In Giraffes we have started looking at a new story ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. It contains no words only illustrations so we had to develop our own narrative for what was happening in the pictures. We made predictions about what would happen next in different stages of the story and created our own magical worlds beyond the red door.
