Latest news from Reception

Elmhurst School for Boys

17th November 2014

Reception started the second half of term, learning about weight. They estimated using their hands to see if an object was heavier or lighter than another object. Then the boys used weighing scales to see if they were correct. Reception have also been focusing on what is one and two more than a given number.

They also learned the sounds, actions and formation for ‘g’ and ‘o’, and are learning about people who help us at home.

At home, to support your son’s learning, you may review the formation and sound of all the letters we have learned so far. Pupils are encouraged to practice writing for real purposes - for example, writing a shopping list. Your son could also work at independently sounding out three and four letter words. Additionally, you may wish to compare the weight of different objects around the house and talk about which is heavier and lighter.

Last week the boys learned additional letters - “u” and “l” and in Maths, they learned about other solid shapes, focusing on cylinders.
