Homework, Spellings & Maths

Homework Term 1

The "pic'n'mix" homework sheet for term 1 is below.  There are 3 hand in dates. Unfortunately due to the current restrictions, models and pieces of art work cannot come into school. If you choose to complete one of these activities please hand in (or email) a photo of your work instead. 


Every Monday there will be a new set of spellings given out and the spellings from the previous week will be tested.  There will usually be 5-6 new spellings and space for personal spellings as well. This allows for the spellings to be tailored to the individual child.

The personal spellings may be individual spellings from your child's work, a previously taught spelling rule or spellings from the statutory year 5 and 6 word list. 

If there are no words provided in the personal spellings section and your child is confident with the set spellings for that week then please encourage them to choose words to practise from the statutory spelling lists. This could be a spelling from a previous year group if required. The statutory spelling lists can be found below.


There will be activities set on Mathletics each week. These will link to our learning in class or are revision of previously taught skills.  Live Mathletics is an excellent way to reinforce mental maths skills.

Times Table Rockstars is great for learning times table facts. Please continue to practise times tables including division facts as this will help with many of the year 5 maths objectives.


Below are some key skills that you may wish to reinforce at home in addition to using Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars.
