Christmas homework

Hello Year 5,

The first term of Year 5 is complete, well done everyone! We hope you have a fantastic break and enjoy spending time with your loved ones, and stay safe and healthy.

We have set below some optional festive-themed homework for the two weeks off. Complete as much as you would like, but 2 pages per subject is fine. Continue to read, practise spellings and practise your times tables also.

We look forward to seeing what you get up to over the two week break on Seesaw and can’t wait to welcoming you back to school in 2021!


Next term we will not only have PE on Monday but also on Wednesday. Please wear your PE kit on both days.
