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.
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.
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.
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.

Autumn Term Quest
Our Autumn Term quest is 'Groovy Greeks'
The quest is based on the history curriculum, we will also be linking our English lessons. The children will be writing non-chronological reports about mythical creatures and writing their own Greek Myth.
Below is a curriculum overview of the learning Eagles will be doing during our autumn quest.
During the autumn Term our class texts will include:
Who Let The Gods out
Written by Maz Evans,
Elliot has so far succeeded in keeping his mum’s illness a secret but now the money is running out and things are getting desperate.
When a young Zodiac goddess, Virgo, lands in his back garden, Elliot thinks he might see a way to resolve some of his difficulties but, instead, the pair manage to accidentally release Thanatos - the immortal death-daemon - from centuries of imprisonment.
With a wicked megalomaniac on the loose, Elliot and Virgo are out of their depth so must call on the help of Zeus and other long-retired gods to recapture the fugitive. But can they get to Thanatos before he gets to take over the world?
We have class copies but you are welcome to purchase copies for your child. Please make sure all personal copies are named!
