There will be weekly maths and English tasks given out each Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. These will be related to the learning from the week.
Children are expected to read at home for at least 20 minutes every day and complete their reading record.
Practise times tables little and often. As the maths curriculum in year 5 needs instant recall of number facts so that children can move to the next level of understanding, children need to know all of the times tables to 12x12 thoroughly and be able to use them to solve division problems too.
Homework is always documented on the VLE (Virtual learning Environment). Your child has a log in and password stuck inside their reading record. The VLE can be accessed by clicking on 'Our Learning' and 'Pupil Area', then scrolling down to the clickable logo. There is also a use guide there for parents.
