Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.
Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension. Reading Record books must be brought into school every Tuesday to be checked. We encourage children to write a reflective comment at least once a week when returning their Reading Record book to school. Children should share their opinions, inferences and/or predictions about what they read. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to. Children may also borrow books from the Junior Library.
Year 5 Recommended Reading
The following link is a recommended reading list for year 5 students. These books are suitable for 9-10 year old readers and encompass a wide range of genres and text-types as well as catering for all ability ranges.
Please practise reading and writing your spellings. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word. There is a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet below that you can use to help you. Spellings will be tested through a dictation each week.
This week’s spellings:
Spellings are updated every Tuesday and assessed the following Tuesday.
The word-lists for years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6 are a mixture of words learners frequently use in their writing and those which are often misspelled. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, however with enough practise and resilience we know you will get the hang of them!
Children have the choice to practise and learn either List 1 or List 2 words. The choice is theirs!
You can print your child's times tables challenge to practise at home.
