Children enjoy learning through play, and often talk about their learning as play. Learning in reception is accessed through real, meaningful experiences.  This provides inspiration, challenge and ideas for future learning.
Self- initiated play and adult led and directed learning, supports children in further developing areas of interest and ensures access to a wide range of opportunities.  We look forward to sharing all of this with you, in part, through this class page.

Doubling

This week we have been learning all about how to double numbers. We have loved listening to songs all about doubles and finding out different ways to solve doubling problems. Some of the different methods we found were; using our fingers, using numicon, using objects and even using a number line to help us count on.

Red Nose Day 2019

On Friday Reception W ditched their blue uniforms for their best red clothes today to help raise money for the Comic Relief charity. In the morning, we completed lots of red themed challenges. In the afternoon, we performed our many talents in front of our friends. Some of the highlights included: telling jokes, dancing and singing!

Mrs Jackson's Last Day

Today was Mrs Jackson's last day before she goes on her maternity leave so we celebrated with a baby shower for her. We took part in different challenges using lots of different skills such as estimating, measuring, designing, making, writing and using our senses to help us guess. We had a really lovely day and we hope that Mrs Jackson enjoys every minute with her new baby and we cannot wait to meet him!

World Book Day

We loved celebrating World Book Day, we dressed up as our favourite characters and spent lots of time talking to each other about our favourite books. Some of us even brought books in from home that we enjoyed sharing with our friends.

Weighing

This week we have loved learning about weighing. We have enjoyed using the balance scales to compare the weight of different animals from the Jungle Book, some of us then even found the weight of things in cubes! We found out all about the different language we can use when weighting things. We were surprised to find out that just because something is bigger doesn’t mean it will be heavier.

The Gingerbread Man

We have loved our visit from The Gingerbread Man, he brought us a copy of his book and we have worked really hard learning the story, acting it out and writing all about it. Then one morning we came to school and he had disappeared! We got lots of emails from him and we had to work out where he was, we loved talking about his adventures and guessing where he had been around school. The Gingerbread Man then emailed us from the supermarket, he brought lots of ingredients back to school for us to make our own biscuits. Fortunately they didn’t run away and we got to take them home to enjoy!

Reception Nativity

On Tuesday the children put on a wonderful performance of their Christmas show Whoops-a-Daisy-Angel. They sang all the songs beautifully and did a super job of telling the story of the nativity. Everyone thought they were fantastic! Well done Reception!

Where the wild things are

Today for our Design and Technology Super Learning Day the children designed and made their own 'Wild Thing' sock puppet. The children enjoyed thinking about what features their Wild Thing would have. Some puppets had sharp teeth, big eyes, long hair and even claws! Children also enjoyed putting on shows for their friends using the puppets in our puppet theater and using the stick puppets we had in our areas of provision to tell stories.

Where's Wally?

This week we have received lots of postcards from Wally! We have been guessing where he has visited in our local area. On Monday he sent us a postcard from ASDA so we wrote our own shopping lists and some of us went to go and see if we could find him. On Tuesday we guessed that he had visited Pudsey Park, a group of us went and looked to see if we could see the things that Wally had talked about in his postcard like the big climbing net and the visitors centre. On Wednesday he sent us a postcard from the leisure centre so lots of us talked about the things we have done when we have been to the leisure centre, we even had a go at drawing some pictures and doing some writing! On Thursday we were not sure where we thought Wally was so we used the computer to help us, it suggested that he was at Yeadon Tarn so some of us went in the minibus to see what we could see. Friday’s postcard was from Leeds so we talked about the times we had visited Leeds. We also made some biscuits that looked just like Wally!

Snails!

We have been caring for our class snails. We have been giving them a bath, making sure they have fresh soil and lots of yummy food.

Apples

This week we visited our orchard to see what fruit we could find. We worked as a team to pick lots of apples and carried them back to our classroom. We had a go at sorting our apples by what they looked like and then we got to taste some at carpet time. We thought our apples were nice, delicious, juicy, tasty, sour, sweet and crunchy! We picked so many apples that we even got one each to take home at the end of the day!

Number 2!

This week we have been busy learning all about the number 2. We have been going on number hunts, finding two of things, sorting pictures of things with two on and writing number 2!

Our first week at school!

We have had lots of fun this week exploring our new classrooms both inside and outside. We have enjoyed keeping busy accessing lots of activities and meeting new friends. We have also impressed the grown ups with showing off all the things we already know. We can't wait for next week when we can get to know each other's wonderful personalities even more!

Flower Power!

We looked at and had a smell of some sweet pea flowers. Some of the children enjoyed identifying all of the different colours they could see and drew pictures. The children carefully selected colours to match the flowers. Well done! Some children called the sweet peas "rainbow flowers."
