Year 5 Homework
(please bring completed English homework into school in your homework journals – this will either be a reading comprehension or SPAG activity)
Practise your times-tables using Times-tables Rockstars
Spellings (new spellings will be given out on Friday and the Spelling Test will be on Friday also)
When you click on the spelling link below, you will notice that the format of spelling groups is different for year 5 and this is to ensure that all children in the class are exposed to the year 5 spelling rules and statutory spelling words with recaps of year 4 spelling rules.
In our Year 5 spelling Lessons, we will be focusing on the Year 4/5 spelling rule for that week as a whole class.
- All children will learn the commonly misspelt words each week: these are based on commonly misspelt words in class.
- All children will learn the statutory spelling words each week – these will be the year 5/6 statutory words but we will be recapping the year 3/4 statutory words also.
- Your child will be asked to either learn the challenge 1, challenge 2 or challenge 3 words for that week.
(Each week there will be at least 12 spelling words to learn/at most 15 words)

MyMaths Homework (use your login to access your homework)/
The school has subscribed to MyMaths, an interactive Maths website for teaching, learning, revising and enjoying mathematics. Usernames and passwords have been given to pupils in years 1 – 6 and sent home to parents in a letter.
- How do I find the homework my child has been set? When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s new school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.
