Year 5 B - Mr Houghton 2021 - 2022
Welcome the Mr Houghton's class page.
Below is some important information for both children and parents.
Monday - Indoor PE
Thursday - Outdoor PE
We will continue to run PE and Games lessons, and these will be outside when we are able to do so. In the past, PE kits were kept in school but this will change.
On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers/pumps to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.
Mirodo - a vast majority of the homework this year will be online based via Mirodo. You can access Mirodo by clicking here; your child's username and password is in their planner. Homework will be set on a Friday and is expected to be completed by Wednesday.
Times Tables - Every child has been given a username and password to access Times Tables Rock Stars. This is a brilliant resource to help practise times tables facts and the children can track their own progress as well as teachers. The login details can be found at the front of your child's planner.
Spellings - New spellings will be given out every Monday and the children will be tested on those spellings every Friday. Each child has been given a username and password to access Spelling Shed. This is a great resource to help practise spelling rules. The login details can be found at the front of your child's planner.
