Mercury

 

What a great start to the year we have had! All of the children in Mercury Class have settled in well. They know the rules and routines and seem to be having a great time with their friends, new and old.

 

Every day we teach the children a new letter sound and we have started blending letters together to read words and sounding words out to spell them. They are also enjoying sharing their reading books with myself and Mrs Morton and practising early reading skills. The children in Mercury Class have been practising writing their name as well as forming the letters that we have been learning. Mercury children are also enjoying doing lots of counting forwards and backwards, learning to recognise numbers and match them to quantities and singing number rhymes. We have also been looking at different shapes and their properties and where they can be seen in the environment.

 

Everyday there are opportunities for the children to be creative with paints, collage, playdough and box modelling and the children love to make a mess while they are learning new skills, both inside and outside! The children love to spend time outside exploring the environment, role playing and being active whilst they learn.

 

Every day we walk around the playground for 15 minutes as part of The Daily Mile Initiative that over 3000 schools are taking part in. This is a great way to support classroom learning and improve children’s confidence, concentration and behaviour. At the same time it helps them to stay fit and healthy.

 

We look forward to getting to know the children and yourselves better throughout the year and to watch them progress in their first year at school.

 

Please come and see us if you have any concerns about your child, to share achievements, for advice or if you just need a chat.

 

Mrs Aston and Mrs Morton
