Year 5

Weekly Homework

To be returned to school on Monday 13th February 2023


Children are tasked with completing 'Maths Skills Check 13'. 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.

Half-Termly Homework

Over the course of this half-term, we would like you to complete at least one of the following activities linked to your geography unit 'A Local Study.'

  • Create a poster that compares the city of Derby to another city from England or another country
  • Use an OS map to go for a walk and take photos of your journey
  • Create and write a postcard from the viewpoint of someone who has been visiting Spondon, or your local area
  • Design and create a scale model of a local area landmark
  • Design and create a 3D map of part of your local area

All homework tasks will need to be brought into school for the half-termly homework event on Tuesday 14th February 2023. Parents/carers will be invited in to view the homework at the end of the school day.
