Welcome to Reception Class!

Reception Class is the first class children attend at Hunwick Primary School. Mrs Round, Miss Armstrong (AM) and Mrs Elstob (PM) work in Reception Class and love to get to know the new children and help them become fantastic members of Hunwick Primary School! Learning new skills is so important in Reception, however, we do a lot of our learning through play! In Reception, the children can follow their own interests; topics are often catered to what the children like! Reception is a creative, fun and warm environment to explore and learn in. We focus on subjects such as Phonics, Literacy and Maths, as these are the fundamental areas of Early Learning.

As well as learning new educational skills, we work on becoming members of a new school community. We learn to form new friendships, be more independent, follow structures and routines and to let our big personalities shine!

Please take a look at our half termly newsletter to see the exciting topics we will be covering in class!
