In Year Five, homework is set every week on Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday.
Homework will consist of the following:
In addition, this term we would like all children to regularly practise their times tables using Times tables Rocks Stars https://ttrockstars.com . Children should know their individual log ins/ passwords.
In Year Five, we encourage independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read at home every day, whether this be independently or with you. Regular reading is crucial to improving your child's writing skills - the most avid readers are often the best writers as they experience a range of different genres and author styles that can help them in their own independent writing. It is your child's responsibility to choose either a book from home or the classroom to have in school. Your child has been provided with a reading record to fill in whenever they read at home. Once your child has read four times, they will receive a raffle ticket to be entered into a prize draw at the end of the term.
Drop Everything and Read (DEAR)
DEAR takes place every day straight after lunch. The idea is everyone drops what they are doing and picks up a book and reads. This will last between 10-15 minutes and all you will hear is the turning of pages throughout the school while everyone enjoys their book including teachers!
PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday afternoons. It is important that your child has their PE kit in school from Monday until Friday as occasionally, this can change.
