Our model text is about dragons and explains why they became extinct. This week it is your turn to write your own explanation texts, but as this is a particularly difficult genre/type of writing to master, we’re going to stick pretty close to the model text and write about another animal. There are three main choices you can choose from: an endangered animal, an extinct animal or a fictional animal. Today you will be researching and planning your text about your chosen animal. We cannot wait to see your planning sheets :)
