Questions to discuss-

What do you notice about the sounds in the story? (It is a rhyming story)

Can you come up with a different animal and rhyming object for them to sit on (that has not been included in the story)?

Story link activities to select throughout the week

Literacy

  1. Make a story map of the key events in the story Lost and Found. We practice creating these lots in class.

  1. Sometimes, when people lose a pet, they put up posters to help find them again. Can you make a ‘lost’ poster for the Penguin in Lost and Found. Don’t forget to add lots of details describing the penguin, so that the reader knows what to look out for. What does the penguin look like? What colour is it? How big is it?
  2. The story doesn’t have any speech in it. Ask your grown up to draw out a speech bubble and pretend you are the boy from the story (perhaps you could draw him next to the speech bubble) Have a go at writing what you think he might have said when he first met the penguin.

A writing reminder

How did your child find the writing activity? Remember its okay for things to be spelt phonetically. It is important that your child grows into an independent learner. Encouraging your child to write the words as they sound rather than always spelling them correctly. We encourage the children to use their own skills, rather than copying an adult.

Understanding the World

Spend some time watching the penguins at Edinburgh Zoo:

https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/penguin-cam/

What do you notice about them?

How do they move? (perhaps you can walk like a penguin too!)

Do they like to be alone or in groups?

Do they live on land, in the water, or both?

These penguins are in a zoo. Where can we find penguins in the wild? Ask an adult to help you find this information in a book or by using the internet.

Expressive Arts and Design

  1. Build a boat for your toys! You could use any construction toys you have at home (such as lego, duplo) natural or found objects outside, or recycled food packaging. Perhaps you could tell a story about an adventure your toys go on in their brand new boat!
  2. Make a ‘Paper Roll Penguin’ You could follow this guide or, if you do not have coloured paper, create your own version using plain paper, the paper roll and colouring pens or pencils!
