During our topic about Nocturnal Animals we arrived at school one morning to discover some strange footprints just outside our classroom door. 

We were unable to identify the animal that they belonged to and Mr Copley fuelled our interest even more by saying that he had spotted a strange animal on the CCTV the previous night.

Armed with magnifying glasses, we went outside and discovered a trail of footprints on the playground and field belonging to the unidentified animal and we had so many questions that needed answering!

Upon our return to the classroom we found a fantastical nocturnal animal which we named a ‘bigerox’ because it had the features of a bat, a tiger and a fox!

The story that we wrote during shared writing in the style of The Gruffalo tells you more about our nocturnal class pet!
