Tiger-Themed Lockdown Activities!

If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I teach and also that I love using picture books and Sir David Attenborough’s TV shows in the classroom!

With the current situation, I decided to plan a day of activities based around an animal that stars in both of these media – the tiger – to complete with key worker children in school and with my own children at home!

There is loads going on, including PE (yoga with Cosmic Kids), reading (of Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came to Tea and watching Sir David Attenborough’s Dynasties), art (tiger portraits, mask making, colouring, etc), writing (tiger fact files, comic strips), maths (using tiger infographics), computing (research), geography (exploration of India), DT (tiger safari den building featuring an Eden Project resource) and lots more!

There may even be some dancing to Roar by Katy Perry if you are feeling brave!

You can download my planning for the day, and all resources plus links to relevant websites/YouTube videos, etc, for FREE, below.

  1. My Year 2 class are big tiger fans, so this is absolutely perfect (and so useful for an exhausted teacher working from home and trying to home-school my own children while my keyworker husband is out at work!?). THANK YOU.
