Reading and phonics - the final read of this weeks books...


I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this book. smileyI wonder if you know which safari animals are herbivores and carnivores. It's the animals who are carnivores who are the most dangerous in the Kenyan grasslands because they are looking for food - and that food is other animals! 

I'll show you a little bit more about that this afternoon, but for now see how fluently you can read now you are very familiar with the book. Don't forget to answer the questions at the back! I think you will do very well!
