Have you ever been given a surprise? What was it and what was it for? Now you are going to listen to a story about a little girl who surprises her friend. Watch and enjoy the story, "Handa’s Surprise" by Eileen Browne.

Listen and watch again. How many delicious fruits did Handa put into the basket? Who stole the first fruit? Who stole the spiky-leaved pineapple? Why was Handa surprised when she gave the basket to Akeyo? How did the tangerines get into the basket? Why was Akeyo so happy with her surprise? Draw or paint a big colourful picture of all the fruits from the story. Label the fruits using words or sentences..

Friday 5th June 2020

Literacy

Can you name some fruits that do not appear in "Handa’s Surprise?" These could be from the fruit skewer recipe. Use words to describe the fruit, e.g. juicy, round. Watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p011smwc

to learn about some African animals. Could you use this information to write a new page for the story? Rehearse the sentence out loud before attempting to write it independently, e.g. The rhino took the round green melon from the basket. You could extend this by folding a piece of paper into a small book to write your own, improved version of the story.

Maths

Can you fill Handa's basket with 10 fruits? You can use 2 oranges, 4 bananas, 6 apples or 8 strawberries. This fruit must stay in the groups.

 

**Challenge: Now how could you make you 20?

Topic

Can you make a front cover for your new Handa story? Maybe you could draw and collage the fruit and animal you used in your story.
