Choose an African animal.  Can you draw your chosen animal?

Think about what your animal looks like - for example, size, colours, patterns, any special features...

Write sentences to describe your chosen African animal.  Remember to try and include finger spaces and a full stop in your sentences.

Mrs Ryan has completed an example to help you...

The elephant is grey.

It has a long trunk and four legs.

The elephant likes to spray water.
