Carbeile Junior School

Year 5


Welcome to Year 5

Please find below a range of home learning links to support your child’s learning in school. Our expectation is that you listen to your child read three times a week and record their reading in the reading record. Please make sure reading records are brought into school on Friday so the class teacher can reward and monitor home reading.  Every child also has a Bug Club login, where they can access a range of fantastic texts. Weekly Times Table Rock Star battles or tasks are set, so they can practice quick recall anywhere! Your child will be provided with weekly spellings and there are also some spelling resources and ideas below. Our current topic is ‘Space’. We have set some fun tasks you can complete with your child to deepen their understanding and curiosity of the topic.
