Reception Learn about the Letters ‘m’ and ‘d’

Elmhurst School for Boys

17th October 2014

This week in Reception, the children have been learning the sounds, action and formation for ‘m’ and ‘d’.

For the sound ‘m’ the boys drew a picture of their favourite yummy food whilst making the mmmm sound and rubbing their tummies. This made them very hungry indeed!
The boys practiced the formation of the letter ‘m’ by saying, “down Maisy and over the mountain”.

They also learned about the ‘d’ sound. The boys practiced the formation for ‘d’ on a piece of paper and said, “round the dinosaur’s bottom, up his tall neck and down to his feet”. They loved our drumming and dancing session whilst saying the ‘d’ sound.

We also enjoyed our trip to Surrey Street Market, where the boys looked at lots of different fruit and veg from different countries. They then chose and bought some fruit and vegetables to try in our sense of taste lesson. The boys also used their Maths skills to create a pattern when making their fruit kebabs. They then had a fun time eating them all, mmmmm!

At home, to support your son’s learning, you may review the formation and sound of all the letters we have learned so far, using the flashcards that are sent home each week. Once your son is confident with these sounds, you may use the sound flash cards to make different words.

After half term, the boys will be learning “g” and “o”.

In Maths they will be learning about flat and solid shapes, and weight.
