Year 5 had a fantastic time on our Roman Day-they had the opportunity to observe/handle artefacts, dress up in Roman armour, play games from the era, design mosaics and participate in drama activities.

Homework

In Year 5 we will be completing a range of homework activities, most will be set on a regular basis, some might be occasional and linked to our termly topic.

Reading-You need to read for a minimum of x3 a week at home. Each time you read, please enter the details into your reading diary and ask an adult at home to sign the entry for you. Reading diaries are due in for checking every Friday.

Spellings- Every Friday you will be given a set of spellings to practise throughout the week at home. We will also complete activities during the week at school on the spelling rule sent home. Every Friday you will have a spelling test during English to test you on the spellings you've been working on. You don't need to hand in your practise sheet but please be prepared for your test!
