Dear Parents and carers,
I am pleased to announce that the first few days back have been excellent. The children have worked really hard and are focused and driven to want to achieve.
I wanted to share with you how homework is going to be set for this year. Firstly, maths homework will be set on mymaths. This will be set following what we have been doing within class for that given week. For example, this Friday it will be place value. Spellings will be set every Friday. The whole terms worth of spellings will be placed below, however, I will also give the children a paper copy. The children will be tested on their spellings every Wednesday. Lastly, reading should be done a minimum of 3 times per week. I have attached a reading list, website and some other useful reading resources below to help with reading at home and to ensure the children are reading books that are both enjoyable and filled with rich language. The homework needs to be completed by Wednesday.
If you have any questions or worries about homework, please contact the office and your messages will be passed on to me and I will be able to respond as quickly as possible.
All the best.
Below is a useful website with some information about the reading skills covered in Year 5, followed by some optional activities you may want to have a go at.
