Dear Zoo Challenge

Dear Children, Parents and Carers

The Reception Team has come up with a little challenge for you all. It is called the ‘Dear Zoo Challenge’.

Basically we want to see if you can create your own version of this classic story, on paper and/or electronically.

You can see Mrs Vastel’s video version here.

Or find it on our Facebook page.

Or download a PDF version here.

Your book could be about finding:

  • the right dinosaur pet (‘It was too scaly/ scary/ pointy. I sent it back.’)
  • the right chocolate bar (‘It was too chewy/ sticky/ crunchy. I sent it back.’)

We can’t wait to read/ watch your stories!!!

Don’t forget to send them to us so we can share them on the school website.

Take a look at some of the completed challenges.
