  • We are reading Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne. It goes with our theme 'our world' and has lots of lovely adjectives that we will use in our writing. Enjoy the video!
  • HANDA'S SURPRISE - Picture Book- Animation

    Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend, Akeyo. But as she walks, carrying the basket on her head, various creatures steal her fruits. A monkey takes the banana, an ostrich the guava, a zebra the orange, an elephant the mango, a giraffe the pineapple, an antelope the avocado and a parrot the passion fruit.

  • We have been improving our sentences using adjectives. Have a look at which adjectivesHanda uses to describe the fruit...
  • Read out loud

  • This story needs the pictures to make sense. Can you tell us how the tangerines got into the basket and where all the other fruit went?!

    Can you retell the story with this extra information?

    I bet you can because you are amazing!
