Question time!

What animals can you see in the picture?

Should animals be kept in captivity?

Can animals form relationships in the same way that humans do?

Would you rather be in an enclosed space or an open space? Why?

Will these animals be safe now?

Who are the people standing in the background?

Perfect picture!

Draw what the seal’s environment may have been like before and what it is like now. Think about what the differences might be.

Story starter!

It had been a long and perilous journey. The three brothers had travelled for days, each in their own confined and cramped space, each unsure if they would ever see each other again.

Edging cautiously out into the blinding sunlight, they peered around at their new and unfamiliar surroundings. Relief flooded each of their bodies as they finally set eyes on each other again, but with the relief came fear, trepidation and uncertainty.

Where were they? Would they be safe here?

Sentence challenge!

Can you use abstract nouns to describe feeling?

Try to use 3 abstract nouns at the start of a sentence to describe a character’s feelings?

e.g. Fear, isolation and heartbreak surged through his body as he edged into the sunlight.

Relief, joy and warmth spread across their faces as they saw each other again.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The seal looked out of the basket.

The sun was shining as the seals went outside.
