Writing Task Thursday 23rd  April

Imagine you are a baby duck in an egg and you can talk to the other ducks in the other eggs in the nest with you (don’t worry, the mummy duck is far too busy to listen in!). Write a conversation – complete with interesting ‘said’ bits and correct punctuation/layout – between the ducks as they wait to emerge.

Challenge Use adverbs to make the ‘said’ bits even better and use some lines of speech where the ‘said’ comes in the middle.

A description of the growth of a duck/chicken embryo inside the egg as it gets ready to hatch

Our ducks arrived at about Day 17 or 18
