YEAR 5 HOMEWORK 

 

For our final homework this year, we would like you to reflect on all your successes and hard work in Year 5. The piece of work could take many forms, for example:

  • - A ‘How to survive Year 5’ guide for the current Year 4s
  • - A summary of what you have learnt and the challenges you have overcome
  • - A cartoon strip of your favourite moment(s)
  • - A piece of art inspired by our topics and learning

 

This should be completed in your Learning Logs or on paper to be presented.
