Home Learning Journal:
As we are learning about space I want you to produce a creative piece of home learning that tells us about one aspect of the Solar system. It may be to answer one of the questions you asked in class. It could be a model, a poster, a leaflet, the possibilities are endless!
Return by: Friday 5th May
Reading: At least 20 minutes a day.

You will have up to 10 minutes to correctly answer as many as you can. What do you think you can score and how quickly can you gain perfection? Can you beat last week's time or score?

Year 5 Home Learning Overview
In Key Stage 2 we will be setting home learning tasks each week in reading, spelling and maths. Home learning tasks will be set on Fridays, posted on our class webpage. Please scroll down to see attachments at the bottom of the page.
Reading: Every day
Spelling: One activity a week
Times Tables: One activity a week
Mathletics: Two or three a week
I will talk to the children about their ‘home learning’ each week so that they know what they are doing. Some time the activities will be revising a concept, sometimes the activities will be practising something we are currently learning, sometimes the activities will be extending their learning.
Reading: At Houghton Primary School we ask that the children read every day at home. Your child can read their book from school (usually their ‘Accelerated Reader’ book) or a book from home. If they read a book from home they may be able to quiz on it in school if it is on the Accelerated Reader system. We can check for them in school.
How much the children read each day will vary. Some children will happily read for an hour, most for less. We would like all children to read for a minimum of 20 minutes a day to build on the reading that we do with them in school. The children will record the books they have read in their Reading Diaries. There is nothing to ‘hand in’. I will monitor the children’s reading progress through their work with them in reading activities/lessons in school, through the regular structured ‘reading conversations’ that I have with children and through the children’s outcomes and ‘engaged reading time’ on the Accelerated Reader programme which I check weekly.
Spelling: I will be setting spelling as a home learning task each week. I will set 15 spellings based on the rule we have studied. They do not need to ‘hand in’ any ‘work’ in to school. I will find out how they have got on with their spelling home learning when they test them on spelling – usually on Fridays. I will send their marked test home so that you can see how they have got on.
Times Tables: I will set a times table exercise each week
Mathletics: I will set two or three activities a week which need to be completed by the following Thursday.
Home Learning Journals: Every fortnight we will set the children a task which they will have a week to complete. The work will come home on a Friday and they will be expected to return this by the following Friday.
We want the children to approach each activity in as creative a manner as possible. For example they could include booklets, lift out flaps, use collage techniques or computers to actually have fun and enjoy completing the work set in a way which interests them.
