Use different openers to vary my sentences

For example: Did you know? Would you believe?

Friday 5th March

Learning Objective: To publish my Orangutan Fact File

Today we are going to publish our fact files.  Watch the video to see one way of presenting the information in the form of a leaflet.  You could also publish them on a page as the example in the photo below. 


Once you have published your fact file, remembering to use your neatest handwriting, you could have a go at reading the information out loud to an audience. You could do this to someone in your household, on a video call or you could record yourself.  Please send in your completed factfiles using the link at the top of this page or by clicking here - we'd love to see them.


Orangutan has a special message for Aslans today - watch the video to find out more!
