Above are some reading activities for "Evie in the Jungle" by Matt Haig.  Don't worry if you haven't got the book as the extracts and information you need are on the sheets already.  If you do have the book however, now would be a fab time to read it and discover more about the animals in the rainforest.


Keep reading as much as possible!


Other things you could do are write a fact file about your pet, letter to a friend about what you and your pet has been up to or a story that involves your favourite animal.

Below is an ebook linked to our 'Tribal Tales' topic. Read a chapter a day.

Book Review

Now that you have listened to the story, you can write a book review. You can either use the sheet below or copy the sub-headings into your exercise book and write your review in your book. We can't wait to see them.
