The Tiger Really Did Come for Tea!

We asked him questions to find out more about his character and why he came to eat all of the food! We then watched ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ together.

The following week, we thought of different adjectives to describe the Tiger’s appearance and personality. We then used our adjectives to write a description of the Tiger on a ‘Wanted’ poster. What fun we have had!
