Welcome Back, Orange Class!
A mini-project based on the book 'All Are Welcome' by Alexandra Penfold. We will learn about our new classroom, new teachers and new routines!
This project is all about how amazing you are! How does your body work? What do you look like? How do you feel? We will think about our amazing families, too!
This term we will be investigating the geography of our local area. What physical and human features will we see? We will look at maps, and go out and about to do some fieldwork!
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!
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? What animals would you see on your adventure?
Plants and Paws!
This term we will learn about our local environment. What plants and animals will we find? What geographical features are there? Further afield, we will compare our local area with other locations in Great Britain.
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? How does the weather affect the minibeasts and our environment.
I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!
Here we will find out about holidays by the sea in the past and present. What did people do at the seaside 50 years ago? How do we enjoy the seaside today? What do we need to stay safe and healthy at the beach? We will make seaside paintings inspired by the great painter JW Turner.
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!
