This week in science we have been investigating gravity, the force of attraction that exists between any two masses, any two bodies and any two particles. We made gravity models so we could observe the affect of the force! Great scientific work class 12!

    Class 12 Home Learning

    This term we are continuing to use the homework grids.

    Homework has been split into two sections.

    The first section contains activities to be completed each week (reading, spelling and number facts).

    The second section offers a wide range of activities for your child to choose from. Please see the grid below for more information.

    If you need any further information, resources or support with homework, please speak to your class teacher.

    Spellings ~
    Children will be given a new list of spellings in their homework book every Friday, along with some word meanings to find out. Homework books should be returned to school by Thursday, ready for learning to be checked on Friday.

    Children are also expected to read regularly at home. Please continue to support your child's progress in reading by hearing them read as much as possible and asking questions about what they have read. Reading to your child also continues to be important in year 5 as it can play a huge role in developing understanding and building on vocabulary by enabling children to access more sophisticated texts.


    This term in Maths we are focusing on place value and rapid recall of our times tables. We are enjoying playing Times Table Rockstars to help us improve our times tables knowledge and are looking forward to inviting some other classes to participate in battles with us this term!

    'Hit the Button' is another useful online game to help children learn their times tables. Please see the link below.

    You can find extra homework activity ideas in the grid in their homework book.
