Here are some exercises for pupils to try out at home. Parent/carers, please read the instructions below then watch the videos with the young people and pause before the answers.

1.Pupils are to identify which words go together i.e. dog, cat, book – dog and cat – (circle will show correct answers)

2.Then required to explain why i.e. they’re both animals, they both have four legs, they both have tails.

Why can be:

  • Category i.e. animal, vehicle, clothes
  • Features i.e. number of legs, both green – descriptive characteristics.
  • Use i.e. you open them, you clean with them, you wash with them, brush your hair
  • Place i.e. found in a park, found in a kitchen, use in bathroom

N.B if the pupil finds this difficult, model the ‘why’ explanation and try another.
