Y5 Homework

At Mayhill we see the purpose of home learning as the following:

  • Consolidating and reinforcing skills and understanding, particularly in English and Maths.
  • Exploiting resources for learning of all kinds at home and developing the learning environment from the school to home.
  • Encouraging pupils, as they get older to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own, and preparing them for the requirements of secondary school.

For more detailed information, see the Home Learning Policy on our 'Policies' page.

  • Fantastic French

    Published 07/12/22, by Victoria Argent

    In  French this term we have been learning how to give directions in French and the names of different places within a town, especially the most important ones like cafes and bakeries. We used all of this information to create our own maps around town. We used these maps to ask each other where certain buildings were and gave directions to these buildings with a partner. 


    To hear these directions, check out the latest Seesaw post!
