Choose your favourite Rainforest animal. Design/build an enclosure for your chosen Rainforest animal. Think about its natural habitat and try to include lots of features to make sure your animal is happy and healthy. Once you have designed/built your enclosure, imagine you are presenting your enclosure ideas to Bristol Zoo. Write a short 'pitch' explaining all about your design to try to persuade them to build it. You could even practise presenting your 'pitch' to your family or send me a clip on Dojo. I'm sure you will all come up with some very creative ideas.

Persuasive Writing - 3 week unit

Should animals be kept in zoos?

Week 1

Research the pros and cons of animals being kept in zoos. What do you think? Should they or shouldn't they?  Make up your own mind about if you agree or disagree. Can you explain why you think that? Talk to others. Do they agree with you? If they don't, try to persuade them!


I have provided one link to a website but Parent/Carers - please be mindful of age appropriate websites when doing further research as this is an emotive subject.

Tell me about the rainforest creature you have designed.

Write a fact file or a non-chronological report telling me all about your creature. Use subheadings - for example: the name of your creature, where it lives (habitat), what it eats (diet), their appearance (description), interesting features and fascinating facts. Think about how you can interest your reader with your introduction. I look forward to reading your reports and learning about your new species of creature.
