It's 'Big Write' day! This means we would like you to have a go at doing your writing independently.

During the week, you have described the places where the animals live and thought about questions that they might ask each other. Today, we would like you to write speech bubbles pretending to be the penguin and the tiger. You need to describe the places where they live and what the other animal could do if they visited each other.
