In Year 5, children will be set maths and spelling home learning termly that will be linked to their learning in class. These will be sent home at the beginning of the term. The maths home learning will be handed in weekly, on a Monday, to be initialled by the class teacher and returned.

The spelling test will be on a Friday, every week, unless specified. We would also like the children to be heard read 3 times a week at home. This is in addition to their guided reading session in school. Please find below a letter outlining in more detail the expectations for homework.
