Gloucester Road Primary School

Year 5 Homework

The children are given two pieces of homework every week. They will have a GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) homework which will be handed out every Monday and need to be in by Thursday morning. Also, the children will receive a piece of maths homework. This will be given every Thursday and needs to be in by the following Monday. Maths homework is related to the children’s targets and will help them in their times tables tests each week.  

Reading Journals

After reading each book (or once a week if your child has shorter books), the children need to complete an activity in their reading journal. They need to choose a different activity each week. This enables the children to show they have understood the books they read at home.

Reading in Year 5

Your child needs to complete some independent reading every day and they need to write a comment in their log. Please listen to them read 3 times a week and sign their reading record too.
