Welcome to

St. Michael & St. Martin

Catholic Primary School

Learning our faith, living our faith, loving our faith



We are encouraging children to take an active role in their own learning as they will soon be in Year 6 and the demands will increase. We expect the children to take responsibility for their own learning and to organise their workload accordingly. Children are expected to complete their homework to a high standard and hand it in on the due day. Every week the children will receive:


  • RE
  • Spellings
  • English: Writing & Grammar 
  • Maths topic & Arithmetic
  • Reading comprehension


The day the homework is sent home/due will be dependent on our topics and will complement what we are learning in school.


Daily practice of times tables (up to 12x12), number bonds to 100, and multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1000 is paramount for children’s progression in maths. 


Children should be reading for a minimum of 20 minutes each evening, ensuring that they are making three meaningful entries in their reading records each week. Using the prompts provided, children should be aiming to vary and up-level their evaluations of the texts they are reading, across a range of genres. Year 5 have shown wonderful commitment to reaching their Accelerated Reader targets, which are reset each half-term. It is our expectation that the children’s dedication to quizzing continues during the Summer term. 


Thank you for your continued support!
