Year 5 Homework- Due Thursday 7th March

Date set: Friday 1st March 2019

Date due: Thursday 7th March 2019



For your homework this week we would like you to complete the ‘ie’/ ‘ei’ wordsearch given to you by your teacher. Pay attention to the exception words for the rule ‘i before e except after c’.



Please use your handwriting homework book to practise your spellings. Put the short date at the top of the page and then write each of the sentences below in your neatest joined handwriting. When you have finished underline each of your spelling words and double check your work is punctuated and spelt correctly.


Your Spelling Rule

It can be hard to know whether to use ‘ei’ or ‘ie’. Your spellings this week will have these letter combinations in them.


Your Spelling Words in sentences


  • There was a brief pause in discussion when the children needed to be patient.
  • My friend and I went to play at the neighbour’s house.
  • The height of the building was measured in metres.


Please learn your spellings ready for a test on Thursday 7th March.


Times tables- TT Rockstars

In school next week you will be practising your 11, 12 and 2 times tables. The main focus is on increasing your mental recall speed for these times tables facts. You can practise at home by logging on to TT Rockstars and earning coins for each times table fact you answer correctly.



You should ensure you are reading to an adult at home at least 3 times a week and record this in your home school diary. Remember 20 reads = one housepoint!


Home school diaries

Please make sure home school diaries are signed each week. Home school diaries should be in school each day as they are often used to share informal messages and test results will be recorded in them each week.
