I hope you are well.
Today I have been thinking about one of my favourite stories that reminds me of the lure of free gifts you sometimes get if you send off tokens.
There’s a Lion in My Cornflakes serves up the benifits of individuality and the drawbacks of consumerism.
If you had to collect tokens what animal would you like to recieve in your cornflakes?
If you had a lion what would you do with it?
What would your mum do if you bought so many cornflakes?
What animal would you prefer a grizzly bear or a crocodile? Can you give your adult the reasons why?
What would you do with a lifetime supply with cornflakes?
What room in your home would you keep a pet lion?
For Maths I would like you to have a go at ordering using the language of size.
Look at the image of spoons.
which spoon is the smallest?
Which spoon is the largest?
What spoon would you eat your cornflakes with?
How many spoons do you have in your home?
Can you order the spoons from tallest to shortest?
For our Expressive Arts and Design activity why not make a lion from a wooden spoon.
You will need:
A wooden spoon
A black felt tip
If you do not have yellow string you can make the mane with strips of paper.
Some additional paper
Draw eyes onto the spoon
Draw the face
Create a mane by attaching strips of wool or paper
Add ears to your lion. This can be made with the additional paper
Add additional embellishments like a tail or a bow tie like the image above.
Have a roar-some time
