Watch Monsters University Trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlM81qGgo20 Start by looking at all of the different types of monsters. Do you know any of their names? Repeat, this time pausing to discuss the ones they spot. What do they look like? E.g. Mike Wazowski is lime green and round (or shaped like a sphere). He has one big eye in the middle of his head. He has two small horns on the top of his head with thin arms. Find your favourite monster from the list on this website: https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Monsters,_Inc._characters and with an adult, talk about its description. How many eyes has it got? What shape is its head/body? Can you spot how many arms and legs it has? How is it different from the other monsters? Draw your favourite monster and label it with words.

With a grown-up, play a listening game about a visit to a farm. ‘I went to the farm and I saw……’ instead of saying the animal name, split the word up into its 3 letter sounds.
