Session 2


Create a survival guide - Plan

This is your last full week as an Otter, and it is time to share what you have learned. No, not Maths, English or Science… How did you survive Otters and Mr Freeman!!!

Time to think through all those times you’ve rolled your eyes as Mr Freeman complains, again, about capital letters and full stops. Or maybe you have some advice about the best way to ensure you have fun in school. What ever you do…don’t mention Mr Freeman’s “secret” sweet stash.


You are allowed to include what you like, but make sure you stay respectful, especially if you want this shared with the new Otters.


If you need some inspiration, look through the planning sheet I have included to get you started. Spend some time thinking through what you want to include and how you are going to structure your survival guide.

Session 3


Create a survival guide – TAKE YOUR TIME

I want you to create this piece of writing, so I am leaving it up to you on how you want to create it. I suggest draft and editing, to make sure you don’t have to ruin any final pieces, but it is up to you.

It is up to you how you want to present your survival guide, but it needs to be beautifully presented and should show off your ability as writers.

You could do a poster, a leaflet or a pamphlet. You can create it on a computer or using pen/pencil. Be creative and show flair, but make sure it is usable.

Make sure you write using correct sentence structure, punctuation and spellings.

Take time to ensure it is presented really well and includes lots of top tips for surviving Otters Class.

You are welcome to add artwork to give it some wow factor.


Once I have seen them, I may share some excellent examples with Owls class.
