Summer 1 - Rainforest Rumble
There's an orangutan in my classroom and we don't know what to do, He plays with all our toys and keeps borrowing our glue.
We found an orangutan in our classroom!
He looks like he's been having lots of fun in the pictures that he has posted to us. He has been playing with a shoe and some glue, been in the hall with a ball and been eating carrots with parrots!
He just loves to rhyme, we thought we could help him have some more fun by thinking of other things that rhyme too!
We worked in groups to match some rhyming pairs and continue a rhyming string.
We wanted to find out more about Clyde the Orangutan so we asked him some questions. Some of the things we asked were:
Why did you come to school?
What made you leave your home?
What is the rainforest like?
Do you know King Louie?
It was time to go to the rainforest! We all boarded the plane with our passports and boarding cards. Once we had found our seats we had to fasten our seat belts ready for take off. It was a bit bumpy when we got in to the air, we were moving all over the place. We decided to have a sleep because the flight was soooo long. Finally we landed!
We got off the airplane and had to fan ourselves because it was so hot. Moments later we had to unpack our waterproof coats because it was raining. We walked through the rainforest and found a camp to stop at. We sat down and the Rainforest Ranger Peter appeared. He was so happy to see Clyde with us. He told us he was worried because he was missing some of Clyde's friends. He had some pictures of what they looked like and we decided to help. We made him some 'missing' posters that he could put up. Have a look below.
We had a brilliant day at YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK! We got to see lots of different animals. It was so fun!
We even got to go in the indoor play ground. Mr Frankland went down the slide with some of us.
