Year Five

We have shared the half termly homework here to support with home learning. 

Spellings are sent home weekly in the red Homework Folder.


Autumn 2 2020


Maths – This half term we are continuing to learn all the multiplication and division facts up 12 x 12 to improve our accuracy and fluency. Please practise on TTS Rockstars where specific times tables have been set up in the ‘Garage’ and ‘Arena’ areas. Remember there are other ideas on our school website. Each week the children will be tested on their tables. These tests ask the children to quickly recall both multiplication and division facts so they need to be confident with both to improve their Rock Star status.

TTS Rockstars –


Spellings – In class, we are currently revising and applying our knowledge of plurals as well as learning space and science fiction vocabulary for our science learning. You should practise your spellings every day using the activities in the literacy booklet sent home or strategies from class. Their spelling result will be recorded in their Reading Diary.


Please see the lists sent home for your spellings. If you have learned the words on your list, you might want to challenge yourself to learn some of the other spellings on the lists.



Reading –During our lessons this week, we have been exploring and learning vocabulary. Do you always know what all the words mean in the text you are reading? Check in a dictionary or with an adult. Write about what you find out in the comment section of your reading record.


Please ensure you read for at least 20 minutes, 4 times per week, and that your reading record is signed by an adult to show this has happened. Do not forget to write the title of the book(s) you read and you (or your parents) should write a comment.


Please sign your child’s homework diary when the reading, spelling and maths homework is completed.


Topic Homework – Y5 ‘Famous Ships’


For your project this half term, we would like you to research another famous ship. In our topic learning, we have been looking at the Titanic and the events of April 15th 1912. We would like you to research another famous ship e.g. HMS Victory, HMS Belfast, the Mary Rose or another ship of your choosing.


Once you have completed your research, please present the information you have found in a way that you would like. You could make a PowerPoint, a poster or write an information text (remember to include sub-headings). Your project will need to include writing and pictures. Ensure you use your best handwriting if it is handwritten. We are looking for your best presentation.


This task should be handed in by Wednesday 2nd December 2020.


You can choose to handwrite it or make it on the computer. It needs to be bright and eye catching. The writing must be clear and neat with correct spelling. Remember we have shared our expectations for this project with you to help you get started.
