Y5 / 6 Spelling List

Some changes this year: 

This year ALL homework will be placed in a shared folder on Google Drive.

Every child has a username and password that they can use to access Google Drive from any computer. Your child has also been sent an email with the link for the homework folder. If there are issues accessing the Drive, please speak to a member of the Year 5 team as soon as possible.  

In any event, children will be given a hard copy of their Literacy and Numeracy homework every Friday. 

Children will also have access to a hard copy of the Topic Grid in their homework book. Additional resources needed to complete any of the activities on the grid will be placed in the shared folder on Google Drive.

This term children can earn points for each grid task that they do. A prize will be given to the child who obtains the most points for their tasks. 

A minimum of 3 activities are required to be handed in each half-term.

If you have any questions or concerns in relation to homework, please contact your child's class teacher. 


 Please also remember to complete your Mathletics challenges each week!

Year 5 Autumn Term

This term our topic is Super Space!

Children will begin the topic by exploring our Solar System and the relationship between the Earth, the moon and the sun. Over the course of the half term, the children will get to know about the unique characteristics of each of the planets in our Solar System as well as the particular properties that make Earth such a habitable planet. 

Children will dive into the past to unravel significant historical events such as the 'Space Race' and men landing on the moon. They will be given the opportunity to provide their own thoughts and opinions on these events and perhaps look into where technology will take us next.
