 Welcome back! We hope you have all managed to have a lovely half term! We have an exciting half term lined up for you as we are working with Musical Minds where we will be learning to play the ukulele! Not only that, but we have a brand-new text to work on!smiley 

 

Gorilla (large format) (Big Books): Amazon.co.uk: Browne, Anthony, Browne,  Anthony: Books

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our text this half term will be "Gorilla" written by Anthony Browne which is a brilliant text that we can't wait to get stuck into!This story is about a lonely girl, a friendly gorilla, and their enchanted night out. Hannah spends all of her time reading gorilla books, watching gorilla TV shows, and drawing gorilla pictures. She has gorillas on her bedside lamp and even on her box of cereal. Hannah loves gorillas and longs to see a real one, but her father is always too busy - or too tired - to take her to the zoo. Then, on the night before her birthday, something extraordinary happens - and Hannah's wish comes gloriously true...
