2. Write ten facts that include:
-your creature’s name -where you might find it -size
-natural habitat
-any special features it has, e.g. sharp teeth to catch its prey.
Try and include some of the vocabulary that you explored on Wednesday and think about your Year 4 sentence types (fronted adverbials for where, when, how and subordinate conjunctions). 
 Remember to read back through your work and check your spelling and punctuation.

Every Friday, on your 'to do' folder on Purple Mash, I have set a quiz of a random mixture of the Year 3/4 spelling words that you need to know.

1. Please complete the quiz.
