Read the story of Handa's Surprise using the video from Tuesday. Read up to the parrot taking the last fruit.

As each page is read ask the children to predict what they think will happen next.  Which fruit will be taken?  Which animal will take it?

What will happen now that all the fruit has gone?  How will Handa feel when she realises all the fruit has been taken?  How can Handa still surprise Akeyo?


Refer back to the text and look at the descriptions of each fruit – soft yellow banana etc.  


Think about other fruits – apple, pear, strawberry etc.  How could they describe these fruits?  






Draw/colour/paint/collage a picture of your favourite piece of fruit.
