Welcome to Year 5
Miss Welsh, Miss Younger and Mr Worsley.
Homework Information for Parents
In Year 5, the children will be given 5 pieces of homework each week: Spellings, Literacy, Maths, Science and Topic.
We also expect that your child reads for at least 15 minutes a day. We sometimes set a task linked to the book we are reading in our guided reading groups.
If you would like to carry out extra activities here are some options you may wish to choose:
- discussing key characters and settings
- making a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings
- discussing the book with your child and the events that occur
Spellings are given every Friday which must be learnt and practiced using sentences DAILY as we carry out a Spellcheck on the following Friday.
Maths homework Homework will be set on Mathletics every week and will be based on the topic we have been learning that week
Science homework is linked to the unit we are learning about in class.
Topic homework is linked to the unit we are learning about in class and is completed on the blog
Please ensure that your child is completing homework and bringing it into school on the days it is due in. We appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
Supporting your child at home
Supporting your child at home:
We have provided some ideas for how to work with your child at home to support the skills they need at school. We have included documents about supporting your child in reading, writing and with their speaking and listening skills. It is vital that home and school work together to help children reach their full potential. We hope that this will give you a few ideas about how this can be achieved. Please let us know if you have found this useful or have any further questions.
Your child now has access to 'Mathletics'. It is an exciting opportunity for your child to have a lot of fun whilst consolidating their maths skills. All pupils in KS2 at Chatsworth have access and teachers will be setting homework for them to complete online. Please do not worry if you do not have access to the internet, we will ensure that your child has an oppoprtunity to log on in school.
It is a completely safe and secure website with many thousands of schools around the world using it everyday. Since its launch, it has been proven to raise standards in mathematics across the globe.
We can't wait to hear what the children think and see how much more motivated they become! If you have any questions, please see your child's teacher.
