Reception

Mrs Hutchinson/Mrs Dunn

Welcome to Reception

Hello, we are Reception Class! There are 30 of us in the class and we are lucky enough to have two teachers, Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Dunn. Our teaching assistants are Miss Bailey and Mrs Wright and they work with us everyday. We are really looking forward to being part of St Philip Neri School and spending time with our Buddies in Year 6. We will be exploring and learning lots in our classroom and in the out door area. We are especially excited about playing in the new mud kitchen! Keep checking our page for updates to fine out all the activities and learning we will be doing this year.
