Each week, class 5 will receive their homework on Thursday to complete and hand in by the following Tuesday. Your child will be given maths, spag, spellings and times table practice activities. (Spelling tests will be taking place every Tuesday afternoon.)
For those children searching for a further challenge, below you will find the weekly maths challenge.
Over half terms and holidays, I would like for the children to complete a more creative task which will link in well to the following term's topic. This will be in the format of a homework takeaway which you will find below. This will be ongoing homework up until the next term. It is optional but if your child would like to complete any of the challenges, we would really love to see what they create.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding homework, please do not hesitate to speak to me on the playground from 8.50am or write a note in your child's planner.

This Week's Homework
Miss Reddey's maths group - To complete the 'Measures' sheet.
Mrs Reid's maths group - To complete the given worksheets.
To complete the 'Wild Word Endings' sheet.
To complete the 5, 7 and 11 times table sheet. (Children are encouraged to practice their times tables at home weekly.)
Many children learn in their own way. Therefore, I don't mind how the children practice their spellings but I would like to see some evidence of practice in their homework books. Some ideas: 'Look, Cover, Write, Check', writing sentences using each word, looking up the words in the dictionary, writing a piece of flash fiction (a short story) including the words etc.
Each week I will post a times table or maths challenge for the children to complete at home. This is entirely optional but for those seeking more of a demanding task.. give it a go!
The key to the maths challenges below is knowing your 'order of operations' or 'BODMAS'.
When you have a calculation like this: 2 + 3 x 4 = ___ , you must solve the multiplication section first so the calculation becomes: 3 x 4 = 12, 2 + 12 = 14.
If you would like to get a head start on this for next term, try the Easter maths challenges below for practice and follow this link which will explain it a little bit more in depth...
