Year 2 have really enjoyed reading the book Zeraffa Giraffa. This is the strange tale of how a giraffe was once walked from Marseille in the south of France up to Paris. There were great scenes along the route. Thousands of people came out to greet the giraffe.
We have used this storyline to help with some drama work in Year 2. The children made the most of the summer weather and our fantastic outdoor theatre space. We worked in pairs to recreate some of the scenes from the book.
The class members were asked to take on one of the characters in the book. We considered how different people might greet Zeraffa along the way. We then explained our feelings and told our class friends what the experience was like when we first saw the giraffe.
