Year 5 is an important year, building on the work started in Year 4 and preparing the children for year 6.
Reading is the key to success so we ask parents and carers to continue to read with their children as much as possible (every evening) for at least 20minutes as this will improve their fluency and understanding.
The children should then fill in their reading log. Please sign the log to say you have heard them read. Every Monday your child will receive a spelling homework. Please help them to learn these words ready for their test on Friday morning.
By the end of Yr 4 children should know their multiplication tables off by heart as it helps them calculate at a faster rate. Please hear your child chant their multiplication tables regularly or give them some quick fire questions. www.timestables.co.uk is a fun website and helps the children learn in a different way.
Google classroom has been set up for your child to complete homework other home learning. All children have been given their password and class code. Please regularly check what they are doing and that they are using this platform appropriately.
If you have any concerns or questions please speak to your child’s class teacher, Miss Foster (Yr Leader) or Mr Beckford (Phase Leader) so that we can sort out any issues immediately they arise.
Nightly homework: reading, spelling and multiplication tables.
