In Year 5, Maths and English homework are given out every Wednesday and are expected back in by the following Monday. Our Homework Club night is Wednesday and children are encouraged to attend so that they can receive support if needed.
Homework for other subjects may be set and given at any time.
As well as helping your child with their homework, please help them with their spellings and their mental manipulation of numbers to increase their confidence and speed. They will need to know the times tables off by heart and to be able to recall multiplication facts out of context and possibly using a range of vocabulary, eg. What is six lots of five? Six times five? Six multiplied by five? What happens if you divide thirty by five? What are the multiples of five to fifty? What is the product of six and five? These are great for long car journeys!
