Literacy: The tiger who came to tea
This week we are reading the story of 'The tiger who came to tea.' Watch this story retell here:
We are familiarising ourselves with the story and starting to retell the story using language from the story.
L.I - To retell events from a story
Activity 1 - We received a letter from the zoo keeper telling us how poorly his tiger was. Can you write a list of the things that the tiger ate? You could draw and label the different foods.
Activity 2 - You are Sophie and your mummy/daddy is the zoo keeper. Can you have a conversation telling the zoo keeper why the tiger is feeling so poorly. The zoo keeper could ask you lots of questions, such as 'When did the tiger come toy our house? What did the tiger do? Were you surprised? What did the tiger eat?
Activity 3 - Can you retell the story? Use the word bank below to help you. You could orally retell the story or write some sentences.
In Maths we are thinking about counting forwards and counting backwards. Can you write your numbers from 0-20? Ask the person you live with to cut them up and hide the individual cards around the room. Can you find all of the cards and order them from 0-20? Then can you order them from 20 - 0?
This week in Geography we are thinking about where we live. We are learning about the differences between a village, town and city. This video explains the differences:
We live in Treeton. This is a village. Do we have a church? School? Park? Houses? Could you draw the things that belong in your village?
