Hi Moles! Here we are at the end of another week. Here are your learning tasks for today. We really hope you are enjoying them. Remember they are just ideas, and you are sure to have lots of lovely ideas of your own.
We are SO proud of how well you and all your grown-ups have been doing with being at home all the time – we know it’s tricky sometimes!
Thanks for all the lovely emails – keep them coming, we really do LOVE reading them! 😊
Today is the last day of this half term, so we will all be having a rest next week - have a lovely break!
Let’s have a sing and a dance before we start!
Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:
Back to words which have four sounds today! Use these words – chimp, champ, chomp, bench - 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?
It’s our Celebration Collective Worship day today. Who has done something to celebrate this week? Maybe everyone in your house has sone something kind, or helpful? Maybe someone has achieved something new?
Sit together and write a list of all the wonderful things that have happened this week – I bet it will be a long list!
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
We all like it when we receive post! We like it even more when it’s a thank you note for something we have done. Can you think of something that a friend or family member has done for you, that has made you feel happy, then write them a note to say thanks!
PD -Physical Development
We’d like you to create an obstacle course today (outside if possible, so you have plenty of space) using whatever equipment you have available.
Set up a sequence of challenges and time yourself, to see how long it takes you to complete the course. Can you do it quicker if you practise?
CL - Communication and Language
We’re going to play an alliteration game today. Alliteration is when two or more words in a phrase begin with the same sound. e.g. silly sausage, crazy crocodile or big, bad bear. Can you make alliterative names for the people in your family? I’ll go first…in our house we have Dizzy Daddy, Marvellous Mummy, Energetic Ethan and Overjoyed Owen!
L - Literacy
Did you plant a bean or a seed the other day? If you did, then you need to remember what you did. If not, then you need to think about what you would need to do to plant a bean or seed, so that it will grow. We have done this in school.
We’d like you to write some instructions, so that another person would know what to do.
Remember, instructions are like a list of jobs. What do you need to do first? What next? After that?
It’s a good idea to number your instructions.
M - Mathematical Development
Now that you are excellent at counting, recognising, making and writing numbers to 20, we want to see how good you are at working out missing numbers.
Copy these sequences into you book and fill in the gaps.
1, __ , 3 , __ , 5 , 6 , 7 , __ , 9 , __
11 , __ , 13 , __ , 15 , __ , __ , 18 , 19, __
Make some more missing number sequences of your own!
There are lots of missing number resources on Twinkl if you would like to print any.

How about a treasure hunt after you’ve eaten your lunch today?
Draw a map of your house and hide treasure around the house. Can your family members navigate your map to find your hidden treasure? Who can do it the fastest?
Your treasure can be whatever you like!
UW – Understanding the World.
Can you name the parts of a plant?
Draw a picture and label a picture of a plant. Here’s one to get you started.
