We imagined our own creatures, drew them and made detailed plasticene models. We wrote reports on our creatures, with one paragraph about its appearance, a second about its habitat and the third about what it did, to find food, for example We learned to write the name of the creature to start the first and last sentence and to use a pronoun (he, she, it) to start the sentences in between.
Eragon is a mighty dragon and the biggest and fiercest creature of the Wanatu Rainforest. His dark blue scales are almost impenetrable. He also has shiny white teeth and two horns on its head. His four legs are equipped with three razor sharp claws and he has small rubbery scales down his back to the tip of his tail. Eragon’s wings are large and so, so strong that he can carry object’s nearly twice his weight while flying.
Eragon lives in his huge nest perched up in the great giant tree of the Wanatu Rainforest. His nest is made of large logs covered with palm leaves and hay. He usually sleeps there at night and hunts during the day but can also hunt at night if he wants. The Wanatu Rainforest is full of dangerous creatures and has a hot climate.
Eragon hunts during the day for the large gemaraks and the retacons by the Lakes of Denga. Eragon flies high in the clouds above one of the lakes until he spots his prey and dive bombs it then takes it to a tree to eat it. Sometimes a serpent attacks him and he has to kill it which can be tough. Eragon flies around if he’s not hunting and sometimes he goes and sees other dragons.

Rough Doodle Scooper
The rough doodle scooper is related to the wolf family. It is colourful with one big bulging eye. It has a birthmark on his first right leg. It is striped with amazing big ears that are 12cm long and has layers of hair on its head

The rough doodle scooper lives in a swamp and will usually be found by rivers. It is originally from India but it was hunted down by hunters and scientists and they had taken the females to the U.S.A for testing or putting in the zoo for people to look at. It is usually really hard to find a rough doodle scooper because it burrows in the ground in a hole covered with grass so you cannot see it. The rough doodle scooper uses hay and twigs for its burrow.
The rough doodle scooper creeps out of its dark, gloomy lair and hunts for families of rough doodles which is a breed of cat that hunts for its food in the pitch black night. It skins the rough doodle with its razor sharp claws and after a night of skinning it eats their flesh and uses their striped fur for the lining for its nest. It drinks the blood from its prey and stores some for winter in a log that it carved with its sharp claws. The rough doodle scooper hunts with its amazing big red eyes only at night.

We have also started to write stories featuring our creatures (and possibly creatures belonging to others in the class). At the moment we are learning how to describe a setting.
We are also making mini "theatres" out of cardboard boxes which will show our creatures in their habitats. Some of us have teamed up if we have the same settings.
