HOMEWORK IN YEAR 5
Homework is set weekly in year 5 on Fridays and due back by the following Wednesday. If your child, for any reason, has found it difficult to complete homework, they are welcome to attend Homework Club on Thursday lunchtimes.
The children are set three activities on Mathletics to complete each week, revising the week's learning. Paper homework is also available for those children who may not be able to access Mathletics at home.
In addition they are usually set a spelling activity in their homework books. These are designed to revise spellings taught in class or lay groundwork for spellings to be taught the following week. Children are usually asked to investigate a spelling rule, or collect words with a particular spelling pattern. Normally they are also asked to put some of these words into sentences to show their meanings.
Occasionally we ask children to learn the spellings of five words for a test.
