Oak Class Home Learning
Week beginning 6th July 2020
Stories and books are central to learning and encouraging children to talk about books is crucial! This week our story is going to be:
The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
Communication and Language/Literacy Links:
Before you listen to the story or watch the animation – look at the front cover of this story (above) and PREDICT what you think might happen? What can you see?
Snuggle down and listen to the link above!
Have a go at these activities:
Draw the tiger from the story on a piece of paper – copy it from the story as closely as you can. Label each part of the drawing e.g. fur. Can you really impress me by adding some describing words to your labels e.g. stripy fur?
Write a shopping list of things you need to buy for tea this week. Use your phonics to help. What would you add if a tiger was coming for tea?
What happens to the tiger next? Where does he go after visiting Sophie's house? Write a story about another adventure that he has.
Can you record your own retelling of the story? Use your voice to make it sound interesting - are you a good story teller?
For the next few weeks we are going to be completing the daily White Rose Maths lessons. Follow the link below and try and complete them daily if you can:
Remember to encourage your child to use the word BECAUSE when finding an answer or giving a reason.
Keep your fluency skills strong by counting aloud in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Can you say one more and one less than a given number to twenty and beyond?
Other activities you could try at home:
Create a timeline of events from the story. Draw out 3 squares and label them MORNING/AFTERNOON and EVENING. Sketch what happens during different times of the day in the story. What do you notice about the light and dark used in the illustrations, why is it dark at night time? Find out why!
Look closely at Tiger in a Tropical Storm (Surprised!) by Henri Rousseau. I want to see if you can recreate this famous piece of artwork! What materials can you use? Pastels, chalks, paints, tissue papers – have a go.
Have a tea party! Use your imagination and pretend to be somewhere else? Where would an exciting place to have tea be? A building site, Harrods toy shop, the top of a skyscraper?! Where will you go?
Fancy a tiger in your house? Go to Google and type "Tiger". Click on Meet a life sized tiger up close once you have scrolled down. Have a go at photographing the tiger in your house!!! Don't forget to show me!
Can you make up a song that the tiger might sing to say 'Goodbye' and 'Thank you' to Sophie's family?
The tiger wasn't very polite when he ate all of Sophie's food. Can you think of some manners that he should need to remember when he visits someone else's house? Do YOU still have beautiful manners?!
What can you find out about Tigers? Watch this video from BBC Earth - enjoy!
