Dear Zoo (animals)

Dear Zoo



  • Provide your child with blankets and sheets to make an animal den.
  • Act out being an animal in the den. 
  • Look out for dens built by other people or good places to build a den if you go for a walk. 
  • Talk to your child about how the animals make their homes.


Make a den



We think Angus likes this den:


Prepositions (in, on, under, next to, in front of, between)


  • Can your child say where teddy is? Ask them to use prepositions (where  words).
  • When playing with your child, encourage them to put a toy in, on, under, next to, in front of, between other items.
  • Ask your children to tell you where to put something is using prepositions (in, on, under, next to, in front of, between).
  • Get your child to watch this prepositions video.

Looking after your pets


If you have a pet at home, encourage your child to take part in their daily care. They could help feed, groom and clean up after your pet. 


Can they describe Mrs Price's pets? Do they have any questions about pets?

Looking after Mrs Price's pets

Pets can’t look after themselves and need our loving care. They need to be fed and exercised. Have a look and see some of the things I do to care for my pets.

Dogs need lots of exercise because it stops them from getting fat or getting bored. Plus they can’t use a toilet like you do.
Have a look and see what Cyd and Angus get up to on their walk. Can you spot the bag of poo which needs to go in the bin. Why does the poo have to go in the bin?
