Welcome to Mercury Class


Welcome to Mercury Class and Wincanton Primary School


Your teachers are Mrs Berridge (Monday and Tuesday) Mrs Coleridge (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) Miss Bolton and Mrs Hunt help in our class too. 


Our Learning Experience this term will be Rhyme Time! 


Week 1: Week beginning: Monday 30th October

This week we will be singing lots of nursery rhymes together. We will be considering which songs the children know so that we are able to teach them new rhymes to enable them to build a repertoire of songs to sing from memory. We will also have a focus on Firework night and safety. We will be taking the children on a wellie walk to the park and the children will begin collecting natural objects to construct their sculptures and pictures on Friday 3rd November. Please remember your wellies on this Friday.


Week 2: Week beginning: Monday 6th November

We shall engage the children with a ‘Who done it?’ style investigation into Humpty Dumpty’s tragic end. Our numeracy will focus on the rhyme 10 green bottles, as our learning will be finding 1 less.

On Wednesday 8th November children will be able to come to school dressed up as a Nursery Rhyme character.



Week 3: Week beginning Monday 13th November

Incy Wincy Spider is our focus rhyme in literacy this week. The children will continue to identify initial and final sounds and develop their blending skills. Whilst identifying spelling patterns using rhyming strings.

During Numeracy this week we will be thinking about Hickory Dickory Dock and discussing the times of the day.

The children will investigate a simple pulley system to lower Incy Wincy down the drain.



Week 4: Week beginning: Monday 21st November 24TH

We shall conclude our rhyme time experience this week with the children’s chosen nursery rhyme, Baa Baa Black sheep. We shall experiment with rhyming strings and will be making our own fun versions. In numeracy we shall be introducing money as we learn the rhyme Five Current Buns in a Bakers Shop.


On Friday 24th November you are invited to our Rhyme Time outcome to watch the children perform a selection of nursery rhymes they have learnt throughout this learning experience. Pluto class will share their work between 9.15 and 9.30, with Mercury following at 9.35. Both performances will be in the hall.
