.

Homework Club

Throughout the school year, children can attend a 'Homework Club' with Miss Smith at Thursday lunch time.
