Gorilla - Anthony Browne

Discussion in 'Primary' started by sammfran, Jan 31, 2011.

  1. Hello, i am in need of a little inspiration. I am a year 1 teacher who has been asked to team teach in Y6 in literacy in the hope i can bring some KS1 elements to KS2. I want to use a strong picture book like Gorilla that has multi layers for y6 to explore,have thought of a few obvious things like persuasive writing, writing from a perspective and exploring belonging. I would like to take any suggestions for other ways to approach this book with Y6 and espcially motivating boys.
    Thanks

    This is very useful, but for a different Browne book.

    Hi, I went on a course one where they modelled an approach for using this book for Guided Reading, but could poss be tweaked for lit. They hada blown up picture of the gorilla in a cage, choopped into squares. Got us to keep adding pieces ad reflecting on what we could see. KI thnoik they gave us the eye first, so we didn't know it was a gorilla, and the final bit revealed it was in a cage. We discussed what might have happened etc. I'm assuming it was that book, anyway!

    Oh my! I should never post in the morning - not sure what 'Kl thnoik' was meant to say - maybe something in gorilla speak?!
