Task 2 is a research and writing task. In our topic work this week we are looking at another endangered animal - the gorilla. The gorilla is one of the great apes (NOT a monkey!) as are four other apes. Look at the picture below to see all 5 of the great apes. Obviously, we know how humans differ from the rest, but can you do some research into how gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and bonobos are different from each other.
Task 3 is a reading activity. In the next few weeks, we would have been studying the books of Anthony Browne. He has written a lot of books about gorillas as he finds them easier to draw than humans! Watch the video below and read along with the words. There is also a pdf version of the book below, if you want to take the reading at a slower pace. Then there are questions to answer.
