Hello again Moles! We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s activities, how did your masks turn out? Don’t forget to send us a picture.
Here are some more ideas to keep you busy.
Remember, don’t worry if you don’t get chance to do them all choose the ones which best fit in with your daily routine.
Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:
In phonics we have been using our knowledge and skills to read sentences.
Read the following sentence and then answer the question below.
The twin frogs, Stan and Steff, swam in the sink.
Ask your child the following question to check their understanding:
Where did the frogs swim?
Our collective worship value for today is ASPIRE.
This week we are thinking about the story of Noah’s Ark, today we are going to watch the story again using the link from Monday. Then your task is to think about something you aspire to do or get finished, just like Noah aspired to finish building his ark and get the animals on board before the rain came. Is your idea something that you can do at home now or something that you can do when we are back at school? Share your ideas with a grown up, draw them or write them down.
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
Play a turn taking game today, this game will also get your brains working as you will have to do some careful thinking!
Kim’s game- place a selection of everyday household items on a table or tray and look together at what there is. Now cover them over with a towel or cloth. While your child is not looking take one of the items away and hide it behind your back. Now remove the cloth and see if they can remember what is missing. Now swap roles. Who has the best memory?
PD - Physical Development
Miss Thurston is keeping us very busy this week! She has sent a really fun activity for today, balloon tennis. This game could be played in the house or outside and is great for practising hand and eye co-ordination. Use the resources in the pictures if you have them, if not use anything you do have at home, which would still work. Most importantly have fun, we can’t wait to play this with you when you come back.
CL - Communication and Language
As you do your daily outdoor exercise for the day use this opportunity to go on a listening walk. What can you hear? Can you hear the birds singing or the bees buzzing? Does it seem quieter than usual with less cars driving by? When you return home write a list or draw a picture of some of the things you heard.
L - Literacy
Remind yourself of our story of the week ‘The three little pigs’ by either reading it or watching it again. (The link is on yesterday’s blog.)
Now think about what the characters say in the story e.g. the wolf, ‘I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down!’
Or the pig’s ‘Not by the hairs on my chinny chin chin.’
Have a go at writing this in a speech bubble in your books.
Remember to say the sound write the word!
M - Mathematical Development
To warm your brains up play the ‘You count, I count’ game, you learnt yesterday, if you are getting really good try counting back from 20.
One of our Moles managed to get to 59 with their grown-up yesterday!
Today we are going to continue with finding out how an amount changes when something is added to it. Use either toy cars or farm animals and make them a carpark or field. Add simple addition sums for your child to answer using the toys.
Ask your child to count 2 cars/animals then add the other two, what is the new total?
Record it in your books!
Can your grown-up remember our Lunchtime Prayer? Test them and see if they can remember it!
After you’ve eaten lunch and tidied up, have a go on the chalk activity course you made yesterday, can you move in lots of different ways?
UW – Understanding the World.
Time to investigate! Have a think about the three houses that the little pigs built, what three materials did they use? Go on a hunt around your house and garden to see if you have anything built from straw, sticks (wood) or bricks, what are they? Now think about which of the houses you would rather live in and why, which would keep you the safest? Write down your answer and draw us a picture in your home learning books.
