Billy's Sunflower by Nicola Moon & Karin Littlewood


We are learning more about sunflowers.  Did you know they are my favourite flower?  I just love their bright yellow petals and the fact they can grow so tall.

Activities:

1. Read the story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL_N72JG9QY

2. Write some sentences to say what you liked about the story, who were the characters in the story, what happened to Billy's sunflower and what happened at the end of the story.  Can you say whether this is a fiction or a non-fiction story and how do you know?

3. Make some simple puppets from the story and retell the story in your own words.  You could draw some pictures and stick them to a wooden lolly stick or a pencil.

4.  Draw a picture of a sunflower and label it.  Can you use any of the key words from the book? Eg stem, petal, leaf, roots, seeds, flower.

5.  Plant a sunflower.

 

 Handwriting

Here is a handwriting booklet to practice letter and word formation.  At Tiptoe we use Cursive handwriting.  In Class 5 we practice printing our letters.
