Y5 Homework Project
Autumn Homework Project
Every term in Year 5, all the children will be expected to undertake a project as part of their homework tasks. The topic will usually be linked to the current topic the children are studying in class.
Ideally, the outcome from any project should show in quality of up to 3-4 hours work as a minimum. Your child should work on the project weekly as opposed to letting it build up and rushing it days before the hand in date. We encourage parental involvement; any support you can give your child is really invaluable. However it must be their work that they hand in.
