Reception - Mrs Leadbeater

Welcome to Reception!smiley

Please look in Summer 2 for our new topic and activities.



Please see below for some fun activities to complete with your child over the Easter holiday.

Our PE sessions are every Thursday afternoon this year. Please ensure your child has a Waverley PE top and black shorts with them each week. It is helpful to have a drawstring bag which stays on your child's peg for the half term.


Reading books will be changed once a week on a Friday. Please make sure that your child's book is in their folder on a Thursday to be collected in.




Our new topic was to be 'All Around the World' and we were going to continue with this topic focusing on polar regions. We were to read Penguin Pete by Marcus Pfister and Geronimo by David Walliams. Following this would have been an Easter related topic called Hot Cross Bunny based on the book by M Christina Butler and Gavin Scott.


Our next Maths topic was to be Spatial Awareness followed by 2D and 3D shape.


How about trying this fun shadow drawing activity?
