Week 4 Topic - The Rainbow Fish
Listen to the story of the Rainbow Fish. You might want to listen to it more than once if you haven't heard it before. It's a fabulous story!
There are lots of nice activities and challenges that you can do once you know the story. I have included some of them for you to try.
The setting for this story is under the sea. Draw a picture of the setting and label the things you can see. Try and use adjectives in your labels eg. swirly seaweed; large rocks; glimmering water; dark gloomy cave
Draw all the characters in the book with their names. Do this in the order they appear. Write some labels/captions or sentences to describe each character.
Draw your own Rainbow Fish and decorate using blues, greens and purples (you could make a pattern if you like a challenge).
Put it in the window to cheer up anybody passing
Draw your own rainbow animal or
Make a Rainbow Fish collage using different materials or
Paint an underwater scene (if you paint water on your paper first, it will help all the other sea colours merge together and look watery. Let this dry and then add other detail like seaweed).
Do you remember our 5 Oceans song? I thought it might go well with the Rainbow Fish!

See if you can learn this rap about the days of the week with your parents.
