Activities at home
Summer 2, Week 1- We are starting to learn all about Animals!
This week we are learning all about Pets! Listen to this story, The Great Pet Sale.
Talk about the story – which pet would you have picked from the pet shop?
Help your grown-ups make a shopping list for next time you go to the supermarket – copy key words and draw pictures. Here is a video with some information on mark making as well.
Do you have a pet at home? Draw a picture of your pet. If you don’t have a pet, draw a picture of a pet that you would like to have.
Try the matching rhyming pairs game attached below.
Make your own price tags using the template and form numbers 1-10 on the tags. You could also use post- it notes of make your own with paper. See the video below in the creative section which shows a shop with the price tags added to different items in the shop.
Practise counting using pennies – can you match the correct amount of pennies to your price tags? This is also shown in the video below!
Attached is a 'count the pets' sheet- how many pets are there in each group? if you do not have access to a printer, why don't you draw your own groups of pets and write the number to go with the amount of pets in the set.
Make a role-play supermarket and act out the roles of shopkeeper and customer with your family members. Don’t forget to count out the right amount of money and label your items with your price tags!
Song of the week! Don't forget to record your child singing and upload it to tapestry or send us a video for the website!
Talk with your grown-ups about what you think pets need. If you have a pet, what do you do to look after it?
Watch this video that shows how to look after a pet. What did you learn about what pets need?
There are also some pet pictures attached below to have a look at. Can you talk about the different features of each pet? What find of fur do they have? How many legs? Where do they live? What do they like to eat?
