    I was wondering if Plop from 'The Owl who was afraid of the dark' might work this year. Has anybody used Plop before?
  5. Is there possibly a risk with "Plop" that they will already have written about night time animals for the non-chronological report (long writing task).I would worry that some of my children (lower ability in particular) might get muddled up and start writing a non-chronological report about Plop instead of a character description!
  6. I agree Lucy. I think it could get quite confusing, especially if they had a lot of focus on writing scientific descriptions of owls in their report writing.
    I would stick to a character that has lots of potential for good description of appearance and personality.
  7. I'm wanting to get my children to research nocturnal animals in a little booklet. Not sure how to set this out so no one can say that they had an unfair advantage.

    Anyone have examples of what they do or use?
