Year 4 & 5 – All about an animal

How much can you tell me about your favourite animal?

You hopefully have done a lot of fictional writing, but now we are going to look at writing non-fiction.

Non-fiction is informative and usually contains facts. Find out more by clicking here.

So, the task I want you to try is telling me about your favourite creature. This can be anything from a lion to blobfish (google this for a laugh!)

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • What is the classification of the animal? (click here)
  • What is its habitat? (click here)
  • What is its diet? (click here)
  • Any other facts – for example, is your animal endangered?
