    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.


    The children continue to have access to Timestable Rockstars and it's great to see their enthusiasm for this has carried on into the Spring term. We are aiming for instant recall of all times tables up to 12, as well as knowledge of division facts.

    '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.
