Teaching Staff

Our fantastic Year 5 class teacher is Mrs Taylor who is supported by the wonderful Mrs Hamilton!

Homework KS2 Expectations and Help

Weekly Maths / Literacy homework is posted on Google Classroom every Thursday. This homework is expected to be completed by the following Monday.  All children have login details (however, if you are unable to access Google Classroom, a paper copy will be sent home) – for help with Google Classroom, please click here.

Reading: Children are expected to read to an adult every day with a minimum expectation of at least 4 times a week.  Parents/carers are requested to sign home reading records to confirm reading, and to use the reading prompts on the bookmark and in the middle of the reading logs to develop understanding. We ask children to bring their reading book and reading log in to school every day.

Spelling: Each week, we learn new spelling rules in school. The children are given a list of these words to learn at home each Thursday for a test the following Thursday. (These can also be found on Google Classroom).

Timetables: Children are expected to practise their times tables every day. The children have a TTRS session every Thursday in school. Each child has been provided with a unique login to Times Tables Rockstars

Homework Grids

Homework grids are created for every curriculum topic. These include a wide range of homework tasks linked to the topic. It is expected that pupils will complete a selection of these, each week, as the topic progresses.
