Watch the video then read the text about jaguars. Ask someone to help if you are finding it tricky. https://www.nationalgeographic.com.au/videos/amazonia/a-hunting-jaguar-in-the-amazon-3804.aspx
The sleek, jaguar crept over the shadowy, damp, forest floor searching for its prey. It was night and the moon hung in the black sky like a sliver of silver. The predator was listening for the sound of screeching birds, chattering monkeys, rodents and capybara , anything it could chase, catch and kill.
Find as many adjectives as you can in the text and write them down. Write 5 new sentences using some of the adjectives you have found.
(Learning Support-Watch the BBC Bitesize clip ‘What are adjectives? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zy2r6yc)

Write what happens to the jaguar next as it travels through the night:
Where does it go next? Jaguars are good swimmers and climbers.
What other animals might it meet? Remember it is South America.
What do the other animals do when they see the jaguar?
What does the jaguar do when it spots the other animals?
Try to use adjectives to describe, add detail and make it exciting to read. Remember to use capital letters, full stops and check your work makes sense.
