Your first task today is to draw and label a picture of the Ning Nang Nong.

What creatures and living things need to be included in your picture? (cows, monkeys, mice, trees). If you were to attach speech bubbles to the animals, what would they be saying? (Bong! BOO! Clang!)

What other creatures or living things could you add? What might they be doing? What other noises might you hear? Remember it doesn’t matter how ridiculous your ideas are – you can be as creative as you like! Colour your picture to make it as attractive as possible.

Now write some sentences to describe 

your version of the Ning Nang Nong. Remember to include details about all the living creatures that live there, the noises they make and what they do. You can use some adjectives (describing words) and include your own nonsense words too if you like!

Remember to read back through your work to check for spelling and punctuation.
