Morning Marvellous Moles!  How was your long weekend? What did you do to celebrate VE day with your families? We hope you had a fantastic time. Here is the first set of activities for the week, all about ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’. We hope you enjoy having a go at them and remember to keep recording your work in your home learning books and emailing it to us.


Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:


In phonics we are going to continue with the games and activities you are familiar with but start to add some new sounds. Today we are looking at the sound ‘sh’ this sound is made of two letters but when we say it we say just one sound. Make some sound cards as you have been doing with the single sounds but put the ‘sh’ sound on one card together. Use the cards to practice making the following words.

shed, shell, shop, ship

Once you have read them by saying all the sounds and blending them together have a go at writing the words in your home learning books.


Collective Worship

Our Collective Worship value for today is SERVE.

Before you look at our story today see if you can tell your grown-up the three special objects that we put onto the collective worship table each day.

This week we are going to be thinking about a story from the bible called ‘The lost sheep’. You can watch the story using the link below. In the story the shepherd served his flock of sheep by looking after each and every one of them, he even went out to look for the lost sheep when he was hungry, it was dark and he had blisters on his feet. How do we serve those around us? Are there more ways we could find to do this for our families?


PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

Now you have heard the story of ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’ think about how the three bears might have felt when they came home and found out that someone had been in their house? Think about baby bear when he realised all his porridge had gone and his chair was broken.


PD - Physical Development

Miss Thurston has been thinking of some more fun activities this week. Here is todays!

Figure of 8 challenge

Using a ball or teddy, see how many times you can pass the ball through your legs in a figure of 8 pattern in 60 seconds. Let us know how many you manage to do.

CL - Communication and Language

As you read or watch the story of ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’ today think about the part when Goldilocks went into the bear’s house without being invited in. Did she do the right thing? Would you go into someone’s house without being asked? Should she have touched and broken things that don’t really belong to her?

Do you think Goldilocks is a goodie or a baddy, like the fox in last week’s story?


L – Literacy

As we have already mentioned, this week we would be learning about the story of Goldilocks and the three bears if we were in school together. Read this story if you have a copy at home if not you can watch the story using the following link. Do you like this story as much as last weeks?

M - Mathematical Development

In maths this we are going to be looking at numbers all the way up to 20. To help with this we would like you to follow the link below to learn the counting to 20 song. See if you can say the numbers in time to the music to begin with, then when you get really good see if you can add in all the actions at the right times too.



Using a racket and a ball or frying pan and socks, try and hit the ball up as many times as possible without dropping the ball. Make sure you count carefully as you do it only saying one number each time you hit the ball.

EAD – Expressive Arts and Design.

Now you have heard the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, have a go at making a picture of the story. You could do it in anyway you enjoy. You could draw and colour the characters, paint them, junk model or even collage them. Please send us a picture of your creation, we would love to see your ideas.
