Reception

 

The Reception Class at Dunster First School is taught by Miss Collins.

Mrs Vickery also teaches in Reception, most Tuesdays.

Support assistants are Mrs McClafferty, Mrs Nicholls and Mr Hardie.

During their time in Reception, the children spend most of their days learning through play and by exploring the world around them. We are always very busy! Below are some photos taken throughout the year that show just some of the exciting things we get up to.
