Year 5 Homework

Homework will be set every Friday and will need to be returned to school, completed, by the following Thursday.


Each week, a spelling list will be sent home. This will be tested, in a random order, on Thursday or Friday the following week. 


Each child has been set a target times table. This will be tested on a Thursday. Both multiplication and division facts for the target times table need to be known. 


Write a Review


This week, the children have been lucky enough to take part in two school trips: Driffield Food and Farming Show and The Deep.


For homework, I would like the children to write a review of one (or both) of their school trips. 


Think about:

*What did you enjoy?

*What did you learn?

*What was the best part?

*What could have been made even better?

*Would you recommend the trip to other school children? Why?


Remember that the review should focus on activities that took place at the destination and the learning that took place - not the journey or lunch time!
