‘Where Children Come First’

Year 5 Home Learning

Below are a few details about Year 5 Home Learning. If you need any further help with what your child should be doing at home or how you can help, then please feel free to pop in and see us.



Spellings are handed out on a Monday. The children will have eight words to learn each week. Six words follow the rule that is being studied in class and the other two are catch-up or personal error words. The children need to copy out each word once each day and, at sometime during the week, write five extended sentences for the rule words. There is also a different spelling activity each week. Journals are due in on Fridays when there will be a review or test.



The children are expected to read at least five times a week. We encourage the children to read as often as possible (for 10-15minutes) to any willing listener! If your child is a capable reader then you might choose to discuss what you or they have read to explore their understanding of the text. We ask that they record when they have read at home. We also use their reading journal as a communication book between school and home. Please feel free to record any other books/magazines/comics etc.. your child enjoys to read. The children also have access to a library book of their choice. They have an opportunity at least once a week to change this book. 

Times Tables:

Finally for this half term, there is a times table project. Details of this are attached below.
