Have a go at writing your own questions for Mr Hoyle to answer. Try and use a variety of question words such as who, what, which, where, how and when. Don't forget to add your question mark at the end of the sentence.

Find out some facts using the animal pictures below. Can you write your facts as statements? Remember, a statement is not just the fact but the fact in a sentence i.e. "sharp teeth" is not a sentence but "Crocodiles have sharp teeth." is.
