Year 5 Homework

A homework task will be sent home at the start of every half term in Homework Logs.

This is a creative task and each child can choose to complete it to suit their interests.

However your child chooses to do it, be it a 3D model, cookery or creating something on the computer, please take a photo / print a copy of it to share in their Homework Log using a double page spread.

This half term’s focus: Modern Mexico

Here are some amazing examples from our fantastic Homework Galleries…

Reading at Home

Remember to read regularly at home. It’s important your child reads to you but you reading to them can be really beneficial too!

Please record home reading in your child’s reading journal. If they read independently and write this into their own journal, please intital what they have written.

Reading Rocket Race

1. Read FOUR times a week or more at home to earn a sticker on your reward card (this is kept above your peg).

2. You require ten stickers on your card to complete each level:
Bronze – Silver – Gold – Platinum
You will receive a special certificate when you have completed each one!

3. Each week we add your number of home reads onto your running total.
Watch the Reading Rocket Race in your classroom to see who is in the lead to have their name engraved upon our school plaque at the end of the year!

4. Reading in the school holidays counts too, providing it is written in your diary. It also earns you an extra sticker on your chart!

5. If more than one read is recorded on a single date that counts as one read.

For example:
11.9.20 – The Giant Turnip – p1-5
11.9.20 – Cinderella – p15-20
12.9.20 – The Giant Turnip – p6-9
13.9.20 – The Giant Turnip – p10-END
= Three home reads

Good luck and happy reading!


Times Tables 

We will be focusing on the recall of:
x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8, x9, x10, x11 and x12 times tables – with corresponding division facts

Times tables are tested every Thursday. We will keep you updated on what times table your child is working on by sending home a certificate when they complete each level. Please support them to strengthen their recall at home.

Every child has access to Times Tables Rock Stars via their own account. Login details can be found at the back of their Reading Journals. Compete against the clock to answer multiplication and division questions to strengthen accuracy and recall.
