Listen to the music below and imagine you are one of the animals. What are you thinking?
Here is my first inner thought and it is for the deer: 'I hope it's not me that has to go on this perilous journey,' thought the deer.
Sentence 3 - More inner thought and this time we are going to try and use a question mark and an exclamation mark.
What other thoughts might the different animals have?
Will I? Have I? Can I? I will! I can! etc...
Here are my inner thoughts for the walrus and the hare: 'It's going to be a long, long way? Will I make it?' the walrus wondered. The brave hare thought, 'How exciting! I can do it! I can do it!'
