Subject Long Term Plans

Our Homework Expectations:

Reading Plus to be done for approximately 30 minutes at home twice weekly. This can be written in the reading record to count as a reading session.

Reading – reading daily if possible (on days not doing Reading Plus) and record this in the individual reading records.

Spellings – a list of spelling words will be sent home and set on Spelling Shed. The children learn the words and will be tested on them the following week in school.

Maths – maths will usually be set on My Maths and/or Times Table Rockstars. This will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday evening. The maths work will link to the objectives being taught in school.

If for any reason your child is unable to do their homework or they struggle with it, a brief note from home in their reading record would be appreciated. Other homework may be set, but this will not be regular.

We are very much looking forward to working with your child and hope that they will enjoy their time in Year 5. We work best when there is an effective partnership with parents. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss an aspect of your child’s education, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
