Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 has two teachers; Mrs Hodgkinson and Mrs Emery. We also have the fantastic Mrs Westlake working with us too!
We have had a great time so far in Year 1 and we are excited for the last Summer term ahead. We will make sure we have lots of fun and work hard!
Here are some additional sheets for your child to do that have lots of questions following a similar format. These are good as they just need a bit of input and then they can complete the rest independently. Please do not feel you need to do all of these at all. They are just for you to use in place of any of the activities on Dojo.
This term we are exploring Traditional Tales; we will be looking at well known stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. We will be using our topic not only to inspire our writing, but also our Design and Technology projects. We will be designing a structure for the Three Little Pigs to live in! Hopefully we will use materials that are strong enough to keep out any pesky wolves!
Use the links below to find out more about the different topics we will be learning about this half term.
You can visit our virtual library to listen to stories we use in class. We have lots linked to our P.S.H.E topics.

All about the human body
At St Mary's we are trying to be Heart Smart. This means that we use our hearts and our minds to make good decisions for ourselves and others.
This week we have thought about who we are grateful to and why.
Here are some of the things we thought of:
I am grateful to Zara for always helping me in class.
I am grateful to the dinner ladies who help me cut my food and carry my tray sometimes.
I am grateful to Mrs Westlake for helping me with my sounds.
I am happy Tom is my friend because he helps me to have fun.
I am grateful to Freddie because he says kinds things to everyone.
