Literacy/Communication & Language – Story Telling and Safari Adventure


Recap the story and talk about the different animals we were introduced to. Now introduce your child to the idea that they are going to be on safari and that we’re going to try to spot different animals.

Look together at the pages at the end of the book. Can they name any of the animals shown here?

Explain that some of the animals from the book are hidden around the room. Encourage your child to look around to find an animal, then they should tick off the animal they have found on Spotter’s sheet. (Below are the picture cards for hiding and the spotters sheet). When the children find the animal discuss what you know about the animal from the story ‘The Ugly Five’.
