We have had an amazing week learning all about space. We have used the computer and lots of information books to help us work out what is going on in space. These are some of the facts we have learned.....
Alfie - Planets are sphere shapes
Harvey Lee - The sun is very hot place
Chloe - Astronauts need to wear special helmets to save their eyes
As you can see we are full of interesting facts.
Week ending 26th June 2015
Well what a week it has been. We have continued learning about zoo and wild animals and we have learned so many new facts and information. We started the week off by thinking about how some of the animals in the wild can camouflage themselves and appear hidden. We talked about why this is so important for them to be able to do so. We then set about creating our own tiger stripes using paint and shaving foam. We read and followed a series of instructions and then set about following them. Look at the work we have produced.
We also retold the story of Rumble in the Jungle outside using animal masks. We recreated the actions, noises and movements of many different jungle animals. Here are some quotes from the children
Alfie - I can roar loud like a lion
Chloe - I am a gazelle, i can jump through the air
Kacey - I am a snake, i slither on the ground and no one can see me
We have also had a very exciting surprise this week. Mrs Evans had a large letter delivered. we were sooooo excited to find out what was inside. Have a guess? Need a clue? It was from Buckingham Palace. Can you guess yet? Remember a little while ago we talked about us writing letters, drawing pictures and painting about Princess Charlotte? Well we have had a reply. This is the letter we received. We took it into assembly so that everyone could share in the excitement.
Week ending 19th June 2015
This week we have been busy preparing ourselves for our forthcoming trip to Blackpool Zoo. We started the week off looking at the zoo on the website. We are so good at knowing that we can find out information by using the computer or a book. We talked about the different animals we would see, where they live, what they eat and what country they originally came from. It was fascinating
We talked about the role of the zoo keeper, what is his job all about and why is it so important. We then thought about what we would do if we were a zoo keeper for the day and what we would do if an animal escaped. Gasp!
We decided that we would have to create wanted posters. Describing the animal in detail.
Remember to come back and visit our blog next week as we learn more about the animal kingdom!
Bye for now!

This week we have been developing our understanding of the Gingerbread Man and repetitive refrains. We listened to the story and joined in with the key parts such as Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man. We love this part of the story. So we looked at lots of other traditional stories and found out their repetitive refrains. This is what we learned ........
Nicola - The Enormous Turnip has they pulled and they pulled but it didn't come up
Harley - The Three Bears has Who has been sleeping in my bed
We then took it in turns to retell the stories that we know so well. We had a great time and we helped each other.
Alfie read us The Elves and the Shoemaker
Jamie read us The Enormous Turnip
Harvey Lee read us Little Red Riding Hood
The adults in the classroom couldn't believe just how amazing we were using different voices and pretending to be the teacher. Amazing and very talented children children we have in our class.
Week ending 5th June 2015
Welcome back to our first blog in our very last term in Reception. We have so much to fit into the next few weeks so we better get cracking.
This week we have been learning all about Goldilocks and the 3 Bears and we will be learning more about traditional stories for the next few weeks. We thought carefully about what we already knew, we learned about the different characters, how traditional stories started and how they ended and how sometimes the language used in them repeated itself.
This is some of our favourite stories......
Isabel - I like Sleeping Beauty it's my favourite
Alfie - My favourite story is The Elves and the Shoemaker, it's so funny when the little elves make the shoes
Chloe - I love Snow White, I like it best when the prince comes and kisses her and wakes her up.
We thought about how different characters feel in different stories and we decided to write a letter from Goldilocks to the 3 Bears saying sorry for what she did. The finished results looked fantastic.
Week ending 15th May 2015
Welcome back to or blog. This is week number 1 of our Express Yourself Art and Design two week enhancement and what a very busy and productive week it has been. We started the week of by using clay, this was a very new experience for us and we developed a range of different skills as a result of using new tools. We talked about sunflowers and how they grow, the colour and how they smell. Then we created some fantastic 3D representations.
Week ending 8th May 2015
Ahoy there everyone!! As you can see this week has been all about pirates and what a fantastic week of learning we have had!
We started the week off listening to a story about Gingerbread Pirates, it was soooooooo funny! It was based on the story of the Gingerbread Man. The gingerbread escaped and climbed aboard a ship and looked for a crew! It was great!
We then thought about how we could share the recipe with others. We talked about the different ways we can share information and decided upon writing. We talked about the information we needed to include for example ingredients and the way we can use bossy language to tell people what they need to do.
Week ending 1st May 2015
Welcome back to our blog. Where has the time gone? Our 2 week Maths enhancement has come to an end and we have learned so very much. Take a look below to find out exactly what we have been doing.
We started the week off in PE using positional language - we used hockey sticks and balls and cones and carefully guided the ball in and out and around the different cones, talking about directions as we did so. We really impressed the grown ups - they were amazed at how focused we were on the task. Here we are in action.
We also went on a shape hunt around school and looked at the different shapes we could find in the environment. We were surprised that we found so many, this is what we had to say.....
Alfie - the tiles on the ceiling are square and there are lots of them
Jenny - I found a circle on a door
Harvey-Lee - I saw numbers and shapes and they were everywhere
We have also played shape dominoes, played in the toy shop adding 2 groups of coins together to find the total and been busy measuring. So as you can see Monster Maths has been a really big success!
Next week it is all about pirates. We asked the children to think about what they wanted to learn about and our learning is going to be based around pirates, so next week expect plenty of pirate writing, lots of pirate numbers and maybe, just maybe, a little bit of pirate baking. Watch this space.
Thank you for remembering to bring your blue language and communication bags back every week, we love reading your comments about how much your child enjoyed interacting with the resources, so a big to all you grown ups!
Remember reading books are changed every Monday and it is really important that you return them so that we can read your comments and work together to develop your child's reading skills.
Have a great long weekend and we will see you all fresh and ready to learn on Tuesday.

For the next two weeks we are going to be taking part in a Monster Maths enhancement. As part of the local cluster of schools we are having a two week Maths enhancement. We will be learning all about Maths in lots of different, practical ways. So here is a peek at what we have been up to this week.
Week ending 2nd April 2015
Welcome back to Reception W's blog. This week we have been busy learning about the Easter story. We started the week off thinking about what happened in the Easter Story and we talked about our own feelings and thoughts and how we can use them to make a positive difference to our own lives and the lives of others.
These are some of the quotes the children have said ....
Megan - Jesus was inside a cave
Alfie - Hot cross buns have a white cross on them
Kacey - Jesus was born again to help his friends
We have also been busy developing our skills when following instructions. We talked about the recipe and what we needed to do to make bunny bread. Yes you did read it correctly, bunny bread. Here is a picture of the recipe and the finished product. This is what we said after tasting them...
Mmmmmm they taste good - Harvey Lee
They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside - Lewis
Week ending 27th March 2015
This week we have been learning all about Australia. We started the week off looking at the differences and similarities between Australia and all of the other countries that we have been learning about and this is what we found out.......
Chloe - I know that there is desert in Australia and lots of animals live there
Alfie - If you throw a boomerang it will come back to you
Dylan - Kangaroos have a baby in their pouch
In PE this week we moved like different Australian animals, we slithered like snakes, bounced like Kangaroos and climbed like a Koala. We had a great time and this helped us to develop our knowledge of what happens to our bodies after we exercise.
We looked at some boomerangs and thought carefully about how they were made, what from and what decorations they had on them. We learned that if they are thrown correctly they will come back - we didn't try inside the classroom just in case they didn't come back!
What we did do is design our own boomerangs, they look amazing, we talked about colours, shape and textures and why they had certain patterns and animals. Take a look at our work.
Week ending 20th March 2015
Welcome back to our class blog. What another very busy fact filled fun week in Reception W. As you know we are learning about a different country each week and this week we have been learning about England, in particular, London. We have talked about the different iconic buildings that are in London, looking at Big Ben, London Eye and Buckingham Palace. We used a map to locate these buildings and talked about their structure, what they are made from and their varying sizes. We then set about creating our very own 3D structure. We used a variety of resources and worked together as a team developing our turn taking skills, conversation and ability to work together as part of a team.
We had an amazing time. Even Mrs Peet one of our governors joined us and commented on just how hard we had worked and how well behaved we were. We make all of the grown ups in our room so very proud. Here is what we thought of afternoon tea .......
Alfie - Oh wow I loved it. It was so much fun. I know all about England now and i made the London Eye.
Logan - I love the scones. I had cream and jam
Jenson - Mmmmmmmmm
What can we say? a definite success.
Next week the children have decided that they would like to learn more about Australia. If you have anything at home that you think may help us in our learning then please bring it into school. Thank you!
Also thank you to all of those parents who attended our parents evenings. I am sure you will agree that the work and effort you saw in your child's learning journey was fantastic. We have learned so very much and will continue to do so.
Week ending Friday 13th March 2015
Thank you for taking the time to come back and visit our blog. Yet again we have worked our socks off this week. Each week we are taking a new country and learning as much as we can about it. We are finding it so very interesting and we now know just how important books and the computer are in helping us find out information. So this week has been all about India.
At the start of the week we thought about the differences and similarities between Indian food and English food, we learned about exotic spices and samples some poppadum’s, chapatti’s and naan bread along with mango chutney. This is what we said about our tasting session ……..
Alfie – I like the poppadum’s, they are round like a circle and crunchy like crisps
Chloe – It’s very spicy and smells fruity
We also have been busy making and learning about dream catchers. We thought about our wishes and what is important to us and kept this in our minds when we started to create. This was really interesting and there was a lot of problem solving involved for example, how could we make the holes, how could we thread the string, what different ways could we attach the feathers. We thought out loud and shared our ideas and tested them. Amazing. These are now on display in our reading corner and every visitor we have had in our room has commented on how good they look.
We have also been learning about the weather and climate in India. We have talked about and learned about the sunsets and how the colours all merge together and light up the sky. We used tissue paper and watered down glue to make our own Indian sunsets, we developed our tearing skills and talked about top to bottom and left to right orientation as well as developing our hand eye co-ordination. So much learned from just 1 activity. We are now going to add animals to these sunsets and put them on display.
We have also been learning about celebrations and festivities and how they are celebrated in different cultures. We have spent some time looking at and making Rangoli pictures and Mehndi patterns. We loved these. We talked about colours, textures, sizes and patterns. We focused and concentrated really carefully on what we were doing. The results are outstanding. We have made 1 giant display of all of our learning so that when it is parents evening we can celebrate our hard work and achievements.
We also developed our senses, we talked about Indian cuisine being beautifully created with lots of different spices. We created our own smell pots. We used ingredients such as coffee beans, tomato sauce, mixed spices, oranges and placed all of these into little pots. Then the tricky bit, we used a blindfold to cover our eyes and then used our sense of smell to try and guess what was inside the pots. This was really interesting. Some of them were difficult to identify but we could talk about and share our opinions regarding what we liked and what we disliked.
On Friday we are going to celebrate Red Nose Day. We can’t wait to post a picture of us joining in with the celebrations so watch this space!
Remember to come back to read our blog next week and find out what we have learned about Great Britain. Have a great weekend. Staff and children in Reception W.
p.s. If anyone has any empty pringles tubes we will be more than happy to take them off your hands. Pictures to follow!

Hello and welcome back to our blog. We have so much we want to share with you this week. As you know we have been learning about Africa. We have thought about the similarities and differences between England and Africa. We have found out so much information and we have really learned such a lot. Take a look below.....
We also learned about Khamsa hand, our helping hands, we talked about the things that we need our hands to do and how important they are to us in our everyday life. We learned that these hands are decorated in lots of bright, rich colours and that they show our hands are important and very precious.
This is what some of us said about how we use our hands .....
Jenny - I use my hands to eat my dinner
Alfie - I use my hands for lots of things and I like helping my friends with things
Georgia - I use my hands to write and draw pictures.
As you can see we have thought very carefully about our hands and what we do with them.
We have also been busy weaving using the patterns that we would see on African animals. We talked about shades of colours, patterns and texture, we described how we thought these animals would feel if we could really touch them. This is what we said .......
Phoebe - I think an elephant would feel lumpy and bumpy
Chloe - I think a giraffe would be fluffy and soft
Logan - I think a tiger would be hard
Week ending 27th February 2015
Hi and welcome back to our class blog.
Firstly can we say Kung Hei Fat Choi!
I am sure you know what this means as this week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated. We have found out so much information from using the book and the computer. Take a look at what we have been doing!
We have had such an amazing and very busy and productive week.
We started the week off with the really friendly people from WCLT who came to work alongside us in the classroom on Monday. We talked about all of the things we had learned during the 5 week programme, ranging from why we need to eat a variety of foods to how long we need to clean our teeth for and how often.
We have also been thinking about the different things we can do to stay healthy. This is what some of the children said
Alfie – running around and exercise makes you healthy
Chloe – Being happy can make you healthy
Nathan – drinking lots of water makes your brain work
We thought about the variety of things we eat for snack and thought about something we could make that would be healthy and warm us up on a cold winter’s day; we came up with the idea of soup. We chopped lots of different vegetables into small pieces and placed them into a pan, we boiled them and blended them and made a really tasty, homemade soup. Delicious!
We also used the balances to weigh different foods, we talked about how we could use our hands to weigh things and learned some new language such as heavier than and lighter than. We then started to order different food and talked about things that were heavier than and lighter than others. A great learning experience.
We looked at the biggest set of teeth we have ever seen and got to busy using a toothbrush and toothpaste and times ourselves cleaning them for 2 minutes, this was great fun and we could really see exactly where we needed to scrub and what our teeth look like at the back of our mouth.
We have also taken our staying healthy theme into the maths area, we talked about numbers, what comes before and after a given number and some of us ordered them from 0 – 20. Try asking us a tricky question; we are really good at identifying 1 more and 1 less.
And finally, our Chatterbox challenge, thank you for your donations. We have really helped to make a difference to this very worthwhile cause. Here we are doing the actions to See the Little Bunnies
The staff in Reception W would like to wish you all a relaxing weeks holiday and we cant wait to see you all again on Monday 23rd February. Bye for now
Week ending 6th February 2015
What another fantastic week we have had. We have been very busy this week learning all about staying healthy and what kind of things we can do to look after our bodies. Firstly, we learned about the importance of exercise, we talked about why we need to exercise and what happens to our bodies before and after exercising. We took a 1 minute challenge and talked about how our heart was beating before the exercise and then after the 1 minute we placed our hands on our heart and talked about why is was beating faster.
We then went into the hall with the staff from Wigan Culture and Leisure trust and talked about how we need to eat the right types of food to stay healthy, we learned all about food that we eat that we call treats and the food we eat everyday like fruit and vegetables that help our bodies to work. We used a wrap and lots of different types of vegetables and made a happy smiley face. We also talked about how being happy was another way in which we could help ourselves to stay healthy and safe.
We also made ourselves a healthy fruit salad for snack. We talked about where different fruit comes form, what it feels like, what it smells alike and perhaps most important what it tastes like. Safely, we used knives and set about cutting up the fruit into smaller chunks. Whilst doing this we talked about how we needed to keep ourselves safe and look after each other.
We also then made ourselves a healthy lunchbox. We looked at lots of different types of food and talked about how they gave us energy, made our bones and teeth strong and why we need to have some fatty foods in our diet. Here we are with our healthy lunchboxes
We also have been thinking about our chatterbox challenge rhyme and I am sure that the children have told you all about or new song. The theme for the chatterbox challenge is Ben and Holly and their garden adventures. So the first rhyme we have been singing is called Royal Fairy Picnic Time – log onto www.chatterboxchallenge.org.uk to find the words and you too can join in with the challenges at home.
In fact, speaking of singing we have also changed the words to another well-known song – If you’re happy and you know it to If you’re healthy and you know it. Here are the words.
Healthy Song (To the tune of ‘If You’re Happy and You Know It’)
To stay healthy you should always eat good food
To stay healthy you should always eat good food
If you’re healthy and you know it and you really want to show it
To stay healthy you should always eat good food
You need lots of fruit and veggies in your diet
You need lots of fruit and veggies in your diet
You need apples, you need peas
You need bananas, and green beans
You need lots of fruit and veggies in your diet!
You need cereals and bread and pasta too
They’re all carbohydrates and they’re good for you
You need cereals and bread - and rice and pasta too
They give you energy for what you need to do!
You need protein to make your body grow
You need protein to make your body grow
You need fish and meat and eggs, if you want strong legs
Yes you need protein to make your body grow!
And you must not eat too many snacks and treats
Have an apple and not a bag of sweets
Always eat your 5 a day
To keep those illnesses away
And eat fruit and veggies as your snacks and treats.
When you’re thirsty you really need to think
Always try to choose a really healthy drink
Go for water and milk
Not coke or something pink
Always try to choose a really healthy drink!
To link in with our chatterbox challenge we have also been busy designing and making our own fairy-tale and elf castles. We thought about how we needed to design it before we could begin to construct it. Have a look at some of our amazing designs. The children took so much care and attention when creating them and were rightly proud of their work.

Happy New Year! Welcome back to our class blog and we can't wait to show you what we have been learning about in 2015!
This week we started to learn all about animals and their habitats. We have learned so much about jungle animals, talking about rain forests and the types of conditions you will find there. We talked about the animals and what food they eat and why they chose to live in the jungle.
We have also looked at patterns and we made hand prints and then used pastels to add the detail to them. The are now on display in class and they look truly amazing.
We have also been thinking about the written clues we could give to people to help them identify the animal. We started our clue off with I spy something beginning with .....

We have really enjoyed learning about numbers and what we can do with them this week. We linked it to Autumn and had a great time learning about adding groups together and how to add 1 more and 1 less to a number.
We started the week off playing conker bingo, when we matched a number and completed our grid we shouted Bingo!
Alfie said - I love Conker Bingo it's so much fun
Indie said - I said my numbers
We then thought about how we could use conkers to make numbers. We had some fantastic ideas and we made many different numbers, here are just a few of them.
Week ending 14th November 2014
What an amazingly busy week we have had in class. We just haven't stopped learning. This week we have been busy talking about and learning about Autumn. We have used lots of new describing language and talked about the changing colours and textures.
We also went outside when it had stopped raining and recorded some missing number sentences using chalks. We can count forwards and backwards and tell grown up what number is missing. We are so very clever.
Week ending 7th November 2014
Hi and welcome back to our blog. We really enjoyed the half term rest and have come back ready and raring to go again. This week we have been learning all about Bonfire Night and we have done some amazing work and we can't wait to show you. Are you ready for this?
We started the week off learning about how Bonfire Night came to be celebrated. We knew about London and the man called Guy Fawkes and we talked about what he wanted to do. We then followed a series of instructions to make our very own sparklers. We read the recipe and then followed the instructions really carefully and we made chocolate finger sparklers. We watched a story about Bonfire Night and ate them at the same time.
We described them as ....
Alfie - they are crunchy and delicious
Jamie - Yummy!
Abbie - they make my lips water
We made our own pictures using twigs, leaves, conkers and more. We designed our picture and thought about what we wanted to make. We have taken lots of photographs and put them in our learning journeys.
Join us again next week to find out what we have been learning about. Have a great weekend.
Week ending 24th October 2014

Jamie - It won't keep them warm we need to use cotton wool
Harvey-Lee - Cotton Wool will make a nice, cosy and warm nest
Week ending 10th October 2014
We have had such a busy week learning all about letters and the alphabet this week.
We started the week off thinking about the initial sounds in our names. We talked about how they look different to the other letters in our name and then got busy finding as many as we could in magazines and newspapers. We also found out lots more information and our detective letter skills are improving all of the time.
Then using cutters we each found the first letter in our names and made our own initial letter sound biscuit, they look and tasted great and when it came to snack time we had great fun finding which one belonged to us.
Also this week, because we are learning about letters, we had alphabet spaghetti. What a fun time we had looking through for a particular letter and then eating it. We enjoyed it.
In PE we thought about balancing and how we can make quoits and balls move between ourselves and our partner. We worked really well with a partner and it’s all about communicating and talking to each other and working together.
We have also been developing our writing skills. We created I Spy captions and people had to guess what we were describing. We had some great ideas and we can really use our Read Write Inc knowledge to help us identify and write the first sound in different words. Have a look at our work it's looking great.
This week has also been parents evening. Thank you to all those parents who came and we look forward to catching up with some of you next week. Don’t forget we need PE kits and reading bags on a Monday and Read Write Inc bags everyday please.

What a very busy week we have had in Reception this week learning all about Anna and her amazing magic glasses that when she looked through them turned everything a different colour!
We also explored colour mixing using brusho and kitchen paper. We had to wet the paper ever so gently and then carefully drop brusho onto it. It was amazing. The colours mixed into one and this is what we thought ....
Nicola said it was like firework night
Alfie said he could see lots of different colours
Kacey said that she had a t-shirt just the same
We have displayed these in our classroom, come inside and take a look

Welcome back to our blog. What an exciting week we have had in Reception this week learning all about the Rainbow Fish. First of all we listened to the story and then thought about as many different words as we could to describe how he looks and moves. We then added these words and created a fish mobile and hung it from the ceiling in class. What a clever idea!
We have also been very busy in Read Write Inc. We have been learning the letter sounds m, a and s and the children love the rhymes that go with the letters for example ...
m - Maisie mountain mountain
a - Round the apple and down the leaf
s - Slither down the snake
Thank you for remembering to bring your Read Write Inc bags everyday as this helps us to look at the work your child has done at home with you and to celebrate it.
Remember that we ask reading books come back to school on a Monday so that we can change them and please remember to sign your child's reading record so we can see what they have enjoyed reading.

What a fantastic end to our first week in Reception. We started the week off by learning all about the story Giraffes Can't Dance. We have been so very busy learning about the author and the illustrator and what their job is all about.
We made posters advertising the dance and we are going to put these on display in our classroom.
We also painted pictures about giraffes and talked about their long necks, long legs and swishy tails.
Towards the end of the week we decided to use salt dough and to creates models about giraffes. Just have a look at some of the amazing 3d models we made.
We have also had a great time exploring our classroom both inside and out!
This is what we think about the outside area so far ....
Harley said "I had a great time with the bats and ball"
Alfie said "I loved rolling the hoops"
Lewis said "All that running round makes me so tired"
