Primary 5 – Mrs. Jackson’s Literacy Challenge

Morning Primary 5, I hope you enjoyed getting back to ‘school’ yesterday! My tasks are for everyone to have a go at if you wish. I enjoyed reading ‘Miss. Child Has Gone Wild’! A tough class!!!

Miss Child Has Gone Wild! (My Weirder School, #1) by Dan Gutman

Reading Challenge:

Go to Epic and read some more of the book.

Writing Challenge

The class won a trip to their local zoo. Quite an adventure!

I want you to go onto the Edinburgh Zoo website; select an animal to research and create an A4 information sheet all about this creature. Saying why it’s the best place to be in the zoo.

You want to persuade your reader that it’s the craziest enclosure in the zoo. Think about your use of description and use pictures and creative lettering to entice the visitors!

Hello Primary 5, I hope you’ve had a chilled Easter break! Are you ready for the term ahead? It’s been a quick year.

So, I’ve doubled checked The Epic website and the Epic app and I’ve managed to select a book that is on both. Fingers crossed!!!

Today’s challenge is to get you reading… It is so important to read regularly for enjoyment and I’ve selected a book that I hope you will enjoy!
