Creative Writing Task

This week we would like children to listen to the story 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell (video link below) and to then write their own letter to the zoo.  We would like children to use the format of a letter, ensuring they use the words 'dear' and 'from'.  In their letter they should ask for the animal they would like from the zoo and describe this animal.  They could also include what they would do with the animal if it was their pet.  They are then asked to draw a picture of their chosen animal.  A template for writing and an example is provided below.

*Challenge  - Include more than one adjective to describe the chosen animal

**Super challenge - Use a connective to extend your sentences

 

Children are asked to email a picture of their written work or a word document of their writing to the teachers via the Hwb emails on the 'Homework' page, where teachers will then provide appropriate feedback.  They can also send any other pictures of learning they have been doing.
