Morning Marvellous Moles!  How was your weekend? What did you get up to with your families? Did you show them how to play any of the PE games you made last week? As you know, if we were in school this week we would be having a special bank holiday on Friday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE day. This week we will be finding out about this special day.

Please send your pictures in to let us know how you are celebrating at home.

Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:



 Some more words which have four sounds today!  Use these words – stuff, prim, tint and trill - to play games with your child e.g. what sounds can you hear? Make letter cards and put them in the right order or have a go at writing them in your books. If you aren’t sure what some of the words mean see if you can find out. Can you put any of the words into a sentence? Have a go at writing a sentence in your book.

 Challenge - Can you think of any words which rhyme with our words of the day?


Collective Worship



Our Collective Worship value for today is SERVE.

VE Day 75 | Remembrance Events | Royal British LegionThis week we are going to think about VE Day. This Friday it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day stands for Victory in Europe. This is a celebration of when the Allies formally accepted Germany’s surrender, meaning they defeated Germany in the Second World War. There is a PowerPoint on the class pages of the school website entitled ‘VE Day Collective Worship PowerPoint’. Look through the PowerPoint to gain a better understanding of VE Day. Can you then use your books to write down a list of different people who served us during the war?





PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

To celebrate VE day many people took to the streets and had big street parties with their families and friends. Can you set up a tea party for your teddies today? You could make them invitations, place settings and playdough foods.

PD - Physical Development


Using some old plastic bottles out of your recycling, see if you can use them to make a game of skittles. You could decorate them with any craft resources you have at home. Remember to count carefully how many are knocked down. Who will be the champion in your house?



CL - Communication and Language

Have a look at this old photograph of people celebrating VE day in 1945.

What might they be doing?

What is the little boy holding in his hand?

Why is the picture in black and white?

Where might they be?

If you have a family member who was alive at this time, ask if you can ring them to try and find out more about what it was like.



L – Literacy

VE Day – Victory in Europe Day

VE Day is a special day to mark the end of the Second World War. Below we have attached a link to simple fact sheet so you can find out a little more. Read it with your grown-up and see if you can make your own fact file about VE Day.



M - Mathematical Development

Today we would like you to watch an episode of Number Blocks to help with your maths. During this episode number 10 works with lots of smaller numbers to make bigger ones. It is really important that the children learn that teen numbers are made by adding 10 to another number rather than 1 e.g. 11 is 10 and 1 and not 1 and 1 as children can sometimes think. After watching the episode see if your child can tell you what number needs to work with 10 to make numbers to 15.

Can you draw these Number Blocks in your book?




In preparation for your VE Day celebration on Friday can you make some decorations to put on your party table?



EAD – Expressive Arts and Design.

75 years ago, the types of toys children would have played with would be very different to the toys you have in your home now. What is your favourite toy? Do you think that children 75 years ago would have had that as their favourite toy? Today we are going to ask you to make a toy that children would have had in the past. You will need, a ball of paper, some string, a cup and some tape. Have a go making a cup and ball game, how many times can you catch it?
