We hope you enjoyed starting our Wild animal topic with our story 'Walking in the Jungle'.
To link with this theme your task today is to look at the Zoo webcam from the link below and find out some more information about the animals in our story.
Communication and Language Activity:
Can you tell someone else in your house or phone a relative to tell them the information you have researched.
What did you find out about the tiger?
Tell them an elephant fact.
What did you find out about crocodiles?
Using the sentence starter 'I can see...' tell me what you saw on the webcam in the zoo. You can write it and photograph it then email it or you can type it our yourself, thinking of the sounds you need to write the words. We can't wait to see what you found out!
Our focus sounds today are:
sh and ch
You can watch 'Geraldine' explore these sounds by following the links below:
What things in your house have those sounds in them? Can you write a list of sh/ch words? How many can you think of? Can you think of 9 different words?
Play noughts and crosses using the words from the grid, for each word you read you can add a nought or cross, who will make it in a line of 3 first?
