 Year 1 2021/2022

Welcome to Year 1

In Year 1 at St Mary's, children continue to learn through play and investigation, while beginning to focus on the subject areas of the National Curriculum. Children will continue to work on phonics to develop their reading and writing skills, and will use many practical resources to develop their understanding of mathematical concepts. Across the curriculum, children develop both skills and knowledge through themed projects. Here are the projects planned for this year!
