Reception 2020 - 2021

Miss Hall

This is my third year at Westminster Community Primary School. I completed my degree in the summer of 2018 at the University of Gloucestershire. I am excited to be working with Reception Class this year as their teacher. I will always be happy to talk to you about your child and their progress and a member of our Reception Class Team will be on the door at the start and end of each day.

Miss Coombes

I have been working at Westminster Primary since 2014 during this time I have worked in Year 2, Year 6, Reception and now in Year 1. My passion is working with our younger children and I feel privileged to be involved in their journey through school.

Mrs Davies

I have been working at Westminster Primary School since 2013. After spending two years working in key stage 2, I was thrilled to be asked to work with the children in Reception. Prior to joining Westminster Primary School I worked for 7 years in the local nursery. I have been highly trained in the EYFS curriculum and have also completed the ELKLAN course. The ELKLAN course enables 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.

I have also recorded and uploaded (to Google Classroom) some videos to support you when working with your child. You can find these under 'Support Videos'.


You have been given a sound mat (pictured here) in your resource pack. The children will use them to support their writing. They will be familiar with how to use one, as we use it daily in school!

Your child has been assigned a book on Google Classroom. You will be assigned a new book regularly. The book has been chosen based on your child's phonic knowledge. It's important to read with your child every day.

Below is a fantastic resource made by a local school. You can click on any book in the virtual library and it will take you to a webpage to read or listen to it. It's a great way to experience new stories during this time.
