Early Level - Suggested Activity

Suggested Learning Framework

In this activity, pupils will listen to stories and rhymes about giant pandas. They will explore and experiment with sounds, words and text to make up their own rhymes and stories about pandas and other animals. Using interesting and stimulating materials, pupils will extend their vocabulary and experiment with words, either on their own or in groups, to encourage imaginative writing.

  • Choose one of the suggested story books to read to the class or choose the panda facts book and talk about pandas in their natural environment.
  • Read the Giant Panda Rhyme and ask the class if they can make up two or more lines.
  • Draw pictures to go with each line.
