5M Miss Munday
Welcome to Class 5M
Welcome to our class page. Here you'll be able to find links to work that we do in school and photographs of all the fun we've been having.
This term our topic is...
Trouble at the Tower!
This term our theme is ‘Trouble at the Tower.' We will be studying the history of York focusing on Clifford's Tower. As port of our skilled based curriculum, we will be considering the following questions:
Who built Clifford's Tower and why?
Why was Clifford's Tower built at this location?
How has Clifford's Tower changed over time?
Would a catapult be an effective weapon to take over Clifford's Tower?
Can we use music to create an atmosphere?
How has York changed since Clifford's Tower was built?
Furthermore, in science we will be studying 'Properties and Changes of Materials.'
This term we will be asking you to continue with TT Rockstars, Maths homework and daily reading at home. In addition, you can choose to complete tasks from the optional home learning grid and share them with us in school!
PE and Games
Our timetabled PE and games days for this term (Spring 1) are a Tuesday (PE) and Friday (swimming).
As of this academic year, an indoor PE kit has been provided to all pupils by the school. You will be expected to wear this kit for indoor PE (and Games if it is warm enough) and to take it home to be washed during the holidays. It is your responsibility to provide shoes for PE lessons (such as plimsolls).
Later in the Autumn Term and early on in the Spring term, you may wish to additionally provide an outdoor Games kit as we will continue to do outdoor sports in the chillier weather. Details of an appropriate kit are outlined below.
Outdoor PE Kit required
Dark tracksuit bottoms and jumper (no logos)
Trainers or football boots (if already owned)
Shin pads (if already owned)
Long hair tied up
Indoor PE Kit
White polo T-Shirt (provided by school)
Black shorts (provided by school)
Long hair tied up
Please note, it is important that your child has separate indoor PE shoes to help us to look after our hall floor.
Racing to Read!
As part of our whole school commitment to reading, in 5M it is expected that everyone aims to read at least 5 times a week. Every time your reading is recorded in your planner and signed by an adult, your car on the display will race ahead one space. Everytime you hit a multiple of 10, you will get a dip in Miss M's Prize Box! When ALL class members have achieved a multiple of 10, you will all be rewarded with some extra bonus playtime!
Each week our class will have focus times tables to learn with the help of TTRockstars. It is expected that you will log on for a short period of time daily to improve your speed and recall. Don't forget that you will have the chance to become our Class Champion every week and to compete in Friday's assembly for a place on Winners' Row... let's keep 5M in with a great chance of winning a Pizza and Pop Party!
