Term 1!
This term, homework will be available on Google Classroom.
Each week, there will be an English and Maths task.
When completing your homework, upload a clear photo if you can. If you need an exercise book with lines or squares to help you, please ask and we will provide you with one. If you are unable to upload photos, bring your homework book into school for your teacher to look at. 
Remember to tell us if there are any technical issues stopping you from accessing your Google Classroom. 
English and Maths homework will be set on Google Classrooms. Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Thursday morning. Spellings will be set each Friday (along with your homework) and you will be tested on the following Friday.
Your weekly spellings will be available on your Google Classroom. A spelling test will take place each week on a Friday. Along with your weekly spellings, remember to continue to practise the Year 5 and 6 spellings (find the doc. below). 
Times Table Rock-stars
You all have your own login details for TT Rock-stars (they have not changed and are the same as Year 4). You will have 5 games to complete each week; you will have time on a Monday to complete these games but if you wish to complete them at home, please do. Try to practise regularly as the more you practise, the more fluent and accurate you will become.
Your 5 games will take place in the Garage but once you reach Level 420, you'll open up the Studio!
Who will be the TT Rock-stars champions (most improved, biggest earner, fasted speed and star of the week) in your Maths group...?
Our aim is to read at least three times per week. Any reading should be recorded in your Reading Record. Super Readers read a range of genres including fiction and non-fiction. You could read chapter books, magazines, comics, fact books or even information about a certain topic online.
Just remember, if you've read it: record it!
Our PE session takes place on a Monday and Thursday for ALL classes this term.
You must come to school in your PE kit on your PE day.
Please make sure your PE kit includes: a plain top (plain white, purple or black),  shorts (warmer weather) or joggers (colder weather) and a change of suitable footwear (daps or trainers). If a jumper is worn, it must be a school jumper (no hoodies please). 
Please make sure all items of clothing are named. 
Home Learning
We understand that everybody's circumstances are different and that there will be days when you cannot complete tasks available. Please have a go at the tasks and activities which suit your home learning; there are great ideas at
We would encourage families to discuss how they will manage learning at home by:
1) Creating a schedule together about what home learning will be like.
2) Looking at available resources; use the website and blog to prioritise some tasks for each day.
3) Planning time to sit down and share learning; what has been achieved, what was challenging and what could be continued tomorrow.
4) Having fun! Include lots of creative and physical activities and ensure that there is time to play.
5) Plan a reward system.
