Home Learning

Spellings and Mental Maths.

All home learning will be set here every Friday and will be tested the following Friday.

Please note, these spellings and mental maths will be tested on Friday 17th June due to half term and our residential trip in the first week back.


Reading underpins all of our learning and development and is great for our imagination! Please read your book daily and to an adult at home regularly, recording all reading in your reading record.

If you have finished your reading book and need to complete the quiz for it, please access your Accelerated Reader account here: ARP access

If you have a Lexia account, please access it here to complete at home: Lexia access


This week’s words to learn are:






Parents: all words are selected from the age-appropriate National Curriculum lists, these are words your child has to know by the end of Year 5.   Please encourage them to practice at home during the week, and carry out an occasional test to prepare them for Friday morning.  The tests are linked to spelling objectives and learning during the week.

Mental Maths

This week the children will be tested on:

7x, 8x, 9x and 10x times tables facts.

The children will be tested on a selection of 7x, 8x, 9x and 10x times tables facts from 1 x 7 = 7 up to 12 x 10 = 120
