Homework

In Year 5, we set homework which reinforces what has been taught in class. Homework is an opportunity for pupils to further practise or apply skills they have learnt and discuss their learning with adults at home. We appreciate the time you take to support your child with their homework. A plastic folder is recommended for storing homework so that books and sheets stay protected and neat.

 

We have been impressed with your homework so far this year.
