Year 5

Weekly homework

These are our weekly homework expectations:







5 X 10 minutes per week – mixture of home reading book and Reading Plus. Some children have a Nessy login instead of Reading Plus.  

Site code: rpstbar1 

A spelling list will be sent home each week. Children will highlight or star the words they will be tested on, although it is worth exploring all the words containing that letter pattern. The full lists are also available here.

Complete Maths – 20 minutes per week 


Times table rockstars – 3 X 10 minutes per week  



Year 5 PE days are currently Tuesdays and Fridays.


Please make sure reading diaries are in school everyday. Children can take home a colour banded book and a library book. Children can read any book from home or school towards their reading expectations each week however, they should read their colour banded book and to develop fluency this can be reread.
