5M Miss Munday

Welcome to Class 5M

 

Welcome to our exciting  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 exciting topic is 
Natural Disasters!

 

We will be learning about a range of natural disasters, from vicious volcanoes to scary tsunamis! We will discover how volcanoes form and erupt, why some areas experience more earthquakes than others and also explore the science behind plate tectonics.

 

Rivers and flooding will also come into our studies, investigating how rivers begin, flow and end. We will look at flooding (well, we do live in York after all!) and how flood management is attempted. A trip to beautiful Malham will support our work in this area!

 

We will also be writing exciting fantasy stories, producing stunning volcano artwork and - in between all of this excitement - goin on our residential to Whitby! What a term!

 


 

Topic Homework
This term we will be asking you to complete three tasks of your choosing before half term and another three before the Easter holidays. We've got lots of great activities for you to try. If you lose the homework grid, you can get a copy from the link below. 


PE and Games

Our timetabled PE and games days for this term (Summer 1) are a Tuesday and Friday.

 


It's a good idea to have both your indoor and outdoor kits in school all week as we might find time to do PE on other days too.

Outdoor PE Kit required
White polo T-Shirt
Dark tracksuit bottoms and jumper (no logos)
Trainers or football boots (if already owned)
Shin pads (if already owned)
No jewellery
Long hair tied up

Indoor PE Kit
White polo T-Shirt
Black shorts (no logos)
Black plimsolls
No jewellery
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.



R.E.
We will be studying a variety of faiths from different cultures and hope to have visitors to speak to the children.


      
Mathletics Homework

Each Monday, you will be given mathletics homework to be completed by the following Monday.  
 

   If you are unable to complete your Mathletics at home, you can come along to the Mathletics club (held on a Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime) in the ICT suite.  

You will find your log on information for 'Mathletics' in your planner.  If you lose it or can't remember it, please come and speak to me and I will help you out.



High 5
Read at home a minimum of five times per week and get it written in your planner with an adult's signature and you will be awarded a 'High 5.'  Come on 5M, let's go for it!


Times Tables 
It's important to get your knowledge of times tables really secure, with instant recall of the facts up to at least 12 x 12. This is because future maths skills build on this knowledge, and without it, you will struggle later on. It's a good idea to keep practising from time to time too, because if you don't use it you might lose it.
 
Each child has a focus times table to learn for a test on Friday. You might like to try some online games to sharpen your skills.
