P.E

Thursday  - Indoor P.E

Homework

Year 5 pupils usually receive English and maths homework  each week. All homework will be posted on Teams, and unless otherwise stated, returned via Teams as well. 

If the children have My Maths for their Maths homework, this is marked online by My Maths straight away and is submitted online the day it is completed. 

 

 

Spellings

The children are given a list of words at the beginning of each half term. They are taught the spelling rule at the beginning of the week and then the test is usually carried out on a Friday. In the daily activities section there is a document with different ways to help the children learn the spellings.

 

Timestables

The children all have access to TTRockstars, which they are encouraged to use to help them improve their speed at answering questions. Occasionally they will have time in school to use TTRockstars. When playing in Garage and Arena games, TTRockstars uses data-informed algorithm, which issues each learner with questions that are just right for them, every time. This will optimise every practice session and accelerate their progress to becoming a times tables rock star! 

 

On a Tuesday the children take part in a Club 99 challenge, they are given their tests  so they can share with you how they have done. 

Club 99 is a set of challenges that get increasingly more difficult. The children are given 8 minutes to complete the questions. 

 

Reading

The children are expected to read at least 4 times a week and we would the children to record it in their reading journals.  At the front of the books there are questions that they should use to help them with the comment. The books will be checked weekly.  

The children receive awards for the number of times they have read.
