Welcome from Ms. King and the team...
“I love teaching, especially phonics and English. I am passionate about children engaging with the creative arts so you can anticipate lots of songs, art, and dance!
I am thrilled to be teaching Barn Owls class whilst Mrs. Baldwin is on maternity leave, it’s going to be an exciting year. If you need information or support, please make contact via Class Dojo or the main school office, and I will be happy to help.”
Better never stops!
Mrs. Short (Mon-Weds) and Ms. Jonas (all week): Learning Support Team
“We love supporting the learning at Milton Abbot School and especially enjoy Key Stage 1, where there is always fun to be found in the children’s ideas and so much progress to watch as the children grow and develop.”
Reading and Phonics: the key learning priority
Reading continues to be a key priority for our Key Stage 1 learners and any practice at home can make all the difference, so thank you for any and all time you can apply to this. We have a great track record of reading success at Milton Abbot School, enhanced by the systematic approach of the ‘Read Write Inc.’ phonics scheme.

The children go into different groups each morning to be taught reading and phonic skills, to ensure the teaching matches their stage of knowledge. ‘Read Write Inc’ regularly assesses the progress of each pupil and this means they can move on to the next set/group when they are secure – a child can move quite rapidly but that’s where extra practice at home really helps.
