It is very important that children in Year 5 read regularly - they all have a school reading book and reading record which they should be bringing home and using every day.
They also need to practise their times tables regularly as this will help them in almost all other areas of Maths. All children have a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars and we encourage them to use this at home as well as at school.
Every Tuesday, Year 5 children will be given a piece of Spelling homework. This needs to be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday when they will also have a spelling test in class.
HALF TERMLY PROJECT
