We ask parents and carers to return the home / school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child’s day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me.
Individual Education Plan(IEP’s)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child’s learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.
Some pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together.
P .E. sessions take place each Thursday and Friday. Our topics this term are judo and yogacise. Please ensure a full P.E. kit is brought to school and that items are clearly labelled to avoid confusion.
We do cookery every Thursday. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies. This half term we are learning to prepare and cook healthy snacks and vegetables using fresh fruit and vegetables.
All pupils in class take part in an enterprise activity each half term. Enterprise supports children adn young people to use their numeracy and literacy skills in a different context. This half term, KS3 are making and selling jacket potatoes. We have learnt the importance of good hygiene when preparing food. We have also discussed how to ensure our potatoes are good value for money and are involved in taking and preparing orders.
World Book Day
Today Mersey had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day. We all dressed up as some of our favourite book characters and after learning about the story of Alice in Wonderland, we had a Mad Hatters Tea Party. We decorated our own cakes and poured out hot chocolates.
