Year 5 Homework


Mrs Brown and Miss Saul do not set an English or Maths task for the holidays.  However, you must read regularly during the next two weeks so that when you come back, you are ready to change your book on the first Tuesday, and every child must achieve at least 1000 points in Mathletics.  Some children are still not doing this each week but it is part of the Maths homework each week so please make sure those 1000 points are achieved. 

We LOVE reading!

We LOVE reading! 1

Please remember to listen to your child read regularly every week at home. You can discuss what they like/dislike about their chosen library book, who their favourite characters are, ask them to give you a synopsis of the story or ask them to predict what they think is going to happen.

Sharing books and reading regularly can increase your child's confidence and widen their vocabulary - in Year 5, we love reading!!

Example of questions to ask your child when listening to them read
