Autumn Term Science Vocabulary
Year 5 non-negotiables
Each week two pieces of homework will be set.
One will concentrate on Maths and the other will be spellings. Spellings must be learnt thoroughly at home ready for a test the following week.
Homework may also be to complete an activity on Education City. Teachers will be able to check whether they have accessed this activity so please encourage your child to complete them.
Home reading is very important.
Make sure you read regularly and get your parents/carers to sign your Home Reading Diary!
You must try and read at least four times a week. You need to read for 20 minutes or more then get your parents to ask you questions to check you have understood your book.
Try using this website to increase your knowledge of Maths and a range of some other subjects!
Use this website to help your child with reading. There are lots of ebooks, and even a parents' section. If your child uses this at home, write it in their reading record.
