Spellings- Spellings are set each week on a Friday with the expectation that they are learnt by the following Friday for a test. Spellings are different for Year 5 and Year 6 and follow the statutory guidelines for their age group. In addition to statutory spellings there are also a list of topic words given on a two weekly basis and are the same for both Year 5 and Year 6. Spelling books must come into school on a Friday so we can do our test in the back and stick next weeks spellings in.
Year 5 (tests 18/01, 25/01) Year 6 (test 18/01) Topic words
address fruit ancient
centre interest Sumer
early notice Mesopotamia
fruit separate cuneiform
interest weight jewellery
Mathletics- Mathletics homework is set weekly (usually on a Thursday) and is in line with what we have been learning in class. This work is monitored regularly and is set to ensure that weeks learning is consolidated before moving on. If there is a difficulty accessing Mathletics at home there is a Mathletics club run on a Tuesday lunchtime.
