Reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. In Year 5, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading, reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record. 

Homework is sent out on a Thursday and is due back in the following Tuesday. Homework will usually consist of spellings and a piece of Maths homework. Occasionally, children may be asked to create a project to present in class. 

Thank you for your continued support.
