Year 5 Homework


Reading Log: The children are required to log the number of pages they are reading and the book they are reading in the blue Reading Record book. This is ongoing and is to be completed as and when they have read any pages of their reading book (or other text) at home or at school (at least three times a week). Please check your child’s Reading Record each weekend and sign it to be checked on Monday.

Spellings: Handed out on Monday and tested the following Monday. These can be found in the back of the blue Reading Record book.

Either a reading record question (RRQ) OR Grammar investigation will be given each Monday, due the following Monday.

Reading Record Question : This is to be answered in detail in the back of the blue Reading Record book with references and examples.

Grammar Log:
A different grammatical area will be discussed each week and follow up work should be recorded in the Grammar Log or completed on the Grammar Bug website.

Times tables

Children should be continuously practicing ALL the times tables which are then tested on Mondays.

General Homework (Homework Diary)

A piece of homework, based on a subject area covered during the week, or to be covered the following week, will be handed out on Friday and due in on Wednesday.

It is important that Homework Diaries and Reading Records are signed each week by a parent once homework is completed. If you have any queries, write a note in the Parent/Teacher comments section. The homework diaries will be checked on Mondays.
