Starlings Class Autumn Term

Starlings Class have been reading about Sunny the meerkat and his adventures in the Kalahari Desert where he lives.

Meerkat Mail is a story of self-exploration, of believing that the grass is greener, of leaving home and coming back again… Our hero Sunny the meerkat lives with his family in the Kalahari Desert and is fed up with two things – the place where he lives and the people (or meerkats!) he lives with. It’s time to move on, so he packs his suitcase, writes a note and starts his search for a better place to eat his ice-creams. We join him as he travels around the world in search of a new home.  Sunny finally arrives at the end of the story that ‘there is no place like home’.
