Welcome to Class 1

Welcome to Class One! In class one we have two teachers, Mrs Lewis (Monday & Tuesday) and Mrs Atterton (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday). Mrs Lewis is excited to move up with her old class and for them to be a big part of her 10th year at Milverton Primary School. When not in school Mrs Lewis loves walking her black Labrador in the Somerset countryside and spending time with her family, especially playing family games, cuddling up and watching films and going on adventures such as canoeing and bike rides.  Mrs Atterton has returned from Maternity leave to begin her 6th year at Milverton. Prior to teaching at Milverton, Mrs Atterton worked in a pre-school and then as a reception TA before completing her PGCE with and early years' specialism and so early years educating is at her core. As a parent herself, Mrs Atterton believes in treating the children as she would her own and nurturing them to the happiest, best versions of the themselves. Mrs Atterton attended Milverton School as a pupil herself and loves to watch the children follow the same path she did and being a positive part of their school experience. 


We are also lucky enough to have amazing support in our busy classroom from Mrs Cutler and Mrs Bray as our classroom teaching assistants. We are also lucky enough to be working with Mr Wedderkopp again this year and he will be taking us on many forest school adventures throughout the year.


Mrs Lewis and Mrs Atterton are passionate early years teachers who enjoy thinking creatively with children’s interests to teach a holistic curriculum where children will work both collaboratively and independently in their own learning. Children in Class One will continue to learn in their continuous provision like they did in Reception.  In addition, they will have whole class and small group teaching, to challenge and extend their learning. We love to chat and ask lots of questions, as we believe in Class One that this is important for our learning (as well as reading and sharing books!).       


We are looking forward to getting stuck into life in Class One and building on what the children learnt last year in Reception Class. We are conscious that Class One’s first experience of school was a little different last year. This year we hope to give Class One the full Milverton experience!
