Welcome to Class 3
Hello and welcome to Class 3.
My name is Isabel Calnon and I am Class 3’s teacher. I have been at Milverton since 2007; having taught in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire previously. I enjoy teaching all subjects but particularly music, science and taking singing assemblies.
In Class 3, we are supported by a lovely team of Teaching Assistants: Mrs Carter each morning, Mrs Brown on Mondays and Tuesdays, Mrs Downs on Wednesdays and Thursdays and Mrs Cutler on Friday morning.
Class 3 is the start of the children’s journey through Key Stage Two. We aim to make the transition between Key Stage One and Key Stage Two as smooth as possible. The expectations of the curriculum increases rapidly in Year Three; however, the children build upon their previous skills, at their own individual level and are encouraged to be independent, resourceful and confident learners. Children learn best when they are happy and secure, so Class 3 children are expected to be responsible and kind. They support and care for each other and carry out daily jobs in the classroom. We learn that we are all special and unique, and that we make a fantastic team.
Our curriculum is built around termly Quests that follow a two year rolling programme. Alongside English and Maths, the wider curriculum enables every child to engage and follow their interests through challenges, questioning and lots of fun!
We welcome parental involvement, so if you have any questions, offers of help or special skills to share with us, we would love to see you.
