Denfield Park Primary School

Learning and Growing Together


In Year 5, we expect you to complete all of the tasks given to you.  We understand that you have busy social lives and family commitments, but homework is a vital part of your education as it reinforces topics covered in school and allows you to demonstrate independent understanding. 

Both maths and English homework will be due on a Friday. The children are required to complete this weekly. It is designed to consolidate and enhance their current learning. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Sparkes or Miss Jappy.


As part of the children's homework each week, they will be expected to read a minimum of 3 times at home. This needs to be documented in their reading record with a signature.


The children will have weekly spellings. Their spelling test will be on a Monday each week. They will have time to practise within school hours, however they will be expected to practise at home too.
