Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth.

Log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read this week’s story! 

If you are having trouble accessing our video, choose a book at home to read to yourself or share with someone in your family.

Can you make a mask of your favourite character in the story?


Can you draw, paint or make the story setting?


Can you draw a character from the story and add labels to describe them?



Can you act out the story?  You could create your own props, puppets or costumes to help.

Discuss what is your favourite and least favourite part of the story and why?

After watching the video, discuss: Would you like to live here?  How is it the same/different to where you live?  How would you get there?  What would you wear for your travels around the country (is it hold or cold)?   

To explore the country a little more, choose a challenge (or two) from the grid below:  


Make the country’s flag. 



Make or build a famous building or landmark. 


Learn a traditional song.  



Learn to say hello / goodbye in the language native to the country.  



Research a native animal.  


Count to 5 in the language native to the country.  


There is also two episodes of Go Jetters which visit this country. They both link to the information from our storybook. The links can be found below:
