Here is Miss Purcell reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea and explaining the home learning opportunities for this week. This week’s maths learning is halving and sharing, so don’t forget to check out the maths section of the home learning area where I teach Tiger Who Came to Tea how to share out the food equally into two equal parts.

How to Make a Lift the Flap Book

Can you make a lift the flap book based on ‘How to Hide a Lion’? The lion could be hiding under different things. You could write ‘I would hide a lion under a...’. Have fun!

The Big Reveal!

Find out who was knocking at Miss Purcell’s door! You could turn this into a writing opportunity by asking your child to write down where they would hide a lion! You could make a lift the flap book with a lion hiding under different things!

Here is Miss Purcell demonstrating how to form the letters s, a, t, p, i and n using our cursive letter formation. You should all have a rainbow book in your home learning pack. If you do not have your home learning pack then just practise on some paper using pens, pencils, paints etc! Or you could use your finger to draw the letters in the air, on your hand, or on someone’s back! Maybe you could get a scarf or piece of material and dance practise them in the air, just like when we do squiggle as you wiggle! Have fun.

Read ‘Naughty Bus’ with Miss Purcell!

If you enjoyed the story Naughty Bus then here are some activity ideas for you to try at home based on the book. I have also uploaded a double decker doubling game to the maths area on our home learning page for you to print and play.

Naughty Bus Writing Challenge

Your writing challenge based around Naughty Bus is to make your own story influenced by this one. Take a Naughty Bus, or Naughty Car, or Naughty Aeroplane on adventures around your house. Take photographs, just like the pictures in the book are like photographs. You can then choose to write your own mini book, write sentences in your writing challenge book or type some sentences onto Tapestry next to your pictures about what happened on the adventures. Have fun!
