5S Miss Stones

Welcome to Class 5S  


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 topic is...

 Natural Disasters

                                   

 

This term our theme is ‘Natural Disasters.' We will be learning about different types of natural disasters, studying the causes, signs and effects of them. 

Why do people choose to live in earthquake zones and on the slopes of volcanoes? 

Are there any warnings before natural disasters happen?

How do people recover from the effects of natural disasters?

 

Furthermore we will be studying the features of rivers and we will be carrying out a river study in Malham.  We will also be looking at the effects of flooding, focusing on the effect flooding has had in York. 

 

 

 

 

Topic Homework
This term we will be asking you to complete three tasks of your choosing before half term and another three before the summer holidays. We've got many fun and exciting 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 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.  This term we will be learning all about pilgrimages.

      
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).

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, then get it written in your planner with an adult's signature and you will be awarded a 'High 5.'  Come on 5S, let's go for it!
 
In addition to this, read books from a range of genres to go towards the 'Reading Challenge.'  For year 5, the challenge is to read 40 books this year!


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.  Below, I have included a link to 'Hit the button,' which is a times tables game that we play in class and the children love 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.
