Handa's Surprise

Now you have listened to the story, talk about it with your grown-ups.

Can you answer these questions about the story?

Where do you think Handa lives?

What is the weather like in this place?

Where was Handa going?

How many types of fruit did Handa put in the basket?

Can you remember what the fruits were called?

How does Handa carry the basket?

What animals and birds do you see in the story? Do you know their names?

What happens to the fruit?

Do you think Handa knows what is happening? Why not?

How do the tangerines get into the basket?

Why is Handa surprised?

Did you enjoy this story?

What is your favourite part?

Writing/Mark-Making

What types of fruit do you like to eat?

Which types of fruit would you have chosen to put in your basket?

 

Can you have a go at drawing a basket full of your favourite types of fruit.

Then try to label each of the fruits you have drawn. Think carefully about the sound you can hear at the beginning of each word...a for apple, b for banana etc...can you try to write this letter shape?

Another idea is to have a go at making a fruit shopping list for the next time your grown-ups go shopping.

Think about what fruits you would like your grown-ups to buy for you. 

Then draw a picture of each type of fruit and have a go at writing it's name next to it.
