    Class 12 Home Learning

    Homework Grids

    Every week, we will be uploading a home learning grid which will include a variety of topic related activities for you to choose from for that week.

    We would love to see the work you have been doing at home! You can send photos, powerpoints etc.to our class email address.

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

    Spellings
    You can continue to practise your spellings on the Spelling Ski game on Learning Beck. Additionally, the Year 5/6 spelling list is also available on this page for you to practise these words.

    Reading
    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!
