Class 12 Home Learning
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 and complete.
If you need any further information, resources or support with homework, please speak to your class teacher.
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.
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.
We enjoy 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!
