The Tiger Really Did Come for Tea!

We have really enjoyed reading the story, ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr. We decided to have our very own tea party. To prepare for it, we wrote lists of what we would need and then wrote invitations. On the day of our tea party, a tiger came to visit. 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!
