Year 5 and 6 Home Learning 30th November

Year 5 and 6 Home Learning- Friday 30th November


Reading – Please encourage your child to read every day for at least 20 minutes (They should be over 50% of their AR target)

Spellings – Spellings will be given out on Monday. In addition to learning the 10 words (sent out Monday) please use spellodrome to practice the previous rules

Times Tables Rockstars– it is crucial that year 5 and 6 children know their times table facts up to 12 x 12 – this really supports other areas in maths. Have a go at improving your score to progress through your ‘Rockstar’ career.

Arithmetic (Year 6)- Complete the questions (making sure you use your squares in your book to show the workings) We will mark this together as a class on Thursday so we can spend time going over any misconceptions or new strategies.




Our new topic is called ‘Let’s Celebrate.’ Children are working in groups to learn about popular festivals around the world. They are focusing on either: Christmas, Diwali or Hanukkah.


On Friday 14th December, at 2:30pm, we would like to invite you to our celebration event, which will take place in the year 5 and 6 classrooms.


During the celebration event, the children will set up a table displaying all of their work about the festival. In addition to the information and artwork they produce in school, they will need to think about: 1) how to decorate their table and 2) the food which is eaten as part of the celebration. Therefore, for their home-learning, please can they cook/bake a traditional celebratory dish (which relates to their chosen festival) ready to bring and enjoy as part of the celebration event).


We’ll look forward to seeing you there!
