WRITING CHALLENGE OF THE DAY:
Well done on all your super efforts with our writing challenges. It’s Friday and it is the last day before Easter so let’s have some fun… what is this dogsaying on the phone?! Who is he ringing? Why is he dressed so smart? He looks kind of important, doesn’t he? Write a few sentences about what him and what he is doing. CHALLENGE: Can you include punctuated speech between him and the person on the other end of the phone?
Thursday: Mr Whoops has made a bit of a mess of his writing! Could you help to correct his mistakes and show him how he can improve his writing? Send your completed work to email@example.com or tweet @FStlukesbury2
Wednesday: Miss Foster has been feeding the butterflies now they are nearly all our of their cacoons. She researched online and found out that they need nectar and fruit to feed from. I have made some nectar by mixing together 50ml of water and two teaspoons of sugar. I put this on some flower heads and popped it, carefully into the net. I then cut some sweet, juicy strawberries and scored some small lines in them (can you see?) that means the butterflies can get the sweet juice from the inside. Then I carefully added these to the net too. I had to be extra careful I didn't drop them too near to any butterflies because I didn't want to hurt their delicate, beautiful wings!
For your writing challenge today... can you write a set of instructions somebody could follow to look after our butterflies?
Don't forget your success criteria, you can see below. I can't wait to see your work. Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday: We received a postcard from our Guide Dog Puppy Ruby yesterday! I can't believe she has grown so much. Look at her in that dishwasher! Sounds like another puppy I know...
She has told us about how much she is learning with her training family and all the things she enjoys. It sounds like she is having a wonderful time. For your writing challenge today, can you write back to her? Can you introduce yourself to her and tell her all about what you have been doing? She would WOOF to read them! Don't forget your success criteria you can see below, and to email your completed work to email@example.com
Monday: We have our first butterfly!! Look at them - so beautiful and seem to be adjusting to their new home and new self! Can you write some sentences about their transformation? What a transformation they have made! What adjectives could we use to describe them? Maybe you could write some expanded noun phrases about them? What do you think they make of their new look? Are they excited to be set free outside?
Remember all the elements of a super sentence! Send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @FStlukesbury2
Thursday: If you visit https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/tiger-cam/ you can watch a live stream of some of the animals in the zoo! How amazing! Have a watch of the animals today and see what they are up to in the sunshine. Can you write some sentences about what they are doing? What can you see? Which animal is your favourite and why? Three guesses which animal Miss Foster has been watching...

Ollie went out for a lovely walk yesterday and met a new friend! Can you write some speech you think they might have said to each other?! What adjectives can you think of to describe what you can see in the picture... Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @FStlukesbury2
What is happening in this picture?!
Can you write a short piece of writing about this picture. It could be a letter to someone or something in it; a list of all the adjectives you could use to describe what's happening or a description of a walk through the zoo.
What is happening? What are the people saying? What would you be able to see, hear, smell and taste? Why does that crocodile have a suitcase? What is inside it?! Where is he going?!
Wednesday 1st April... We have 4 butterflies; Twix, Minnie, Pixie and.... well we need another name 2F! Please let us know your ideas. They have been fed juicy strawberries and sweet flowers today with sugar water which is like nectar for them. They look happy and have been trying to have a little fly around the net this afternoon. They have such beautiful, delicate wings.
