Kestrels Yr 5

What home learning is set?

Kestrels (Year 5)

Children in Year 5 and 6 will spend longer on homework in preparation for the demands of Key Stage 3 and the tasks set will reflect this.

  • Daily reading recorded in a home reading diary.
  • Weekly spellings
  • English and Maths activities (includes online tasks)
  • Project tasks 2/3 times per term to support the wider curriculum (e.g. science, history, geography)
  • Regular learning of times-tables up to 12 x 12

In addition to the above the teacher may set additional personalised work for pupils to reinforce learning support or intervention programmes.

Weekly Spellings

Each week your child will be set spellings to be learnt.  These spellings will come from the national curriculum word lists for each year group, from the rules or patterns stated in the national curriculum or may be topic specific vocabulary.  The children will be tested on the spellings on a Friday. Please ensure your child returns their completed spelling work in their yellow home spelling log. 

Home learning will be set Friday 18th September due in Thursday 1st October

Please ensure your child brings their home learning log into school on Thursday 1st October so they can share it with the class. Their home learning log will be returned to them on Friday 2nd October for their new home learning work.
