Year 1 comprises of two classes: Lark and Rook
Miss Caswell teaches Lark class and Miss Neal teaches Rook class.
Year 1 at Meadowside aims to teach the curriculum through a range of fun, interesting, practical and written activities. Each term we have a focus topic and link all of our learning to these themes.
Our topics are ‘Our Place in Space’, ‘Roots, Shoots and Muddy Boots’ and ‘We’re All Going on a Summer Holiday’.
We encourage the children to work together and promote social skills through all areas of our learning and play. We focus on key skills for learning including phonics and reading, kinetic letters handwriting and maths skills. We are keen to promote outdoor learning and will provide various opportunities for the children to add to their outdoor experiences. Throughout the year the children will engage in a range of learning experiences including welcoming external visitors, engaging in practical activities and trips within the local community.
