Year 5 – Home Learning

Weekly Homework

At Mengham Junior School, regular home learning supports the children’s progress in maths and English by giving them practice at the following key skills:

Reading, times tables, mental maths calculations and spellings

Inside cover of your child’s reading log, there will be a reminder about when homework is set and reviewed, how often it should be completed and a list of websites and passwords required for each activity.  There will be space inside the log to record reading for at least 5 days a week.  We request that you please sign your child’s log each day so that class teachers are able to track reading completion.  Reading logs will be collected and redistributed every Thursday.

In addition, each term there will be a reading challenge and an optional competition. Completion of the reading challenge involves reading a total of 8 books (these will be checked in your child’s reading log).
