A FANTASTIC BIG WRITE TO DO WITH YOUR CLASS!!
1.) Read the story of ‘Mr Big’ by Ed Vere.
2.) Watch the BBC clip about Mountain Gorillas to find out what gorillas do in the wild.
3.) Ask the children to imagine they have a new teacher called ‘Mr Big’ … and he’s a GORILLA! Plan what kind of things he would teach you and where he would take you? E.g. eat bamboo and celery, drink from a stream, beat your chest etc.
A member of staff could even dress up as a GORILLA!!
Video, Plan, writing template and example story attached.
