Week 3 18.1.21

Information texts - All about tigers

Information: All about Tigers

For the next two weeks we will be learning all about information texts and writing about tigers. There isn’t much writing to do this week so why not have a go at making a tiger mask with a paper plate or draw a picture of tiger in the jungle. Maybe you could make some binoculars to go tiger hunting? There is also a grammar sheet in 'optional extras' that explores the 'est' suffix.
