All homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the Thursday of the following week. Homework will consist of spellings, Literacy and Maths activities.
Spellings will either be taken from the approved list of Year 5 and 6 words, or focus on a particular phoneme (sound) each week. A spelling test will take place each Friday.
The focus for Maths homework will be linked to the work covered in class and revising number skills. Some work will focus on problem solving in maths.
The focus for Literacy homework will be developing grammar and punctuation knowledge, reading comprehension and writing skills.
Homework should last no longer than 45 minutes per week. Please help your child with the tasks and discuss their work with them.
In addition, children should be reading each night and recording this in their reading diaries.
