It has been fantastic to see how you are engaging with some of the ideas on the class web page. Remember these are ideas which you can extend, adapt or change keeping the interests and ability of your child in mind.
This weeks Out and About topic starts with the storybook 'Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain' by Verna Aardema. In this traditional tale, discovered in Kenya, a young herd boy Ki-pat must find a way to end the dreadful drought that has come to the beautiful Kapiti Plain and save the animals that live there. Authored by Verna Aardema, Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain is a delightful rhyming story full of bright and vivid illustrations by Beatriz Vidal. The cumulative rhyme is a joy to read aloud and a wonderful way to engage young children.
Activity ideas from the story will include discovering Kenya and listening to African music.
Please get in touch via email if you have any questions or there is anything you would like help with.
