The theme this week at school is Zoo animals. Yesterday, we read the book, ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell, which is about a child who wants a pet and writes to the zoo to ask him to send one. Unfortunately the animals they send back are not quite right (giraffe is too tall, elephant is too big) but in the end they send an animal that is ‘perfect.’
The children then created their own ‘lift the flap’ pictures in the style of the book, by drawing their favourite animal behind a flap and deciding why the animal wasn’t quite right (eg too tall, too big etc) then writing the story sentences, “They sent me a.....” “but it was too.....so I sent it back.”
Perhaps you could also have a go at making your own ‘lift the flap’ pictures in the style of Dear Zoo.
