Our topic for this half term is Great Yarmouth; please see details
below. We are sure that it will provide lots of memorable experiences for our
Curriculum Information for Parents:
Homework is an opportunity for
parents to share learning with their children, whilst revisiting or extending
classroom learning; it helps the children to move on. It also helps the
children to be prepared for High School homework.
Reading- daily reading, with a
child reading to an adult and/or an adult reading to a child, and discussing
the text (at least 50 mins per week)- parents please sign each time to enable
your child to be entered into a weekly draw for a prize
Spellings- weekly tests on a
Friday- words based on a spelling rule (or rules) that the children learn and
words from the Curriculum 2014 common exception words lists
Spellings- individual spelling

Times tables- including mental
Maths- weekly tests on a Friday
CGP Maths for Y5, to be
completed and marked at home, for consolidation and revision of learning
If homework isn't done, then
children will be expected to catch up with this in school, so that they are not
falling behind their peers. We are always ready to talk through homework with
children or parents; please pop in to make an appointment.
