Year 5 Newsletter:
Weekly homework in Year 5 is for your child to learn multiplication and division facts for up to 12 X12. This includes being able to answer multiplication and division questions out of sequence.
We also ask that your child reads at home at least 3 times in a week. This can be to themselves, to an adult or to a sibling/other member of the family. The important thing is that somebody is then able to talk with your child about what they have read. For more information about how to help your child with their comprehension and inference skills, please feel free to speak to your child's teacher.
Pupils will also be given regular English, Maths, Topic or Science homework to complete.
Children should bring their P.E. kits into school on a Monday and then take it home on a Friday, meaning their kits should be in school all week.
Please remember P.E. kits should include: black shorts/joggers, a white t-shirt, a dark coloured jumper or a Broom Leys hooded jumper and a pair of plimsolls (indoor) and a pair of trainers (outdoors).
