Focus activity - Writing
Dr. Rose used lots of verbs (doing words) when she was telling us about the rainforest. Complete the verb table by writing down the verbs Dr. Rose used for each animal. Then think of your own additional verbs that could be used for each animal.
Watch the 'Green plants and animals in the rainforest' clip on BBC Bitesize. Listen carefully, the narrator uses some great adjectives and verbs to describe what is going on in the video. Maybe you could use some of these to help you with your focus activity.
The video shows lots of green plants and animals that live in the rainforest. Can you use collage to create your own green rainforest picture? You can use any green materials such as; tissue paper, paper, card, green plastic bags, green paint, wax crayons, pencils, leaves from outside. Your whole picture could be made of different greens with hidden camouflaged animals or you could add splashes of colour for rainforest animals that are not green!

Are there any words that make the ‘air’ sound but don’t fit the ‘air’, ‘ear’ or ‘are’ rule?
