Now listen to the story with your grown up. These questions are for you to talk about with your grown up.
Before you start reading the book
When you have finished the book
Read The Zoo Vet again.
Which is your favourite part of the story? Talk about it with your grown up.
Can you write a sentence about your favourite part of the story? Remember to say your sentence first and clap the words to remember them. Make sure you use your phonics mats to write the sounds you can hear!
Adults – help your child to keep their sentence short (4 or 5 words) and use the Tips for writing to help you.
Challenge! Can you write 2 sentences? Make sure you use the blue side of your sound mat to spell digraphs.
Watch the vet video again.
Pretend you are a vet and use your teddies and toys to be the different zoo animals. It is best if a grown up or older child can help you play the game so that you do lots of talking and use the words in our vocabulary list.
Use the patient’s record document to write down what is wrong with the animal and how you are going to make it better. You can make your own patient record on a piece of paper if you don’t want to print this out.
REMEMBER TO USE YOUR PHONICS MAT TO HELP YOU!
Remember to keep practising your handwriting!
