Homework, Spellings & Maths


Every Friday we will have a spelling test. The new spellings will be given out on a Friday. There will usually space for personal spellings on the sheet as well. This allows for 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  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 4 and 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.





Homework will be set termly in a pick 'n' mix style.  There will be 3 hand in dates each term (details on each term's homework sheet).
