Shipgate Homework.

Shipgate Homework: Friday, November 9th

Date set: Friday 9th November 2018.

Date Returned: Thursday 15th November 2018

If your child does not understand anything then we ask that you encourage them to bring their homework to morning challenge where we can help them with the concepts.

This week, the children’s homework is supporting their:

  • Understanding of the short ‘i’ and ‘u’ sounds.
  • Mental arithemtic skills.


Spelling: Pages 22 & 23.

Reading: Please encourage your child to read daily and record this in their reading diary. Once they have finished a book they must complete a book review, where they reflect on their reading. There are spare book review sheets in Shipgate, as there is not enough in the reading diaries.

You should write one comment in your child’s reading diary once a week. We kindly ask you to initial in their planner to confirm your child has either read with you or independently, every night of the week.

Spellings: To be revised, ready for testing on Friday 16th November 2018.

Mathematics: Mental arithmetic: Next available page. If your child has run out of pages then they are to ask Miss Lester for the new book, which we have in school.

Times Tables/Division Challenge: Complete the ultimate times table and division challenge. The children should set a 10-minute timer for each one, and answer as many of the questions as possible. We have talked to them about answering all the ones they know first, then going back to the trickier ones with their spare time.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Year 5 Team.
