Primary 5 Homework for Thursday, 13th of January

Dear Primary 5 families,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful and restful break.

This week the spelling pattern for both groups is: oi/oy. There are 4 spelling tasks on the page, please choose one to complete in the homework jotter.

Ivory Group: There are 10 spelling words to practise, however if your child already knows several, they can choose to practise the three challenge words in place of 3 they already know.

Blue Group: There are 10 spelling words to practise and 3 Common Words. These will change each week.

Numeracy: We have been working out the area and perimeter of regular shapes. If you are struggling with this, please just ask me. 


Area = the space covered = length x breadth

Perimeter = the distance around the edge = Add all sides together

Area of a triangle = ½ the base x height

Mental Maths: We are finishing our last part of Number Recognition-this week we are all practising recognising money coins and notes. Taking opportunities to use money in small transactions or handling coins and notes at home would be really helpful to reinforce this. 

 If anything is not clear or there are any concerns, please do let me know.

I hope you all have a lovely week.

Kind regards,

Mrs Harrison
