RE: Homework expectations for Year 5 pupils

Every week pupils will be given spellings, times tables, maths and literacy homework. If pupils are seen to not have put any effort in to their homework or they fail to hand this in they will be given a penalty point and if this continues; parents will be notified.

Spellings – a list will be given to them on Monday and they will be tested on Friday. They will have the opportunity to practise these in school. However, they are also expected to spend time learning and practising these at home.

Times tables – children will be told which times tables they need to practise and they will be expected to learn the inverse division facts for these too. For example, pupils are told to learn their 4x tables. They need to know that    6 x 4 = 24   AND so   24 ÷  4  = 6

They will be given this homework on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday.

Maths-Homework will be given on a Thursday and this must be handed in the following Tuesday.

Literacy-Homework will be given out on a Thursday and collected in the following Tuesday.

May we also take this opportunity to remind parents that pupils are expected to be reading at home to an adult. Pupils are rewarded with a sticker each time they read to an adult and they may obtain certificates and prizes for doing so.  It is proven that reading a variety of texts and reading regularly improves the literacy skills of a pupil.


Many Thanks for your continued support

We have had a fantastic half term so far!


 We supported our year 6 and 2 friends during the SATs and we had some exciting maths lessons out of class. As a class we wish all the year 6 and year 2 children well when the results come out.


Also, as a class, we have been a part of the Lively Lives competition. We learnt about how we can stay healthy and ways to try and make other people make those right choices. Each child created a poster and was sent off last Thursday (fingers crossed we win).


There has now been a slight change with homework, homework will now be given out on Friday and returned on the following Friday. This allows the children time to try and work out the answers for themselves, as well as asking for help at home or at school if needed.
