Welcome to Reception Class

Welcome to Class R!  My name is Katy Smith and I have the pleasure of teaching our Reception class at Milverton Primary School.  I have taught here for over 8 years, having previously worked elsewhere in Somerset across both KS1 and KS2.  As the Early Years co-ordinator for the school, I am lucky to work closely with our pre-school team to support the learning and transition of our newest school members, ensuring that they get the best possible start to their time in our care.  


In our class, we also benefit from the support and skills of Mrs Egerton, Miss Chiplin who work with us every day.  As Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral), I am office based on a Wednesday, when our super team take over the reigns for the 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! Each term, we have a different focus to our 'Quest' learning, which supports the children on their journey from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 1.   


I 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.
