Yr 5 Term 2 2018 Homework

We are excited to introduce Mathletics and Spellodrome this year as part of our children’s homework.


Spellodrome opens up a whole new online world for children to improve their spelling and literacy skills. They will find an exciting variety of activities and challenges to explore, with a little competition along the way in Live Spellodrome.


The cornerstone of Mathletics’ success is its ability to engage students. Games and apps in the Play area target maths fluency.  Mathletics empowers learners to feel confident and motivated to think critically, make learning choices, seek help when they need it and reflect on their learning by being able to visually track their progress.


Each Monday your child will be set some fun activities to complete on line, linked to their learning in school. We encourage children to complete the activities that week.


Children can earn points whilst completing their homework.  When your child gets 1000 or more points in a week they will earn a Bronze Certificate.  When they have achieved five Bronze Certificates, they will be awarded a Silver Certificate.  If they then get a further four Silver certificates they can earn a Gold Certificate.

Children’s achievements will be celebrated and certificates handed out in our House Assembly.


To access Mathletics you can either download the free app, or go to uk.mathletics.com.


To access Spellodrome, go to uk.spellodrome.com


You will need to use your child’s username and password (the same for both websites) to log in.


Spellodrome is currently being updated so that all the games will work on an iPad.  At present some use Flash, which only PC’s use, but this will not stop your child being able to work on their spellings.


If you experience any problems, please contact your class teacher for advice.
