 Homework 

Year 5 Homework Expectations 

1   Maths

Booklets of homework will be coming home from Mrs Dunne and should be returned to school as required.

Times Tables - regular and on-going.

The children need to know their tables quickly and mixed up.  Regular practice is essential.  We use TTRockstars as an online resource for practice.

 

2    Literacy

Accelerated Reader – personal reading – 20 minutes per day. 

The Accelerated Reader programme was introduced in school at the end of last year. The programme recommends that children read for twenty minutes every day. The children should record their independent reading in their Reading Record Books, which will be monitored by class teachers. As part of this programme, the children can also be read to by a parent or family member. This too can be recorded in Reading Record Books if you wish. Children should ensure that their reading books are in school EVERY DAY as they will be needed in class.

Spelling Lists for Years 3,4,5 and 6 – regular and on-going. 

The children’s Reading Record Books contain lists of 200 frequently misspelled words that the children have to learn specifically. These lists can be ticked off at home as a record of progress made.  Additionally, Mrs Jose will set personalised lists of words for the children to learn.  She will be assessing progress regularly.

We will be using Spelling Shed as an online resource for practice.

 

3    Science

Mrs Hammond will set science tasks as needed to follow up and extend work done in class.
