The structure of this week's writing each day will be:

- Watch a video which will provide you with specific information about elephants

- Note take on key words/facts that you will use within your writing.

- Write clear sentences to explain the facts you have learnt 

Then we will edit our writing!

 

The headings we will be focusing on are:

- Elephant's family

- What elephants eat & drink

- Elephant's environment

If you have the opportunity to, please head over to the website 'Disney+' and search for a film called 'ELEPHANTS'. Please see image below of the correct selection of film. 

 

Each day there will be a section of the film you need to watch in order to write. Please make sure that you only watch that section of the film on that day so that you can keep your writing clear and specific for each paragraph.
