Top Tips and useful links:
Fluency in times tables is vital in improving a lot of other vital maths skills. I would like the children to continue to practice their times tables knowledge using Times Tables Rock Stars. The more the children play on here, the easier they will find all other areas of maths in year 5 and onwards.
Each week, we have a new spelling rule that we learn in class and then this is tested on Spelling Shed every Thursday. In order to help with spellings, I would always encourage the children to practice little and often on Spelling Shed. There is a strong correlation between being a good speller and a fantastic writer. With many aspiring authors in year 5, I encourage you to continue to practice.
Try to read as much as possible at home. This can be reading to a family member or being read to before bed. Increasing the amount of time spent reading, talking about and exploring illustrations in books will increase vocabulary and ensure children are able to access the rest of the curriculum.
