Explore the work of former Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne, with this video and activities

These activities accompany the video interview with Anthony Browne, in which he discusses gorillas and his relationship with his dad.

Key Stage 1

Anthony tells us that one reason he likes gorillas is that they remind him of his father. Sketch a gorilla on one side of the whiteboard or flipchart and Anthony Browne’s dad on the other. Watch the section of film again where Anthony is asked about gorillas and ask the children to note down the reasons why his dad reminds him of a gorilla. Annotate the drawings with words used by Anthony, for example: powerful, fierce, gentle.
