Year 5 B - Mr Houghton 2019 - 2020

Mr Houghton

Welcome to 5B (Mr Houghton)

We have got a fun packed term this term. Our big topic is The Mayans and we will be learning about what their lives were like. We will also be doing lots of artwork based on this topic. In Science, we will be learning about Space. See the blog for more information as the term goes on. Our Harvest performance will also be in this term (17th October). Literacy, children will be developing their handwriting and spelling through lots of writing based on a wide variety of genres, using the literacy tree resources, and in Numeracy, we will continue learning through our Maths Mastery approach with a focus on place value to start along with times tables.

PE will take place indoor on a Monday and outdoor on a Wednesday.

Spellings will go out on a Monday and will be tested on Friday.

Homework will go out on Friday and will be due in on a Wednesday.

I look forward to an exciting year with the wonderful children of Year 5.


As you should be aware, your child recently recieved a journal from school. Each week has its own specific pages. I would appreciate it if you could read with your child each night for 20 minutes. This will really help to support their understanding. Please could you also make sure that your child is filling in the daily reading boxes and that you sign it weekly. I will be checking these on a Monday to make sure this is being completed and also signing them myself.
