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.
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.
