Summer Term Storytime (Books and Novels)

June 2022 - Anthony Browne


As part of our English (writing) we are exploring the text 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne, and eventually writing our own endings to the story.


To celebrate this, our class readers each day will focus on the huge variety of tales that Anthony has written.

So far we have read:

  • Voices at the Park
  • Willy and Hugh
  • Gorilla
  • Zoo


We look forward to reading many more of Anthony Browne's stories. If you have any at home your child would like us to share in school, please let us know :)


You can explore and learn more about this fantastic author using his website: Anthony Browne Books
