Story starter!

She gritted her teeth and began the climb.

With her vulnerable young perched precariously on her back as she ascended the branch, the extra weight caused her paws to tremble, and her sensitive whiskers to twitch at the strain.

Can you continue the story of the possums as they strive to find a new home?

Alternatively, you could do further research on possums and produce a non-chronological report about them?


Sentence challenge!

Can you use adverbs in your writing to describe how something is done?

Can you use adverbs before nouns?

Can you use adverbs after nouns?

Question time!

What do you think has happened to their nest?

What is the mother possum thinking?

Which of the baby possums has the best seat and why?

Possums have incredible senses. Which of our senses do you think we use the most?


Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The possum had eyes and fur. She went up the branch carrying her young.


Perfect picture!

Think about where the perfect place for a possum to build a nest might be, then draw or describe it.
