Wednesday 20th May 2020

Good morning!  We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s activities, did you plant your seed? Don’t forget to water it and put it somewhere sunny.  

Here are todays learning activities, remember we understand if you don’t get chance to do them all, just choose the ones which suit you best and have some fun taking part in them.


Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:



Today we are going to practise writing a dictated sentence. For this the teacher slowly reads out a sentence one word at a time as the children have a go at recording it. Have a go at this today at home and record it in your books.

The sentence is:

Can I chop the chips for lunch?  


Don’t forget your capital letter, finger spaces and full stop! You are brilliant at reminding us to do these in class.



Collective Worship


Our collective worship value for today is ASPIRE.

In our story ‘Jonah and the Whale’ the people of Nineveh aspired to live better lives, after Jonah spoke to them of God’s teachings and the importance of being kind and good. 

Talk to your grown-up about what you aspire to be better at? Grown-ups, what do you aspire to be better at?  You may need to start this conversation off, as it can be a bit tricky for our little ones to think this way to begin with!




PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

Today we would like you to see how many people you can pass a smile to. It could be someone in your home or a stranger who you might pass as you go on your daily exercise. I think you will be surprised how many people will smile back to you! Let’s brighten everybody’s day!





PD - Physical Development


As part of our VE day work we set you the challenge of learning how to skip. This week we would like you to have another go. If you found it tricky last time, think about the work we have done on perseverance in school, and not giving up even when things get hard. I will have a go at this today too! I used to love skipping when I was a little girl, but I haven’t done it for a very long time.

See if you can skip to this rhyme! How many did she break?


CL - Communication and Language

When we are in school, one of your favourite activities is singing and making music with the instruments. You especially enjoy this with Miss Scrivens each Wednesday afternoon. Today we would like you to make your own simple instruments to play along to your favourite songs. Here are some ideas.

L - Literacy

When we learnt about the story of the Gingerbread man we asked you to make a story map of his journey. Some of you emailed them into school for us to see and they were amazing! See if you can do one for Jack and the beanstalk, what does he take to market? What grows in his garden and what does he take from the giant?

M - Mathematical Development

Today you will need your grown-up to play our maths game. You are going to be a detective and spot their mistakes. Ask them to count to 20 but make some mistakes, they could miss a numbers out, say the same number twice or say the numbers in the wrong order. Every time you hear them make a mistake stop them and tell them what they did wrong.

Choose 3 ten minute shake up games to get your 30 minutes exercise today.

Let us know which ones you decided to do.


UW- Understanding the world

Now you are all gardeners, planting seeds of your own, can you draw some pictures to show us the order you had to do things? Did you put the compost or the seed in the pot first? When did you water the seed? Don’t worry too much about the writing now, you will be doing that later in the week. Your pictures will help you with that.

If you would prefer to print some pictures to order, please use the link below.
