‘Frog and the Stranger’

  • This story is a reminder that we are all different, but that it is so important to treat each other kindly and fairly. How do you think rat felt at different moments in this book?
  • Have a think about any words you didn’t know in the story. Can you find out what they mean?

‘Bringing Down The Moon’

  • I wonder if you can see the moon in the sky at night? It really is beautiful. To learn more about the moon click here
  • There are many phases to the moon, which makes it look different! Have a look below at them.


‘The Crocodile Who Didn’t Like Water’

  • Why do you think Crocodile is lonely? Do you remember a time that you felt lonely?
  • Try acting out the following feelings: scared, chilly, sneezy, surprised, and happy. Don’t forget to be silly and over exaggerate the actions, especially the sneeze!

‘Amazing Grace’

  • Look at the portrait of Grace on the cover of the book. Can you draw your own self-portrait, or a portrait of a friend or family member (or pet)
  • Grace loves stories. What is your favourite story? Could you retell a story to a friend?

‘That Rabbit Belongs To Emily Brown’

  • Stanley is a special toy for Emily. What things are special to you? Why are they special?
  • Could you write about an adventure that you might have with your favourite toy?
  • ‘Rat-a-tat-tat’ is an example of onomatopoeia. Can you find out what this means and find more examples?
  • Imagine that you were going on an adventure with Stanley to Outer Space or the Sahara Desert. Plan what things you might need to take with you.
  • What animals live in the places that Emily and Stanley visit, e.g. The Sahara Desert, the Amazon Rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef? How are they adapted to living there?

It’s a busy house! How is it similar and different to your home?

Why not plan a dance that Gerald might be able to do! The author wrote this book after a trip to Kenya. Can you find Kenya on a map / globe? How might it be similar / different to where you live?

We have made changes to our classroom environment in order to make it as as safe as it can be. The children sit at desks 2m socially distanced from each other and staff. They all have their own pack of resources ( pencils, scissors, sound mat etc) so no one else touches them. We have put marks on the floor to show children where to wait for washing their hands and lining up. We wash our hands at the start of every day and before and after playtimes /before and after eating.
