Wednesday 13th May 2020

Good morning!  We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s activities. Did you find out where different foods come from? How did your porridge turn out?

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:



For phonics today we would like you to have a go at reading lots of words with the ‘sh’ sound. Follow the link to find the ‘speed read’ activity. How many of the words will you be able to read? Remember to say the sounds and read the words.


Collective Worship

Our Collective Worship value for today is RESPECT.

Before you start our activity for the day, relating to the lost sheep, think about the special collective worships we have in school on a Wednesday. Can you remember any of the names of our special church visitors who come to school to share stories from the bible with us?

The story of the lost sheep teaches us that it doesn’t matter who we are, God loves us all the same and we are all as important as each other. God has respect and love for us all. Today we would like you to think of ways in which you can show respect for those around you at home.

PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development

During our story, Goldilocks did some unkind things to the bears such as go into their house without being invited, eat their breakfast, break their chairs and sleep in their beds. What could she do to say sorry to the bears and make it up to them? What do you do when you do something wrong and want to say sorry to make someone feel better?




PD - Physical Development

Miss Thurston is going to get your heart pumping fast, make your faces go red and get you sweaty today! Look for all of these things happening as you take part in her work out challenge.

 (Repeat 5 times and have 30 seconds rest between each activity)

CL - Communication and Language

Today we are going to think about your favourite part of the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Why is this your favourite part? Remember in school when you give us an answer, we often ask you to add the word because to encourage you to tell us the reason why. See if you can do this today with you grown-ups.



L - Literacy

Today in literacy we would like you to think about story settings. Last week our story of The Gingerbread Man, began in the little old lady’s kitchen and ended at the river, where he was eaten!

Where is the story of Goldilocks set?

Where was the Three Bear’s cottage?

Where was Goldilocks when she ate the porridge?

Have a go at drawing the Three Bear’s cottage in its setting, what might you see around it?

The following link will help you to download the CBeebies story time app to give you more ideas and another version of our story.



M - Mathematical Development

Now you are getting really good with numbers to 20, have a go at this game on a laptop or tablet. You have to listen carefully to the number then send the helicopter off to the rescue. How many will you get right? In the settings choose numbers to 20 and direct number.

After you’ve eaten lunch and tidied up choose a favourite story and ask a grown-up to read it with you. You could even find an unusual place to share a story today such as make a den to read in, read under or on a trampoline or anywhere else in your house, which would be fun.

EAD- expressive arts and design.

When you have your breakfast or lunch do you have a special bowl or plate you like to eat it from? It might have one of your favourite characters on it. When I was a little girl my favourite was decorated with a little fairy called Victoria plum, as my Mum thought I looked like her! 

Today we would like you to design a porridge bowl for one of the bears. You could use the patterns we learnt about a couple of weeks ago or draw a picture, add it to your learning books and tell us which bear it is for.
