Morning Marvellous Moles!  How was your weekend? We hope you managed to do some lovely things at home with your families. Here is our first set of activities for the week, all about ‘The Rainbow Fish’. We hope you enjoy having a go at them and remember to keep recording activities in your home learning books and emailing your super work to us.


Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:



This week we will be looking at words with the sound ‘wh’ we say this is two letters but one sound and record them together on our sound cards.

Use these words – whip, when and whisk- 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.   Can you put any of the words into a sentence? Have a go at writing a sentence in your book.

 Extra challenge - Can you use the letters to build any different words?



Collective Worship

Our Collective Worship value for today is Aspire.


I would like you to watch this video of Derek Redmond.


In the bible it says “We have all these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means. So, we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit.”


Despite everything Derek Redmond overcame his challenges and aspired to finish his race. I would like you to draw a picture of something you have found a challenge over the past few weeks. Once you have finished your picture think about ways to help you overcome this challenge and write them all around the picture. Find somewhere safe to keep your piece of paper. Every time you face this challenge over the next few weeks I want you to get the piece of paper and remind yourself that you CAN overcome the challenge you are facing.






PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development


Once you have read/watched the story of the Rainbow Fish, have a think about how he behaved at the start of the story. Was he right to not share his scales with the other fish? Have you ever had something you didn’t want to share before? Sharing can be tricky at times and it can be hard to let go of something that is precious to you. Think of a time when you shared something special to you.

PD - Physical Development

Look at the picture below taken from the Rainbow Fish and answer the following questions.

See the source image

  1. What might the fish be asking the Rainbow Fish?
  2. Where are the fish?
  3. What might the Rainbow Fish be thinking?
  4. How is the Rainbow Fish different to the other fish?

Can you think of any questions of your own? Why not email them to us and we will see if we can answer them!




L – Literacy

If we were at school, we would be sharing the story of ‘The Rainbow Fish’ with you this week.  If you have your own copy please read it together, if not, watch the story on the following link to help you find out what happens in the story.


M - Mathematical Development

Last week in maths we looked at doubling, and from looking at all of your fantastic work we can see that you are getting really good at it! This week we are going to think about the opposite of doubling -  halving! Have you ever had to share a cake or biscuit with a friend before? How many pieces did you get each?

Today we would like you to practise this. You could use toys, counters or even sweets. Start with an amount by counting them out carefully e.g. 6. Now carefully share them with someone in your family. How many did you get each? You could say that you have half each! Now try again with a different amount.

(Please give the children numbers which can be halved equally to start with, we will be looking at what happens when you can’t half a number equally later in the week)



Choose one of your favourite routines from Just Dance (lots can be found on Youtube) and get your groove on! If you prefer just dance to some of your favourite songs. We would love to see some videos of your dancing.



EAD – Expressive Arts and Design


 As the sun has been out so much recently, why not try creating your own Rainbow Fish sun catcher to put in your window at home. Cut out the shape of a fish out of paper or card, then ask a grown-up to help you carefully cut out his tummy. Stick pieces of thin paper, such as tissue paper or sweet wrappers in the middle of his tummy. You will be able to see all of the beautiful colours as the sun shines through.
