St Mary's RC Primary School

Full of grace, we grow and learn together

Year 1 2019- 2020

Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to the new school year. This term, we will be learning all about 'the People of God's world'; especially those who work in hospitals and keep us healthy.

In History we will be learning about Florence Nightingale, who famously who changed the role of nurses and how they were taught. At St Mary's we like to learn by experience so we have used drama to imagine the voyage to Turkey and what the nurses had to do in hospital.

We will also be learning about Mary Seacole, she maybe not as famous as Florence Nightingale now but she was then!


In Art we are learning about colour and how it makes us feel. We have already had a fantastic trip to the Whitworth  Gallery, a building around in Florence Nightingale's lifetime. We experienced looking a patterns and shading  colours. We used a map to find our round and answer questions about the art works.

Welcome to the Spring Term. Come and look at what we are learning and when.
