Whole Class introduction
Read through the text 'One Night in the Zoo' up to the part with the flamingoes 'turning from pink to blue'.

'The .... was magical because....' eg. The tissue was magical because it turns anyone who touches it invisible!
Children to take turns using the word 'astonished'.
'I was astonished when I saw.... '
