Welcome to Mersey Class!

General Information

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.

 

Reading Books

(As we are not sending reading books home at the moment due to COVID then some links and ideas to promote reading at 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.

P.E.

P.E. lessons will take place once a week. To reduce the amount of items transferring between home and school the pupils will complete P.E. in their uniform.

 

At the moment, we are unable to travel out of school to The Meadows Pool in Maghull for swimming lessons.

 

During our P.E. sessions we discuss the importance of keeping fit and the affect it has on our bodies. We look at ways we can keep healthy through a balanced diet and regular exercise.

 

Cookery

We do cookery once a week. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.

Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves.

 

Home Learning

If your child is off school due to isolation or sickness, there will be home learning activities update to the class page relating to the topic that the class will be learning about that week. If you would like any individual activities that are designed directly for your child's abilities and interests then please contact me.

Inventions

We have been exploring the inventions made over time and the huge milestones these have been.  Now it is our challenge to think of an invention, design it and draw your plan.

 

Some websites for you to explore other kids inventions:
