Welcome to Brookfield Park Primary School‘Nurture, include and inspire to succeed’


Welcome to our homework page. Here I will set out our expectations for our weekly homework, including timings, what is set weekly and also suggestions for extra activities that you child could take part in to continue their home learning.


Year 5 homework includes:

  • Spellings
  • Times tables
  • Reading


Homework is set on Mondays.

Homework is due in on the Friday of the same week.


Spellings homework - your child will bring home a list of spellings that they need to learn. They will need to complete the daily spelling practice grid and write each of their words into a full sentence, making sure that their sentences make full sense and are punctuated correctly. A spelling test will take place every Friday. If you would like to see which spellings your child will be set this term, take a look at the half termly overviews which set out the spelling strategies and spelling lists for each week below. Please ensure that all written homework is completed using either pencil or a blue or black ink pen. 


Maths Homework - your child will be required to complete their daily 10 minute challenge on TT Rockstars by logging in using their own log in details. Regular tables test will take place throughout the year that will test how your child's accuracy of recall and pace of recall are improving. After Christmas many children will also be working on improving their rapid recall of their division facts. They will also be given a Maths sheet (which they will have already gone through in class) containing six questions for them to complete.


Reading Homework - your child is required to read regularly. Reading is an important life skill plus reading for pleasure helps us to relax and escape to other worlds and interests. Reading also helps to improve spelling, grammar, sentence construction and imaginative ideas for own writing. Your child will bring home a reading book appropriate for their current reading level, which they are to read regularly. They will also bring home a more challenging book that they will read for pleasure and hopefully share with someone at home. These books will be changed regularly - either when completed or if your child has given it a try and are just not enjoying it. They will be required to complete a book review when changing a completed book and prizes and certificates will be awarded at appropriate times. We really want to instil a true love of reading in our children and your support in this will be greatly appreciated.
