Mercury Class

Mercury Class is one of our Year 3/4 classes, led by Miss Gethings. 

Remember: Homework is given out on Wednesdays and is due in the following Monday. We encourage children to read as regularly as possible, and expect their school reading book to be read at least 3 times a week and recorded in their planner. PE days are Tuesday and Friday and children should come into school wearing their PE kits on these days.

We had a fantastic day on our trip to Conkers. We reinforced our learning on seed dispersal, went on a barefoot walk through water, stones and mud and we really enjoyed the inside play area and interactive games.

Design & Technology - Cooking

This term in D&T we have learnt how to make vegetable soup. We discussed that soup fits well with our Eco-Warriors topic because it is a good meal to use up ingredients and helps avoid food wastage. We learnt about 'food miles' and that the ingredients used for soup can be grown locally which is better for us and the environment. This also links with our Science where we  are learning about the 5 main food groups and what a balanced diet is. 
We used skills such as measuring, peeling and chopping and used different grips and holds when using the knife to ensure we use it safely. The soup was SO tasty and most of us wanted to take the recipe home to try it at home!


Communication & Collaboration

In PSHE this term, we are learning about the importance of communication and collaboration. We particularly enjoyed this lesson where we had to communicate and work well as a team to pick up the coloured cups and place them in the correct circle on the paper using a piece of string each attached to an elastic band. We were then challenged to stack them inside each other and then make a tower. We had a lot of fun and it felt great when we completed it together! 

Greenkid Comics

Dr Mcelroy came into school and led an assembly for the whole school this week. He left us with some comics to enjoy called Greenkid. We loved reading them together, take a look at some pictures of Mercury enjoying them. 

Eco Warriors

This term in art we have been focusing on the skill of shading, using different pencil pressures to create different tones and shades.
We also drew the other half of the Sycamore Gap Tree, which was really tricky!
