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

Letter re homework



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. 




This homework is optional.  


Below is the spelling work we covered in class on Monday.  You do not need to learn the spellings but you could read through the spellings and try breaking them into syllables to help you spell them accurately.


Word of the week

This work is optional.  

Every week in class, we have a 'word of the week'.  Posted below is a copy of the work done in class.  If you wish to, you can read through this work to remind yourself of the meaning of the word and how to use it in sentences.

Word of the week: traditional
Related words: tradition, traditionally

Read the sentences then answer these questions: 1) What does the word mean?  2) What class of words does it belong to - verb, noun, adjective or adverb?   Then try writing your own sentences with traditional or its related words.
In this country, it is traditional for those people who celebrate Christmas, to exchange presents on Christmas Day.
At Chinese New Year, it is traditional for Chinese families to thoroughly clean their houses.  They believe this will sweep away bad luck.
