Welcome to Reception Class

Welcome to Class R!  In Class R, we are lucky enough to have two teachers, creating a job share team.   

Mrs Smith teaches on a Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday and Mrs Nicholls teaches on a Thursday and Friday.  Mrs Smith has taught in Reception at Milverton for 7 years, having previously worked elsewhere in Somerset, teaching in both KS1 and KS2 classes.  She is also the Early Years co-ordinator, working closely with our pre-school team to support the learning and transition of our newest school members, and Maths Lead for the school.   

Mrs Nicholls has taught in lots of different year groups at Milverton School.  It’s such a wonderful place to work, she has been here teaching and learning with the children since 2008! Before joining Milverton, Mrs Nicholls taught elsewhere in Somerset and also in Kent. Mrs Nicholls is also the Pastoral Lead at Milverton School.

In our class we also benefit from the support and skills of Miss Chiplin and Mrs Egerton, who work with us every day.  

In Class R, we love to learn through play, which we refer to as our ‘Own Learning’.  We are always embarking on new adventures, such as travelling the seven seas as pirates, exploring outer space or working out how to pull up an Enormous Turnip!  We all love to play and learn outdoors too, especially on the bikes, scooters and in our mud kitchen. We are a strong team and we enjoy planning exciting learning opportunities together by exploring and developing the children’s interests and challenging them to extend their learning by asking lots of questions!   

We really hope that Class R will be a fantastic first step into your child’s school journey and look forward to working with you to make it a true success.
