Lemur Big Talk 10.01.18

Date: 10th Jan 2018 @ 9:07am

Happy New Year and welcome back to the Spring Term!

This week we are reading the story, 'How To Lose A Lemur' by Frann Preston Gannon. So this week's Big Talk image is of ring-tailed lemurs!

Share the image with your child. Talk about what they can see. Here are some questions you could ask:

* What can you see? What are these animals? (lemurs)

* How many lemurs can you see?

* What do the lemurs look like? Can you describe them? What colours can you see?

* Do all of the lemurs in the photo look the same? How are they different?

* Where do you think the lemurs are going? 

*How do lemurs move? Do they always crawl?

Here is a video that we have watched together this week:


As always, we would love to hear your child's responses and ideas! Please post on our blog below so that we can share their ideas.
