Miss Houghton

Welcome Year 5


Wow, what an exciting Autumn term we have planned. I cannot wait to get to know you all and have a fantastic start to this year!

Let's take a look at what we will be learning about. 

BBC Radio 4 - Woman's Hour - Maths anxiety: How can parents help their  children?

Maths: In maths, we will be learning about number and place value within one million, addition and subtraction, graphs and tables, multiplication and division as well as area and perimeter. Make sure you keep brushing up on your multiplication and division facts!

251 idioms to enhance your English - 1taskaday


English: In English, we will be learning about relative and subordinate clauses, the past perfect tense, fronted adverbials of time, modal verbs. parenthesis and direct speech (they may sound scary - but I promise they aren't).We will be applying our skills on work based around a variety of texts linked to our learning adventure. We will also be brushing up on the grammar that you all learnt last year.

To link this delicious learning adventure with English, we will be delving into the amazing story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

To Infinity and Beyond: (Yes, I wish i was Buzz Lightyear) We are going to learn about the mysteries of the universe in our exciting science topic of Earth and Space. We will be recreating abstract rocket and planet paintings inspired by the artist Peter Thorpe as well as going on our very own space exploration in a Lego craft of our design in design and technology. To support our adventure, we will be focusing on the book Wonder in English.


Beyond the Pacific: We will be studying the similarities of an area of North America with a region of the United Kingdom in our geography learning adventure. We will study the human and physical geography of each region. Our book, The Chocolate Tree, is a story from North America and is a fantastic adventure to ignite ideas in our English lessons.
