Home Learning

Year 5 have been set a longer homework project based on our topic, the ancient Greeks.

Children are expected to read at home for at least 15 minutes every day and complete their reading record.

In addition, children should spend 40-60 minutes on Maths Whizz weekly.  This could be broken down, eg 4 x 15 minute sessions or 3 x 20 minutes so that they get the most benefit. We will send home half termly reports to show how your children are doing. Certificates are awarded each week to encourage effort and progress. We also ask that you spend time at home making sure the children know their times tables to 12x12.

Longer Term

Twice per term, your child will bring home an extended homework project, which is intended to encourage them to show some learning in a creative way. These tasks will be published on the website and the children will get a clear deadline. Time will be set aside for the children to present what they have done to the rest of the class. This homework could involve other members of the family and is intended to be a fun way for children to learn outside the classroom.
