Reading Expectations

Home Readers

In Y5, children are expected to read four time a week for at least 30 minutes. They are encouraged to read a range of reading material including their favourite book, current reading books from home as well as library books from school, colour banded books from the school's reading scheme, comics and newspapers.

Their reading record must be signed by an adult four times a week. For every 10 signatures, a raffle ticket will be issued for a chance to win our Wonderful Reading Hampers.

Reading records are checked every Monday.

Children will also be able to supplement their reading through TOP TEN READS and the WONDROUS BOOK CLUB!

Times Tables

By the end of year five the expectation is that all children will be confident with their times tables up to 12 x 12 including division facts. We will practise these at least three times a week during school. The children will need to use Times Tables Rock Stars at home for a least 10 minutes a day to practise these tables. All children have been provided with a login previously, but if you have lost it please don't hesitate to ask for a new one.
