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 teaching at Milverton since 2007, having taught in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire previously. I coordinate art, music and science within the school and therefore particularly enjoy teaching these subjects. I love teaching singing and taking the school singing assemblies.
In Class 3, we are supported by lovely Teaching Assistants: Mrs Farrow every Monday, Mrs Storrs- Fox each morning and Mrs Lapthorn on Tuesday to Friday. Also, Mrs Bray will be covering Mrs Lapthorn’s hours whilst she is teaching the ‘Catch Up’ sessions this term. On Wednesday afternoon, the children have PE with Premier Sports coaches and RE with Mrs Lapthorn.
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 as the curriculum expectations increase rapidly in Year 3. However, the children build upon their previous skills, at their own individual level and they are encouraged to be independent, resourceful and confident learners. We aim to develop a ‘growth mind-set’ – a positive attitude to learning. In Class 3, we like to have lots of fun, as children learn best when they are happy and secure.
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. We place great emphasis on our school values: caring for each other, aspiring to achieve our best and developing a sense of belonging by working as a fantastic team!
