Reception 2017 - 2018

Miss Dunn

After working in law for ten years I realised that my true passion was teaching, as I had been privileged enough to work as a volunteer teaching English as a second language to young children. Following the successful completion of a Masters in Inclusive Education I then completed my PGCE training at Hull University. My first year of teaching was in a Year 1 class in Hull. In September 2015 I was thrilled to be invited to join the wonderful team at Westminster Primary School. My passion is working with children in the early years of their education, so working with the children in the Reception/Year 1 class is perfect for me.

When I am not working I enjoy spending time walking, canoeing and gentle bike rides!

My door is always open to parents, so please do not hesitate to pop in.

Mrs Dudley-Davies

This is my third year at Westminster Primary School, after spending two years working in key stage 2, I was thrilled to be asked to work with the children in Year 1 and Reception. Prior to joining Westminster Primary School I had worked for 7 years in the nursery, so I already knew a lot of the children. I have recently successfully completed the ELKLAN course which will enable me to work closely with children who need support with communication development across the curriculum.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Mrs Farrall

This is my third year of working at Westminster School. I worked for two years in Year 3/4 and this is my first year in EYFS. I'm also part of the school PTA.

In my spare time I love spending time with my family.

Miss Coombes

This is my fourth year at Westminster School. I have been working in Reception for three years, which I thoroughly enjoy. prior to joining Westminster Primary, I worked in a Nursery for five years.

Part of my role in school involves ensuring the children are safe and happy each lunchtime and I also run the Breakfast Club Food Area each morning.

In my spare time I love spending time with my son and my friends.

Welcome to Reception 2017/18


We love teaching you and seeing how much learning you are doing.


Autumn 2


Have a look at this terms Topic Plan to see what activities your child will be experiencing. We encourage children to be active, curious and inquisitive learners.  We promote opportunities for all  children to tell us what they would like to learn about and enable their environment to allow them to initiate their own learning and activities.
