Homework

Homework is for all children and consolidates the learning that children have covered in class each week. 

Weekly homework will consist of:

  • Spellings 
  • Maths task
  • Quiz of the Week

Children can practise their spellings, complete the Maths task and answer the quiz questions in the homework book. The answers will be posted the following week so that parents and children can self-assess their answers at home. Please remember not to return the homework books to school.

 Homework books will be sent out and should not return to school. 

If you have any questions for the Year 5 team, please feel free to email us at year5@grafton.bardaglea.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
