‘Welcome to our valley. We are proud to grow here together’


Homework will set on Friday and will be expected to be completed by the following Wednesday.

Each week a piece of Maths and English homework will be set. Spellings will be set.


We ask for the children to complete their homework independently as work set will usually consolidate their learning during the week. However we do appreciate that sometimes they will need assistance.


If you have any questions regarding homework please do not hesitate to ask.



  • Read your Reading Book and/or complete your Book Review
  • Log into and complete any set work
  • Log into and practise some Times Tables Rockstars

Your log in details are in the front of your Reading Record.



In Year 5, reading is vitally important. Children will be expected to bring their reading books into school every day.  Children will have the opportunity have an adult listen to them read and to change their book if necessary at least once each week.  As well as this, we will be having daily reading lessons and other opportunities to read throughout the week.  All children are signed up to a fantastic reading resource called Reading Eggs.  This can be accessed at home.  Click below to log in.
