Did you know that giraffes have 2 hearts? 


There were many different animals that popped up in last weeks book 'Handa's Surprise' This week I would like you to create a fact page about one of those animals. Don't forget to draw an amazing picture of your animal too. 


Questions to get your started: 

What do they eat?

Where do they live?

How tall are they?

How heavy are they?

What are their babies called? 


What interesting fact can you find out about the animal?

I have found this fun game for you to play- it should work on a computer, phone, or tablet.





Understanding the world


Paper Cup Bubble Machine




What you need:

  • A bendy straw
  • A paper cup
  • Duct tape
  • Water
  • Dishwashing liquid or bubble bath


How you do it: This activity requires only the very basics, a bendy straw, a paper cup, duct tape, water and dishwashing liquid or some other foaming liquid (like bubble bath). Place the straw through the cup somewhere near the bottom and use the duct tape to seal the hole.

The soapy water should submerge the straw in the cup – and voila – it’s ready for blowing bubbles!


Remember blow not suck!




Once you have mastered blowing bubbles add a few drops of food colouring or paint to the soapy water. keep blowing and you'll have rainbow bubbles - place paper over the bubbles to create some amazing bubble prints. 




Just for fun!


What you need: cardboard tubes, plastic trays or shallow boxes, tape, large marbles or small balls


Cut your cardboard tubes to shorter lengths. Tape the tubes to the tray, leaving space between the tubes for the ball to roll. We used clear tape and taped through the tubes. You could also tape over the tubes with decorative tape or clear tape.


Children can hold the sides of the tray and move it around to make the ball roll, trying to get the ball to roll through the tubes.


If you use larger trays/boxes and tubes, you can create a game that kids can use with partners. Add table tennis balls instead of small balls to this larger game.


If you want to add more elements to your game, print letters or numbers on the tubes. Challenge kids to roll through specific tubes. If you are using numbers on the tubes, roll a numbered cube and then try to get the ball through that numeral tube and not through in other tubes.
