    At the zoo one day Benjamin and his friends were playing hide and seek together; Benjamin was the seeker. He didn’t like being the seeker but he had to put up with it. After a full minute of counting it was about time he would play his role. He started searching in bushes and shrubs. He couldn’t find anyone but he had a plan. He didn’t think of great plans so to think of the perfect plan it took a while. He thought and away he went to find a tall tree, he climbed up and saw everyone; even the hiders who were on the other trees!

    The sun was beating down on me as I walked through the savannah. I stopped under a tree for some shade. As I drank some water and stared ahead of me I spotted something out of the corner of my eye. I realised it was a giraffe so I put on my binoculars and watched it closely. This is what I saw: a giraffe was eating leaves and passing some down to its baby when its neck got caught on a branch and next thing I knew it did five flips around the branch and hugged the tree for life.

    Today we were going to see the monkeys. Father had announced it to us at breakfast. They lived high up in the trees, swinging around all day long.

    We travelled quickly and were there in no time. Father then kicked the tree and the monkey family scurried out. They muttered something in monkeyish and then beckoned us to follow them. They swung from tree to tree making funny noises. It looked so fun. Without thinking I sprinted towards a tree and hurled myself at it. I realised I was clinging onto it, high above the ground. I was STUCK.

    One day in the Serengeti there was a giraffe called Gustav and he had a phobia of spiders! Gustav was looking for the juiciest tree in the park whilst squashing lots of angry ants in his path. “I’m the greatest animal!” Gustav exclaimed. “Ha ha!” he said proudly when he found the tree he was looking for! He ate leaf after leaf until Bob the spider came, that made Gustav jump out of his skin and on to the tree! This way he can’t get me he thought to himself. “Now who’s the greatest animal?!” boasted Bob.

    George was a giraffe. He was also very clever. One day he saw a forest, he walked over to a tall oak. He decided to climb it! When he finally got to the top, he jumped to the next tree. It was safe to do, so he began to jump like crazy. After a while he got bored and realised that he’d forgot the the way home. Just then he stepped on a dead branch. There was a massive CRACK! Next second George was hanging on the tree for dear life! Then he felt a tug on his leg, it was his mum.

    Gerry the Giraffe by Fintan Hutton
    Gerry was born. He was really small as he grew up but he just didn’t seem as big as the other giraffes. All the other giraffes used to talk about all the things that they could see. So, no matter what he did, even if he stood on his tip toes, Gerry could not see a thing. One day Gerry was so determined that he would be able to join in with the others. He had a plan. He looked around for the tallest tree. Gerry started to climb, higher and higher until he reached the top. Then he was STUCK!

    The sun beamed over me like a warm hug as I walked through the scorching hot desert. The ground looked dull, like blank paper. It was a long walk of nothing. Suddenly, from the corner of my eye I saw a huge tall tree! Like the blank paper had been made into a work of art! I felt the need to climb it! Sand on my feet gave me grip, it was wonderful! From the top I saw another giraffe. He came and helped me down from the beautiful lush tree. We both laughed about my terrific tree climbing adventure.

    Ginger looked down. Had he gone yet? It had been an eventful morning and the memories still burned fresh in her mind. He, the strange but oddly handsome giraffe, had been chasing her to prove he was worthy of her. It had totally freaked her out as he had been yelling at her that he was the one and that they belonged together. He had chased her right up this tree and was still stood there shouting words which were a mystery to her. The question was could he hear her? Sighing, she called “I give over! Let’s get married.”
