Monday 20th April
Hello boys and girls, we hope you have had a lovely relaxing Easter holidays and are keeping safe and well.
This week you are going to be completing activities all about the story ‘Dear Zoo’. To begin with we would like you to watch the video below and discuss with an adult what the story is all about. Here is a list of different activities for you to have a go at over the next week. You can complete them in any order you wish. Have fun!
Dear Zoo Video:
Have a think about the following:
Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops when writing. Also use your phonics and ‘Fred fingers’ to help you sound out.
Please use the following details to access the 'Phonics Play' website.
Expressive Art and Design
What would it be made out of?
How tall/small would it be?
Would it have any windows or doors?
Where would you build it? Would it be somewhere hot or cold?
Understanding the World
Choose your favourite zoo animal or any animal that you have at home. Go outside and find the sun. Using a piece of paper try and draw the shadow that your chosen animal/objects makes.
Talk to your adult about:
Exploring Animals Activity
You can see an animal in your house if you google search an animal name (on iPhone or android) and then press ‘View in 3D’. It opens your camera and soon will show you the animal moving in your room. You can walk around it and take a picture of it with people.

Communication and Language
Guess the animal:
Repeat with the other animals that you have chosen.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
With your family Play I went to the Zoo and saw. Each person says what they saw at the zoo but before saying the new animal they have to remember what the people before them said.
Mum: I wen to the zoo and saw a lion
Dad: I went to the zoo and saw a lion(mums animal) and a giraffe (Dads new idea)
Sister: I went to the zoo and saw a lion (Mums animals), a giraffe (Dads animals) and a snake (There new animal)
See how far you can get before someone forgets the animals in order.
We hope you have lots of fun completing these activities! We would love to see some of your work and especially your smiley faces so if you have any photographs you would like to share with us please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A HUGE thank you to you all. Keep safe and keep smiling!
