Welcome to Mercury Class!
Mercury class is a mixed class of Nursery and Reception children.
Our teacher is Miss Skrzypczak. Mrs Arachchige and Mrs Nash are our teaching assistants.
We are lucky to have our own outdoor learning area and enjoy playing outside come rain or shine! The ethos of our class is to develop happy, confident and independent learners who are willing to try their best and find success in their everyday learning. Every child is unique and we aim to tailor lessons to the individual needs of the children.
On this page you can find updates about our learning and any special adventures we have been on. We hope you enjoy reading about our learning journey!
Mercury Class Updates 2023.2024
Week Commencing 4/9/23:
This week the children have been exploring their new classroom both inside and outside
During creative week we have been reading In our Hands by Lucy Farfort. We were linking this story to ideas about what is ‘community’, the children then created some people in the community for our class display. We have also been really interested in the illustration especially the grey colours and the children were linking the colours to their emotions.
Alongside all of this learning the children have been very busy in the continuous provision.
We are so proud of how settled in the children have become and are already a part of the school family!
Week Commencing 11.09.23
This week we have been talking about ourselves and our families. We discussed how people are all different, and that we need to respect and be kind to one another.
We also saw the phonics fairy arrive in class and she brought four phonic sounds for the children to learn. S A T and P. The phonics fairy said that all the children learnt the sounds very well😊
The children visited the school library and were excited to be able to take a book home for reading.
They also started learning letter formation for the phonic sounds we have started learning.
This week has been a positive week and I am extremely proud of their progress😊

What a fantastic week!🤓This week we have been learning about different feelings and we read a story written by Anna Llenas “The Colour Monster”. The children enjoyed making faces out of paper plates and some puppets representing various emotions in our creative area🥰
In phonics we have learnt the new sounds I,N,M and D and some tricky words. We have been practising our letter formation on the whiteboards and in our writing books. I am so proud of everyone in Mercury class🥰
The children have been busy in the continuous provision playing inside and outside the classroom. They enjoyed fine motor skills activities and our balance bikes 🥰🤓
