Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

 

The following link is  a recommended reading list for year 5 students.  These books are suitable for 9-10 year old readers and encompass a wide range of genres and text-types as well as catering for all ability ranges.

Spelling words assessed each Tuesday.

Learners choose which list to practice spellings from.  This is to encourage the learners to take ownership of their learning and make good learning choices. When practicing at home, ensure you understand the meaning of the word and can use it within a sentence. 

In order to strengthen the understanding of the spelling and meaning of the words.  We would like students to write a sentence for each spelling word you have ensuring you write it in the correct context.
