Each week, children will be expected to complete a variety of homework tasks to support their in class learning. Tasks include:

Spelling - Activities are set on Spelling Shed each Friday, which correspond to our learning in class.

Maths - Arithmetic test and activities to complete with a family member.

Homework will be given out on Fridays and we expect it to be returned on or before Wednesday of the following week. 

Children will also be expected to read each week and return their book bag on their designated day, signed by an adult. All books books read (chapters in longer texts) will count towards the reading challenge.

If you have any problems accessing the maths homework online or your child finds any of the homework tasks too tricky, please come and speak to a member of the Year 5 team.
