Morning Moles!  How are you getting on this week?

 We still miss you, it seems like such a long time since we saw you all and can’t wait until it is safe and you can come back. In the meanwhile we will keep giving you ideas for things to do while you are staying safe at home.

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.


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 ll, ss, and ff, the children know that these sounds usually come at the end of words and that they are two letters but they only make one sound. So if you were reading the word g-r-a-ss you would only need to say the ‘ss’ once. Ask your child to find a letter, 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 LEARN.

Follow the link that we used on Monday to remind yourself of the story of Noah and the Ark. Talk to your grown-ups about what you think that Noah learnt about making and keeping promises? What do you think that Noah’s children learnt from him?            





PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

Mood monsters! In school we have been working very hard to help the children to understand the various different feelings and emotions they experience. We have been helping them to learn how to name each one so when they do experience it they are more able to tell someone how they feel to get support. We have been looking at some activities on Twinkl, (which is still free at the moment) all about mood monsters to help us with this. Have a look at the posters in the link below and talk about each one.  (Sorry it’s such a long link!)



PD - Physical Development

Our last activity from Miss Thurston for this week!

Add to your collection of homemade games by making a cardboard box golf set!




CL - Communication and Language

Can you remember the listening walk you did earlier in the week and all the amazing things that you heard? This time ask your grown-ups if you can go on another walk just before bed time. Can you hear different things to what you heard in the day? Can you hear any owls or other nocturnal creatures? If you go out around 8pm tonight you might hear some extra special sounds! (Clap for NHS)


L – Literacy

Thinking about the pigs in our story of the week make a pig fact page. You could include, where they live, what they eat, what their babies are called and remember to draw picture to go with your facts.

M - Mathematical Development

As you are probably getting very good at looking at how an amount changes when you add to it, we are now going to look at what happens when something is taken away. Play the game from Monday where you count out an amount of objects (0-9) then decide how many you are going to take away, count to check your answer when you have done it.

You could practise writing this in your book as a subtraction sum e.g.

After you’ve eaten lunch and helped to clean up why not relax with your favourite Cosmic Kids Yoga video on YouTube? Can you remember all of the moves? Don’t forget to ask your grow-up to join in!



EAD – Expressive Arts and Design.

Think about the ‘baddie’ in our story this week, the Big Bad Wolf. Have a go at drawing him and turning it into a wanted poster. You could include a description of how he looks and why he needs to be caught. Don’t forget to add the reward!
