Later in the term we will look at some different times of celebration, what different people do to celebrate and how to make some healthy party food! 
Icy Adventures
In this exciting project we will be learning all about intrepid explorers to the icy polar regions. What preparations might they make? What would you take with you for a trip to the coldest places in the world? How did explorers survive in the past? How has exploration changed?

Plants, Paws and Whiskers!
This term we will start with finding out about the history of toys since the 1960s. What is different and what has stayed the same?
Next, we'll find out about some wild and wonderful animals! How could we sort and group them?
Finally, we will learn about the plants in our local environment. We will 'get to know a tree' - will it be deciduous or coniferous? How can you tell?
We will be making some clay sculptures of plants we find.
What a busy term!

Garden Safari
This term we will find out what's right under our noses! We will learn about the tiny creatures that live in our environment. What are they? Where do they live? What do they like and need?
In Geography, we will find out about how the weather affects our environment and our lives. We will become metereologists, measuring and collecting weather data.
We will be inspired by the weather in Art as well - creating weather paintings.

 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!
