Animal Airlines!

Question time!

Animal cruelty is a problem in countries all over the world. Have you ever heard any stories about cruelty to animals? Have you heard of any organisations that try to prevent cruelty to animals?

Have you ever been to a zoo? Is it morally wrong to keep animals in zoos? Do zoos benefit certain animal populations?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw the Captain of the aircraft?

Story starter!

“Welcome to Animal Airlines: this is your Captain speaking! We will do everything we can to ensure you have an enjoyable and comfortable flight. Our highly trained crew will endeavour to meet your every need: the meerkats will provide in-flight entertainment, our koalas can bring you a variety of snacks, the sloths will take care of your luggage and the giraffes give excellent foot massages! For those of you wanting a good night’s sleep we have an excellent range of relaxing whale music available, or if it’s a party you’re after we have our in-flight music playing in the rear cabin, courtesy of ‘The Monkeys’. I once again do wish you a comfortable and enjoyable flight, and I can assure you that you can have every confidence in me as your Captain: everyone knows polar bears are extremely reliable!”

Can you continue this story about the flight on Animal Airlines?

You could try describing what each of the animals do during the flight, making up jobs for various different animals.

Sentence challenge!

Verbs are action/doing words. Can you begin a sentence with one? E.g. Snoring, it has always been an irritating thing to do on a flight. Sleeping, she has always struggled sleeping on flights.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better.

The giraffe had a neck and horns. He turned his head around the cabin and looked at the girl with his eyes. This was a stange flight.
