Happy Thursday Moles!  How are you getting on this week?

I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and managing to get outside in the fresh air whenever possible.  I love listening to the birds sing when I sit in my garden, and if I sit still enough they will come really close – it’s amazing!

Which activity has been your favourite so far this week? We can’t wait to see your learning books when you bring them back to school!

Here’s a link to get you moving ready for the day ahead.  Singing and dancing always puts me in a great mood! 😊


Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:



Today we are going to play the Symbol Search game again – remind your grown- up how we play it.

Draw a grid and write in different letters of the alphabet to the ones you have covered during the previous weeks. You could also add the sounds sh and ch, the children know that these sounds can come at the beginning or end of words and that they are two letters, but they only make one sound. So if you were reading the word f-i-sh you would need to say the ‘s’ and ‘h’  together to say  ‘sh’. Ask your child to find a sound, write it in the air using their hands then trace over the top on the grid as they say the sound. How many did you know?


As an extension activity you could think of some words which begin or end with the sounds in your grid, how many can you think of?


Collective Worship

Our collective worship value for today is RESPECT.

Remind yourselves what we know about respect and how we show each other respect at school? How do we make sure that we are all good bucket fillers? Jonah loved God, but did not show him respect when he ran away, instead of going to Nineveh. 

What should he have done?  Where was Jonah when he realised that he was wrong, and he needed to make it up to God?

Can you draw a picture of this part of the story?


PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

Choose a game to play where you have to take turns, such as snakes and ladders, kerplunk or even snap.

It can be hard to take turns, but it is important to help things run smoothly!

Remember to do careful counting…and HAVE FUN!



PD - Physical Development

Give this challenge a try today – what better way to get the socks paired up, after they’ve been washed!


CL - Communication and Language

Alongside traditional tales we also love to learn nursery rhymes!

Which nursery rhymes to you know? Baa Baa Black Sheep? Humpty Dumpty? Hickory Dickory Dock?

Choose your favourite nursery rhyme to sing and then draw a picture of it.   Can you pick out the words which rhyme?  You could write these with your picture.

Remember rhyming words sound the same at the end…e.g. dock and clock.



L – Literacy

What did Jack find at the top of the beanstalk?  That’s right, he found a castle!  Imagine that you found a beanstalk outside your bedroom window - what would you like to be at the top of it?

I’m imagining that I could climb to the top of the beanstalk and find a lovely sandy beach, with a calm blue sea and a comfy sun lounger for me to lay on, while I read my book!

Close you eyes and have a think…what could be at the top of your beanstalk?  Draw a picture in you book and write a sentence to go with it.  Don’t forget to start with a capital letter and finish with a full stop.


M - Mathematical Development

This week we’ve been working with numbers to 20.  You’re really good at counting, making and recognising the numbers now, so today we’d like you to practise writing them.

Take special care to get them the right way round, and with 2-digit numbers make sure the digits are in the correct order – this is really important!

Remember we always start numbers at the TOP!
