Welcome to Class 3
I am Mrs Smith and I joined the school in September 2014, having previously taught in Bridgwater and Devon for several years. I am in school on Wednesday through to Friday.
I am Becky McDonagh and I have taught at Milverton School for many years. I have also worked in other schools in Somerset and Dorset. I teach on Mondays and Tuesdays each week.
We are a little different in Class 3 as the children are lucky enough to have not one but two class teachers, forming a job share team. As a partnership, we discuss and communicate face-to-face, in addition to the many emails and texts that fly back and forth between us throughout the week! Mandy Cutler is our class Teaching Assistant. Richard Stead, Head Teacher, teaches the class computing on a Monday afternoon and the children receive PE from a Premier Sport coach one session each week on a Thursday afternoon.
In Class 3, we endeavour to make the transition from Key Stage 1 into Key Stage 2 a smooth one. Our aim throughout the year is to build children’s independence so they can become more responsible learners and citizens. We have three weekly Special Helpers who are given additional jobs to help keep the classroom organised and functioning and to help the adults out if required. We also give 6 children monitoring responsibilities which they have for half a term.
We are available before and after school should parents wish to come in and see us. If you want to discuss or look at your child’s work, may we recommend you visit after school as the mornings are often busy.
We welcome any offers of help such as listening to children read or going on class visits. Please share with us any talents or skills you have which we could show the children. We can all make a difference to the children’s learning experience!
