Homework in P5

Welcome to Primary 5!

Homework will be given out on a Monday and is to be returned on a Thursday. Children who have not completed their homework by Thursday will attend a reflection time on the Friday. Children are expected to spend roughly an hour a week on their homework.

Homework will consist of spelling, reading and maths work. There may also be topic work to support what is being covered in class.

The homework for the week commencing 20th August 2018 is detailed below:


Maths homework will usually be set on Education City. All children have been given their logins and as part of their homework for this week children have been asked to make sure that they are able to access the site.

Children have also been given a worksheet sheet on place value to complete. This will support what we have been learning in class.


Children are to read a book of their choice and record this in the grid at the front of their reading journals. They should list the name of the book, the pages that they have read and a comment about what they have read so far. This could be a section that they particularly enjoyed or a character that they like.

Children should also complete the first task in their reading journal, creating an advert for their current reading book.




Children have been given the above list of spelling words. Children should complete one of the spelling activities from their spelling grids which should also be in their homework jotter. Children should tick off spelling activities that they have completed.
