Mercury -Year 1
Welcome to Mercury Class!
My name is Miss Haylett, and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, we have Miss Goodey supporting us with our work too. This year is an exciting and busy year for us.
In Topic, we are looking at a variety of History, Geography, Art and D&T topics. We are currently studying, “The Seaside”.
In Science we are learning about the different seasons, observing the changes. Finally, we will be moving onto the human body and the different senses we have.
In English, we are focusing on explicitly teaching text types like description, recount and information reports.
For Maths, we will be practicing a range of skills including number, shape, addition and subtraction. We will also practice these skills for homework which will go home with the children each week in their homework books on a Thursday and are due back in on the following Wednesday at the latest (please feel free to send them in if they are ready before hand). We will also be practising counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.
Please ensure your child comes to school in their full PE kit on a Monday and Thursday. Our PE day with the Arsenal Football coaches is on Thursdays and PE with Miss Haylett is on Mondays.
Children must read each night and their reading record should be signed by an adult each day. If they do not have their reading record signed twice a week, they will be expected to stay in during their lunchtime to read.
Please ensure your child has a school water bottle which can be purchased at the office for £1. Children will receive a piece of fruit each day for break time.
Thank-you for your continued support.
