Read and enjoy The Ugly Five by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler:

 

The Ugly Five - YouTube

 

Remind your child that these animals are described by the author as to why they think they are ugly.

Can they spot words or phrases which describe each of the five to suggest why they might be thought of as ’ugly’? E.g. The spotted hyena has a spiky mane and spotty skin. He looks grotty and has a voice with a mixture of giggles and groans etc. Ask your child to tell you about each animal.

Ask your child to imagine they are on a safari tour, viewing ‘The Ugly Five’ animals in the wild. Encourage your child to write a recount of what they have seen for their friends and family back home, including some description of the five animals.

Go back to each animal in turn and jot down words or phrases which describe them. Note: these do not have to be in full sentences today.

The focus is to gather vocabulary, e.g. The Wildebeest spindly legs and gingery beard, big chunky chest and skinny behind, weird. 

Repeat with the other four animals.
