    If I was on the earth I would say there are a lot of planets around me. I am hot in some places and cool in others. I look after lots of animals and I am covered in water. I have ice at the top and bottom of me. I see grass all over me.

    Elliot’s writing takes for today (although he dictated it for me to type).

    If the Earth could speak it would say stop putting rubbish on my body. Be careful where you put your houses because you are ruining parks and cutting down my hair which is the trees. Be careful setting fires because I’m too hot and I’m burning. And if you keep killing my animals and creatures I’m sad to say you will die too.

      What a lovely piece of writing.
      I like the idea that the trees are the Earth’s hair.

    1. Why do you think that the great white shark is at the top of the ocean’s food chain?
    They are the biggest fish on our planet which eat other fish and animals.
    2. Where are most great white sharks found?
    All of the world’s ocean, but mostly found in cool water close to the coast.
    3. Find and copy the adjective that the author uses to describe the shark’s sense of smell?
    4. Number these facts from 1-3 to show the order they appear in the text?
    1) They live between thirty and one hundred years.
    2) They can grow up to six metres long.
    3) They have up to three hundred teeth.


    If the earth could speak i would say please keep the earth clean, tidy and safe.


    10, 26, 30, 44, 54, 68, 72, 96 and 100.
