Homework in Year 5 and Year 6

Children should continue to read 5 times each week and record this in their Reading Record for parents to initial. Children will benefit from discussing their reading with an adult as often as possible.


We are using Times Table Rock Stars to ensure the children have rapid recall of times table facts. Children should spend 20 minutes completing TTRS activities. Passwords for OneNote and TTRS will be shared during parent teacher discussions this week.


Each week, there will also be one or two additional activities focusing on previous learning. This will be from the wider curriculum (including maths and English) and is aimed at reinforcing the essential knowledge taught through the curriculum. These tasks should take approximately 40 minutes.

Homework should take no more than 60 minutes each week (excluding reading).


A summary:

  • Read every day (at least 10 minutes a day).
  • Approximately 20 minutes of Times Table Rock Stars – a few short sessions would be more beneficial than one long one
  • One additional activity based on prior learning that should take no longer than 40 minutes.
  • Year 5 and Year 6 homework will be set on Friday and will due on the following Wednesday
