Year 5 & 6

Homework Provision

Reading – Pupils need to aim to read each night at home and achieve at least 3 signed signatures from parents/carers over a week. Children will then receive stamps on their Rainbow Reading Cards for reading at home.

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) – Children will receive a weekly GPS activity. This will not be differentiated for year groups but will link to the learning in class.

Spellings – A list of spellings will be sent home weekly, ready to be tested in school the following week. Children have access to Spelling Shed to help them at home.

Maths – Homework will be given to children when it is appropriate to further embed a specific skill or new piece of knowledge.

Children are expected to know their times tables up to 12×12 by the start of Year 5.  These must remain part of their weekly homework if they do not yet know all of them. Children have access to the online learning sites ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ and ‘Prodigy’ to help them.
