Animals

Activity 1

Watch this video - it’s a bit longer than the other ones you’ve seen, but you’ll see loads of animals in it! Listen out for any that you already know, and when you’ve watched it, practise saying them - plus any new ones that you learn.

Since there’s so many, here’s a table of the animals mentioned in the video, plus a few more, to help you:

Phew! There’s a lot to get your head round! Once you’ve spent a bit of time learning them, print off this activity sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper.

You can also print off this wordsearch. If you don’t have a printer, practise writing the animals given on the wordsearch and also the ones where you’re just given a picture. Can you spot the words by just looking at the wordsearch on the screen?
