How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth


This half term children are learning all about the Stone Age, with a focus on safety and protection.  We have begun our topic by reading the book, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.  The book is a hilarious instruction manual for how to clean your pet mammoth.  We began our topic by discussing how washing a mammoth might present a challenge by learning a bit about the height and weight of a mammoth.  Children then enjoyed a toy washing activity during which we practised using imperative verbs and adverbs to describe the approach using precise vocabulary.  Children encountered words such as "lather", "rinse", "scour" and "thoroughly".  We will now be exploring using these words to enhance the instructions written in the original book.
