Garrett Hall Primary School - Year 5


   We are so excited to work with you all and have so many lovely things planned for the year.

Homework will all be online and consists of TT Rockstars were weekly competitions are set up, Spelling Shed with your weekly spellings and Oxford Owl for your child to choose a book at their own level.  


**Homework should be completed at least 3 times per week.**


In Year 5 spellings are set on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Spelling lists will be issued on a half termly basis. Spelling shed also has the weekly spelling as another way for your child to practice. Should you misplace your spelling list, you will find a copy on this page. Your Spelling Shed passwords will remain the same from last year so you will be able to continue as normal straight away.

The children are expected to know by heart all of their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. With this year being so different we will continue to support your child with this challenge into Year 5. All of these times tables have been added to TT Rockstars so the children can practice weekly and compete against their friends. Times tables, will also be tested on a Friday.

Reading - We are signed up for Oxford Owl. On here, you will be able to access a range of ebooks for free. They can be filtered by age or reading level. So, have a look through the range of genres and pick yourselves a new book.

(If they do not bring a swimming cap they will be unable to swim!)

These are all activities YOU can complete independently!
