Year 5 Home Learning

Home Learning (also known as ‘homework’) can play a key role in expanding children’s understanding beyond the classroom.

They can provide opportunities for independent exploration of thoughts and ideas, as well test self-discipline, organisation and meeting deadlines.

At the moment, Year 5 have been tasked with a project to construct a model of our Solar System, linked to our Science and IPC topics. They had to be scientifically accurate (as much as possible anyway), yet also show some creativity in how the children ultimately present their interpretations.

We always encourage some parental involvement in home learning but also ask for the children to be at the heart of the ideas and thinking. Sometimes, just being a ‘sound board’ for their ideas or asking some carefully worded questions can help your child think more deeply about their learning, without any direct involvement.

If you have any questions about home learning, then please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance. We look forward to seeing all of the projects in by the Wednesday 18th September deadline.
