Literacy

Children's book read aloud. 'THE STORM WHALE'

Monday

Watch the video of the story.

 

He told stories about life on the island. The whale was an excellent listener.

 

What stories might Noi have told the whale? Share ideas and create storymaps (pictures to tell a story) to help you to tell your island story orally to the whale. You could have a go at writing your story. Make a zigzag book to share with your family. If your story is too long for you to write, ask an adult to write the words and you could illustrate your book.

Tuesday

Discuss what happened in the whole story. Remind the children of the story of The Bog Baby. How is this story similar? What have we found out about keeping wild animals?

 

Draw a picture and write a sentence about how wild animals should be looked after.
