Under the current circumstances, homework will need to remain at home but you can always email a picture to Mrs. Clark Murphy so your learning can be shared with the class.
Spellings will be tested on Thursday mornings. To help you learn you spellings have a go at some of these activities:
- Draw a picture and hide your spelling words inside.
- Type out your spellings, using different fonts for each word.
- Write your spellings in different coloured pens or pencils.
- Cut and stick letters from old newspaper and magazines to write out your spellings.
- Write a silly story and try to include all your spelling words.
Children in year 5 are expected to know all their times tables facts (both multiplication and division) up to 12x12. Make sure you keep practising, regularly at home to help you in your maths lessons. If you need any ideas to help you practise, please get in contact with Mrs. Clark Murphy.
We will be continuing to quiz the children every week on their times tables facts in school.
