Monkey and his Mummy are on their way to school. It’s Monkey’s very first day at school and he’s nervous and a bit worried.
“Don’t worry,” says Mummy, “everyone will be very friendly in there, I promise”.
Monkey didn’t say anything, he really wasn’t sure about school today, maybe he’d just start school tomorrow? He was about to suggest this when they arrived at a door and Mummy opened it. In the room, there was one big desk at the end and six little desks.
Sitting at the first little desk was a cow and on the top of the desk was some grass.
Sitting at the second little desk was a rabbit and on the top of the desk was a carrot.
Sitting at the third little desk was a horse and on the top of the desk was some sugar lumps.
Sitting at the fourth little desk was a chicken and on the top of the desk was some grain.
Sitting at the fifth little desk was a dog and on the top of the desk was a sausage.
Nobody was sitting at the sixth little desk but on the top of the desk was a banana.
“That’s my desk,” said Monkey. He looked up to check with his Mummy who smiled and encouraged him.
Monkey ran over to his desk and sat down just in time for the teacher to arrive.
