The Best Nest

A nest is a birds house which birds live in. They have to make it nice and cosy for the soon-coming egg.

The contents of the nest include straw, hay, wheat, hair, stuffing (wool) and drinking straws.

The nest is warm therefore the egg is happy. The nest is in a high place, so predators cant get it.

It works by acting like a heater to warm the egg to make is faster to hatch.

The nest is a unique thing it is essential for birds


TASK

  • Pick one of the writing prompts we brainstormed and have a go at writing an explanation.

WALHT use time connectives in our writing.

Read the following explanation example and think about the TIME words that connect the story together and keep it in order.


How a Spider’s web forms

A spider web looks delicate but it is very STONG. It can hold 4000 times a spider’s weight. But how does it form?

First the spider spins a thread of silk. The thread gets bloan over to a branch by the wind. Then she makes another two threads and makes a Y shape. Next she makes more threads and they look like spokes of a weel. Then the spider goes in a spirl, out and back in, sits in the middle and waits for food.

This is how a web is formed.


Write the words used in the nest text, brainstorm some more we could use:
