Walking through the Jungle - Lesson/activity ideas


Recommended Posts



I am a NQT in a reception class and I have an observation coming up later this week but I am stuck for ideas! Our topic this term is Journeys and this week we are looking at the book Walking through the Jungle. There is no specific focus for my observation which is great but because it has been left so open I am stuck! Any ideas on activities linked to this book or the jungle/journeys theme would be much appreciated.

We did walking through the jungle as 'Talk 4 writing'. We read it then collectively decided the different actions for each animal and movement. We then collectively drew a story map of the journey the boy makes, the children helped to remember the story and draw the animals etc. We took the story outside and all moved in the differernt ways as we recited the story. We talked about other ways the animals could move around, could there be other animals and how would they move. We took the story into PE too.

Hope this is of some use
