Reception children are so busy

Elmhurst School for Boys

1st October 2015 | Early Years

This week the children have been learning the sounds, actions and formation for ‘c’ and ‘k’. The boys were able to dress up in Spanish clothing and do some Spanish Flamenco dancing whilst playing castanets and saying the sound c,k (both letters have the same sound) THEY HAD SO MUCH FUN!!

The children practiced the formation of ‘c’ by saying, “curl around the caterpillar” and for ‘k’ they said “down the kangaroo’s body, over his tail and kick out for his leg”

We also played a game of musical sounds. The boys danced to a song and when the music stopped they had to find a sound and shout it out. This helped the boys to reflect on their prior knowledge of previously learnt sounds and practice the new sounds learnt this week.

In topic we are learning about our 5 senses. This week we have focused on our sense of sight. I wonder how many things you can spot on your journey home from school using your sense of sight. You also use your sense of hearing to see how many different things you can hear in your garden. Don’t forget to close your eyes so that you are only using your sense of hearing.

To support your son’s learning at home, you may review the formation and sounds of all 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.

Next week the children will be learning ‘h’ and ‘r’.

In Maths they will be learning about space (big and small).
