Curriculum overview
Year 5 Autumn 2022.jpg
Homework in Year 5.

  • As we get to Upper Key Stage 2 it is expected that children read at home every night to an adult. This should be recorded in their reading record when they have read.

  • Maths and English homework will be sent home each week and will need to be completed by the following week. Information on when it is set and needs to be completed by will be written in the children's diaries. There is plenty of opportunities to discuss their homework with a member of staff if they are finding something difficult. 

  • An additional piece of homework linked to other curriculum areas may be sent home also. Children will write down the hand in date in their school planners when this is the case.

  • Children will also need to practice their times table facts to ensure that they can rapidly recall these facts and to also aid their confidence.

  • Spellings will be sent home every Tuesday and this will be tested the following Tuesday.

PE information.

Year 5 have PE on a Monday and Wednesday.

Please ensure that your child has their full P.E kits in school.

All children should have black shorts, a red t-shirt and pumps.
