Year 5 Homework 

Homework will be set every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.

Children will be set one piece of English/Topic homework and one piece of maths homework each week to complete.

All English/Topic homework will be set using Google Classroom and will need to be handed in on that platform too. If you have any issues accessing Google Classroom please contact your child's class teacher.

Maths homework will be set using Mathletics. If your child is having any issues accessing Mathletics please contact your child's class teacher.

Both pieces of homework should take no longer than one hour to complete.

Children should be reading at least 20 minutes per day and recording it in their reading diary. They should record the title of the book, the pages they have read and a few sentences about what they are reading. They could summarise the main points, make a prediction or comment on a new event or character for example. Please refer to the back pages of the home learning diary for tips on how to support your child when reading at home with them.
