How much homework does your year 5 child get and how long does it take?
What sort of thing do they have to do?
Weekly we have about 1 hour of maths and 1-2 hours of literacy for children in the top set.

A set of 10 spellings, reading, mathletics, bug club, then literacy and numeracy homework on a Friday to be handed in Monday, which would be around 20 minutes each.

So spellings is literally writing each work 3 times so 30 words, reading is done before bed in bed, mathletics is 20 minutes twice a week(that time is set by me) and we sacked off bug club with the blessing of the school as he reads daily.

School is outstanding primary.
