Home Learning Activities
Welcome back everybody. I hope you had a lovely half term break and managed to enjoy the lovely weather we have been experiencing. This week's Book of the Week is 'Shark in the Park' by Nick Sharratt. I really like this story because it has a repeating section which your child can learn quite quickly and join in with and because there is a twist at the end of the story which is hidden only in the pictures, not in the text.
I have done a video of me reading the book to you on Tapestry.
If you cannot access Tapestry there is a YouTube version below or you can buy the book here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Shark-Park-Nick-Sharratt/dp/0552549770/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=shark+in+the+park&qid=1590854761&quartzVehicle=705-1878&replacementKeywords=shark+in+the&sr=8-1

I hope you enjoy “Shark in the Park” and all of park and sun safety themed activities and ideas I have suggested for you this week. As always, you don’t just have to stick to these activities and can take the theme in whichever direction would like as well as developing life skills in whichever way you would like! Keep posting what you get up to on Tapestry, as I love to see it all.
As I know you all love stories so much, here is a link to a page on which Mr T is going to be sharing lots of stories with you all which I am sure you will really enjoy. This week he is reading 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' and I have exactly the same book at my house that Mr T is reading from which brings back lots of lovely memories of reading the Beatrix Potter books with my Mummy and Daddy when I was little. In fact, my family always called me 'Jemima Puddle-Duck,' and sometimes still do, which is another Beatrix Potter character!
Please find this week's activities below. There is lots to keep you busy but there is no pressure to do them all. Pick the ones which best suit your child, yourself and the resources you have. I would recommend that you attempt at least one from each section. Where it fits, these activities have been linked to ‘Shark in the Park.”
Stay safe in that sunshine and keep an eye out for sharks!
