London Zoo - KS1/KS2 - Writing a fact file about London Zoo

This set of resources is a great introduction to London Zoo. It is suitable for children in upper KS1 and lower KS2.

The presentation first locates London Zoo within the UK and London itself. Children then find out a variety of interesting facts about the zoo. Next the activity challenges children to write a fact file about London Zoo. It is differentiated four ways:

LA - cloze procedure activity (children write missing words)

LMA - cloze procedure activity (children write whole sentences)

UMA - children write own fact file (with sentence starters and vocab prompt)

UA - children write own fact file (with vocabulary prompt)

I’ve included an editable version of the activities too. Please be aware this does not display properly in the preview window!
