 Year 5 Homework Schedule 2019-20

The following is a guide to Year 5 homework. We appreciate all the support you can give to your child with their homework. Please contact the class teacher if you have any questions or your child is unable to complete their homework.


Spelling homework will be sent on Monday and will be collected in on Friday. Practising spellings or rules is most effective if done for 5/10 minutes a day.


We send home English and Maths on alternate weeks. Maths homework is the computer based ‘MyMaths’. We give the children until the following Tuesday to complete their English and Maths homework. 

Cornerstone tasks

Each half term, we will give children ideas for some tasks based on our cornerstones project. The idea of these tasks is to give children a longer amount of time to work on a project of their choice. Your child can choose how to organise their time on these projects.

Reading a little each day and continued practice of number and multiplication facts is also part of Year 5 homework.

We ask you please sign your child’s homework book each week. Homework books will be filled in at school on Monday and sent home so you can see what homework to expect each week.
