Spring Term 1

Week 2

This week in literacy we have been experts in the field of animal welfare and protection. We were given a brief that said the following:


The Brief

There has been a major disaster on a small island in the Ocean. Many endangered species are on this island and a fire has taken over. All the animals are being forced to flee into the mountainous area at one end of the island. 


An expert rescue team has been contacted and are preparing to fly to the disaster site. This team has a long history of rescuing animals in all sorts of circumstances – from the very small to the very large. The team have state of the art equipment, machinery and vehicles.


We had to work together in a team and decide how we were going to rescue the animals, then we had to plan out the rescue using our expert skills and knowledge. After this the children wrote some amazing recount of their rescue efforts, well done!
