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 A journey through Europe. In this topic we will be looking at some of the countries in Europe. We will be tasting different foods, looking at features and comparing it to where we live.

In English we have started a great new text called ‘The Storm Whale’. We’ll be writing our own version of this story, changing different parts of the story to make it our own. Our story map is in the children’s homework books.

We will be practising lots of number skills this half term looking at adding and taking away on a numberline. We will also be practicing counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Please also practice telling the time to the o’clock as we will also be starting to do this.

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 Thursday. We currently have Middlesex Cricket coming in to teach us cricket on a Thursday morning which we are really enjoying.

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.

Thank-you for your ongoing support!

Miss Daniels​
