Welcome to Class 5's page!
Homework will be handed out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday to give chance for it to be marked. The year 5 children will receive one piece of homework a week; either a piece of Maths or a piece of grammar or sentence level work. The year 6 children will receive two pieces of homework a week; a piece of Maths and a piece of grammar or sentence level work The homework will be something that has been taught before; therefore it is for the children to do independently where possible. The children will also have the grid homework to complete over the half term; the children must complete five pieces of this and it is due in on the last Monday of the half term. May I remind you that if the children fail to complete their homework (either aspect) they will lose their golden time and complete it then.
We encourage the children to read every night and to write in their reading records at least 3 times a week. We recommend that children in upper key stage 2 still read to an adult a few times a week, this allows the child a chance to discuss the book; its themes, features and language, all of which are important for your child's comprehension and literacy skills.
We have introduced a new spelling scheme to Daresbury called 'Spell Bee'. This scheme looks at year group spelling rules. The children will have a spelling lesson once a week that will look at the different spelling rules. There is a list of the autumn terms rules on the website, but please be aware this is NOT a comprehensive list, your child will learn a rule not a list of words.
