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!!
As well as completing ONE of the homework sheets for maths, all pupils are expected to score a minimum of 1000 points on Mathletics every week.
Please read through the spellings for the week and last week's spellings. There will be a test next week.
