In Year 5, the children will have a range of homework activities over a half term. Homework supports, consolidates and extends the learning that is covered in the classroom whilst encouraging the children to develop the responsibility and confidence needed to learn independently.


Please see spelling, maths facts and topic grids at the bottom of this page. 


We ask for the blue homework books to be brought into school on:

Monday 23rd November and Monday 14th December to be shared and celebrated.


We can't wait to see your wonderful topic work :)


If you have any issues regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact either of us via email on:  OR



Please encourage your child to read daily. As children get older it is still important for parents/carers to read with their children, discuss new vocabulary and ask questions to check understanding of their book as well as to support accurate reading.

Children’s reading records must be signed by a parent/carer after hearing them read.

Reading records should be brought to school daily because the children use them in our Drop Everything and Read sessions.  



Weekly spelling lists will be given out in the children’s homework book at the beginning of each half term. Please practise these throughout the week leading up to the spelling test each Thursday. Spelling tests will be completed on paper and returned to parents inside their Reading Record books so that you can keep an eye on how they are progressing. 




Weekly mathematics facts will be given out in the children’s homework book at the beginning of each half term. Please encourage your child to practice these frequently so they know them off by heart.

Don't forget to play Times Table Rockstars 3 minutes+ daily.

Topic homework can be chosen from a list of creative and fun activities which are given out each half term. We ask Year 5 to complete 4 of these tasks. Children can write/draw in their blue books, take photos, make models or use computers to record their work.
