Year 5

Homework is sent out every Friday.

Homework alternates between maths and grammar work in preparation for SATs next year.

Your child has a green homework book to complete this in and once completed it should be handed into school by the following Friday ready to go through as a class.

If your child is missing their homework sheet please ask them to request a new one from either Mrs Brindley or Miss Woodhill.


Times tables- every child has a times table book to use. Within this there are bronze, silver and gold stages for each of the times tables which they need to progress through successfully to move onto the next one. Once they have completed all the stages to the highest level they will progress onto other vital mathematical concepts.

The following website has lots of fun games for your child to use in order to help them remember their times tables which they all have a log on for.


Reading- children are expected to read at least 3 times a week outside of school. This could be their school reading book or anything else they enjoy reading such as newspapers, magazines and comics. Children/parents are to record this information in the reading section of their communication book. 3 pieces of reading evidence equals dojos for your child!

Your child will read in school but this will often take the form of free reading time and our class text (a new one each half term such as Journey to the River Sea or Shackleton's Journey).


Spellings can be found in the front of your child's homework book. Every week they highlight ten of the Common Exception Words which they are expected to know by the end of year six. We then test them every Friday on those ten spellings.

See strategies below to help your child learn and remember their spellings:
