Pluto – Year 6

Welcome to Pluto Class!

My name is Miss Daniels and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, the children have Mrs Costa supporting us with our work too. This year is an exciting year for us.

This term we will be focusing on two topics: out of this world and Rule Britannia. Out of this world will be focusing on space and space travel. Rule Britannia will be focusing on the Vikings.

In Whole class reading we are going to read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone. We have used this text to support our English and write our own adventure story. Next half term, we will be completing a discussion text and writing our own using this format.

In maths, we will be practicing a range of skills including number, shape and fractions. These will be in your child’s homework book each week for you to continue practicing with your child.

We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon; children will need full PE kit for this. We also have tennis on a Monday afternoon; children are welcome to change into their trainers for this.

Children must read and sign their own reading record each day. If they do not have their reading record sign twice a week, they will be expected to stay in during their lunchtime on Friday to read.

Homework is due in on a Wednesday, it will be marked and returned to you on Thursday with the next week’s homework. A spelling test will be done on Thursday for that week’s spellings.

Please ensure your child has a school water bottle which can be purchased at the office for £1. Children are welcome to bring in fruit which they can have at break time.

Thank-you for your ongoing support!
