Dear Zoo!

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell 1

We have had lots of fun learning the story Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell as part of our learning in Nursery over the past few weeks.

Picture 1 We have been sharing the story with our friends...
Picture 2 ...And acting it out with animals and puppets!

We have had so much fun exploring Dear Zoo, we created a story map, painted our favourite animals from the story and talked about why some of them did not make very good pets.

Picture 1 'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet.'
Picture 2 'They sent me an elephant...'
Picture 3 '...But he was too big.'
Picture 4 'They sent me a giraffe...'
Picture 5 '...He was too tall.'
Picture 6 'They sent me a lion...'
Picture 7 '...He was too fierce.'
Picture 8 'They sent me a camel...'
Picture 9 '...He was too grumpy'.
Picture 10 'They sent me a snake, he was too scary.'
Picture 11 'They sent me a monkey, he was too naughty.'
Picture 12 'They sent me a frog, he was too jumpy.'
Picture 13 'They sent me a dog, he was perfect!'
