Click below to listen to a song about our Handa's Surprise story.
Can you join in?
Could you make up a song about Handa's fruit?
Think about the words that are used to tell you about the fruit...
soft, yell-ow, ba-na-na
sweet, smell-ing gua-va
round, jui-cy or-ange
ripe, red man-go
Each of these phrases has it's own little rhythm pattern.
Can you repeat the words in a pattern?
Try clapping, tapping your knees, or stamping as you say the words.
Can you join some of the phrases together to make a little song?
Watch this video too to see how the grown-ups do it!! I'm sure you will be much better
Can you remember the names of the animals in the 'Handa's Surprise' story?
That's right... there was an elephant, and a giraffe, and a monkey...can you remember any more?
I thought you might like to have a go at drawing some of the animals- maybe in your sketchpad that Santa brought you for Christmas?
Click on the animal picture below to watch a video showing you how to draw it- you have to listen very carefully and watch what the artist is doing. Maybe your grown-ups could try with you!
Remember to send us a photograph of your amazing creations
