Year 3 Mercury
Welcome to Mercury Class!
I am Mrs Mather, the teacher here, with our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Barnes and Mrs Passmore. As a teacher, I enjoy doing all kinds of creative activities including art and writing, as well as learning new languages. We are dedicated to the education and well-being of each individual child, as well as to their progress in key subjects such as Reading, Writing and Maths. Mrs Barnes and Mrs Passmore are smiling and ready every day to guide us all in our learning. They are friendly faces for the children, when they need someone to listen to them in a busy classroom, one to one.
I am so excited that we have extensive and amazingly varied outdoor areas for learning at Hillcrest and we design lots of activities to make the most of this very enviable asset.
In Year 3 we consolidate and build on our Key Stage 1 skills and knowledge in Reading, Writing and Maths. We investigate new areas of learning and share our discoveries with each other and hopefully with parents too!
We hope our new Year 3 class are as excited as we are about the inspirational TLC books that have been chosen as the basis of our learning during this school year!
Life for children in prehistoric times and during the Victorian era will be part of our study of History. In Science, we include research into how animal and human skeletons are similar and different, as well as the life cycle of plants and the uses of magnetism and friction in everyday life.
Our aim is to become confident and independent learners, so that we can have fun and take on new challenges, both in and out of school
