Spelling

Every Friday, the children will receive a spelling home-learning activity linked to the spelling rule that we have been learning in school. Sometimes we may revisit previous spelling rules that have been taught in order to strengthen the children’s memory pathways.

 

This activity should be completed and handed in by the following Friday.

 

A link to the Year 5 and 6 spelling list can be found on our school website. These words are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. Children are expected to know all these words by the end of year 6. Please take some time to look at these spellings with your child.  

 

Maths 

In Year 5 and Year 6, Maths Home-Learning will be sent out on a Friday and will be based on the current week's learning. 

This activity should be completed and handed in by the following Friday.

 

Children are also expected to regularly use ‘Timetable Rockstars’ to improve their rapid recall of multiplication facts. This term, we are holding a competition in school to see who can earn the most points using Times Rockstars…

Year 5 vs Year 6

The competition will run until the end of term and the winning year group will receive a prize.

 

Reading

We always have a huge push on reading in school every year... however this year reading is a priority in our school improvement plan. We have invested in more brand new books for the reading areas in each class and we hope the children will love reading these books to you at home! We will be holding lots of exciting reading events in school this year to inspire the children to read more.

 

Your child will also bring home reading books from school.  Reading for five or ten minutes a day can make a real difference with their progress. We expect the children to read at least 3 times a week at home. Reading records will be checked by an adult in school each week. Please complete your child’s reading record to show evidence of their reading. Your child’s reading record also contains reading activities that will support them in engaging with their books they are reading.
