Welcome to Year 5
On this page you'll find information about home learning tasks, previous events and upcoming activities your child will be taking part in. At the bottom, you'll find useful links we think may be of interest to you.
Year 5 Home Learning
Learning Log (Starting after October half term)
Learning Log tasks will appear on the Year 5 Class Page on a Monday and then come home stuck into your Learning Log on a Wednesday as they always have. This home learning will need to be handed in on the following Monday as usual. Be creative and have fun!
It is really important that you read a range of texts (from novels to newspaper reports). You do not have to read to an adult but it is great if an adult can ask you questions about what you have read. We expect you to read a minimum of five times a week and record this in your home/school communication books. These will be looked at on a Monday (5K) and a Tuesday (5C).
This term your Maths home learning will come home on a Wednesday and be due in on the following Monday to your class teacher. Each week, along with your Maths home learning, you will get some times table work that you need to complete. It is really important that you develop instant recall of times tables up to 12 x 12 so please be practicing!
Spellings (starting w/c 2nd October)
Our spelling procedure has changed this year! This term a spelling rule and words including this rule will come home on a Wednesday (following a spelling lesson based on the rule) and words will be tested on the following Monday. There is a spelling information meeting at 2:30 and 6:00 on Thursday 28th September which will outline the new procedure and give you more information. We recommend that you practise your spellings for 5 minutes or so each day rather than a longer period all at once.
