During Home Learning, children will be sent one guided reading session and 5 written sessions. These are to be completed and sent to the Upper KS2 email address so that teachers can see the progress your child is making. 

Maths

A big focus within Year 5/6 this year continues to be using and applying our Maths knowledge.

Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in maths by the end of year 5 and 6:

Year 5 Maths      Year 6 Maths

Children should also practise their times tables using the TT Rockstars app. During home learning, children will be set 5 days of progressive learning. Each day will build upon the previous day with a video to explain each lesson.
