Welcome to Class 1
Class 1 has the advantage of having not one but two teachers this year. We hope that this will offer consistency and a smooth transition from Class R where they were already used to this.
Mrs McDonagh (Mondays and Tuesdays) has been at Milverton School for many years (the actual number of years is subject to a strict non-disclosure agreement between the two of us!) and is still as passionate about educating children as ever. Miss Gauntlett (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays), an ex-pupil of the school, is in her 3rd year at Milverton School and has been working in the education sector for the last 6 years. We are both parents of children at primary school and, therefore, always have in the forefront of our minds how we would like and expect our own children to be treated and taught and put this into practice in our classroom.
As early years specialists we adopt a variety of teaching styles to ensure that the needs of all the children are met with a diverse and accessible curriculum. In Class 1 we want the children to feel safe and that they belong and are valued.
Parents are very welcome in our classroom and please feel free to ask us any questions. We would ask, where possible, that you catch us at the end of the day as the start of the day can be rather busy!
We look forward to getting to know our children and parents throughout the year.
Miss Gauntlett and Mrs McDonagh
