It would be amazing if you could dress up at home, if you do please send me any pictures!
Cherry Class will be using the story 'Giraffes Can't Dance' for World Book Day! We will be enjoying the story through lots of activities I have planned. We will still be having our 9.15, 10.30 and 1.00pm lessons, but with a twist!
Have a listen to the story below!
The story 'Giraffes Can't Dance' is full of rhyming words, these are words that have the same sound at the end e.g. cat/mat/bat, rug/bug, wall/tall/call. I would love us to write some rhymes of our own in the form of a short what am I? poem about giraffes.
Words you may use include:
Rhymes can be difficult for the children to think of, therefore it may be helpful to give a range of rhyming words they can choose from.
My neck is long
My legs are strong
I eat from a tree
This book is about me
What am I?
At the end of the story all the animals come together to enjoy the Jungle Dance! My next challenge is for you to create a pop-up scene from the setting - could you cut out and colour (draw) some animals that attended? Have a look at the video of me creating my own below.
I will be delivering a PSHE lesson about how the words from the other animals hurt Gerald the Giraffe. We will be discussing the difference between laughing at someone and with someone, as well as the impact of our words.
I would love the children to create their own Jungle Dance to a music genre of your choice. You can pick any song, I can't wait to see your amazing choreography!
