In Year 5, we expect students to read at least five times a week and to learn the set spellings and tables ready for a test. Maths homework will be set each Thursday and is due in for marking on Monday (Mrs Dennis’s group) or Tuesday morning (Mr Gregory’s group). homework will be set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Tuesday.  Reading comprehension homework is set on a Friday and due back the following Thursday.  If homework is not completed your child will be required to complete the work during lunchtimes on Wednesday in our homework club.

To support our topics, there will be a range of optional homework tasks that can be completed each half term. These tasks will be celebrated within the year group and rewarded with dojo points, power points, etc.


The topic this term is ‘Bake-it’ and will involve some baking both at school and home. The main focus for the topic is how materials change during heating, cooling and freezing.  We will be tasting different types of bread and food items please inform us if your child should not take part in this for allergy reasons.
