Y5 Homework

What homework is given in Acer Class?

Pupils in Acer class are expected to complete the following homework tasks:


Reading - Daily

In the upper juniors we encourage children to read for at least 30 mins every evening. This doesn't always have to be with an adult, but if you can hear them read and ask them some questions about their book that would be fantastic. Please see the question stems in the 'Useful Resources' folder on the class page. Reading can be done in the car on the way to clubs, while you're cooking dinner, in the garden, at the park - where ever takes the children's fancy!

Once children have finished their reading books, they can log into Accelerated Reader to complete quizzes on their book.


MyMaths - Weekly

MyMaths is set every Monday and due in the following Monday. We use it to help consolidate the children's learning.  


Spelling Shed - Weekly

 I set spelling lists on Spelling Shed each week. The spelling rule is taught in class and the children are expected log in online a couple of times a week and play the spelling games to consolidate their spelling knowledge.


Times Tables Rockstars - Weekly

Times Tables Rockstars is a fantastic resource for children to use to practise their times tables. It's a fun website and easy to use. They should log in and play against others as much as possible!


Topic - Termly

Pupils homework projects will be displayed as part of the express section at the end of the unit of work. Pupils can choose whether to present their homework as written work, ICT or something creative.  If pupils decide to choose something creative such as a painting then they should choose either written work or I.C.T. for their next homework project so that they are using different skills throughout the year. Some ideas for homework projects can be found in below.
