Talk to your child about the importance of having good manners and role play examples of good behaviour. This could include sitting at the table and eating with cutlery, saying thank you or offering to tidy up after a meal. Ask your child if they think the tiger had good table manners when he came for tea at Sophie’s house? Did he only eat one cake? Did he make a mess? Did he help to tidy up?

 

Explain to your child that they are going to write a list of rules for the tiger to follow when he comes for tea at their house.

 

Challenge: Design a label for a tin of Tiger Food. Can you think of an interesting name for your Tiger Food?
