The book we are looking at this week is "Handa's Surprise" by Eileen Browne. You can watch and listen to the story here

Monday - Thoughts 

Watch and listen to the story together. Create a grid just like the one below and write down your thoughts in each box. Try to use 'because' to explain your thoughts. Miss Thompson has put some examples in the boxes to help you. Upload a photo of your work onto Class Dojo.



Tuesday - Matching Animals

We would like you to draw pictures of the animals and the fruit in the story. Can you match the animal to the fruit it takes from Handa's basket? There are descriptions of the fruit below to help you. We would also like you to have a go at using the pictures to help you retell the story to your grown up! Upload a picture of your drawings onto Class Dojo

Wednesday - Vocabulary


Explore the descriptions of the fruit, eg ripe red mango.

Which have you eaten? Which is your favourite fruit?

Write a simple noun phrases (describing an object) to describe your favourite fruit

e.g.The crunchy apple.

Develop this further by writing pairs of adjectives with a comma,

eg The sweet, shiny pepper.

Make a game! Write descriptions of your favourite fruit and draw pictures. Can you guess the fruit by the description?


Thursday - Practice and Play


Can you plan a party?  Write a list of all your friends and families names and a list of all the foods for the party.  Talk about the questions below and write party invitations. Include what the party is for, the time, date and place. Remember to use capital letters for names and places.
