Gorilla by Anthony Browne

What a lovely first few days we have had! The whole class has settled incredibly well into Year 2 as we have jumped straight into our learning.

This week we have been looking at the story Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We acted out the different parts on a story trail in drama before creating a story map to help us write a retell. I was very impressed with the stories produced.

In guided reading we looked at some questions and compared some illustrations in the story Gorilla, commenting on the authors choice for these. This led to art where we used warm and cold colours to express how we feel when we are happy and sad.

I look forward to another exciting week next week in Year 2! Take a look at some photos from our story trail below.
