Mercury -Year 1

Welcome to Mercury class!

My name is Miss Daniels and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, the children have Ms Marfo, Miss Coad and Mrs Grazioli supporting us with our work too.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is Toys. At the beginning of October we will have an exciting trip for this topic to Hamley’s where children will learn lots about how toys have changed over time. We’re all very excited!

In English we have started a great new text called ‘The Enormous Turnip’. We’ll be writing our own version of this story, changing different parts of the story to make it our own.

We will be practising lots of number skills this half term looking at place value and addition and subtraction to deepen children’s knowledge and understanding.

We have fruit time before break time every day. Please ensure children have a water bottle. If they do not, these can be purchased at the office for £1.

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE twice a week. Children must have their PE kit for both days – Wednesday and Friday.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday with the next week’s homework.

Please collect your child from the classroom at the end of the day.

 We are all really looking forward to this year!

Miss Daniels
