Animal sentence game

Hi Yellow Class,

You know how much I love English so I wanted to challenge you to a sentence game.

Animal game

I am going to make a list of animals.

You have to pick an animal and write a sentence about it – they can be playful/funny if you want!


I will put in certain criteria, e.g. use a simile, use
two adjectives, use an adverb, use ‘after’,
use ‘when’, for example but you can include as much detail in your sentence as you like!



For example:

The scary snake tickled the terrifying tiger with his tremendous tongue!


In my example I used the word terrifying as I chose a tiger. I added alliteration ‘scary snake’ and also an exclamation mark !

You can also mention other animals in your sentence!


  • Alligator  – use two adjectives

  • Bear – use the word ‘Rapid’

  • Crocodile – use some alliteration e.g. words beginning with the same first letter as crocodile

  • Dolphin  – use an adverb (ly word)

  • Flamingo – use three adjectives

  • Giraffe – use an exclamation point !

  • Hippo  – use the word ‘hungry’

  • Kangaroo  – use the word ‘when’

  • Lion  – use four adjectives!

  • Penguin – use the word ‘after’

  • Rhino –  use the word ‘rapid’

  • Sheep – use two adverbs (ly words)

  • Tiger   – use the word ‘terrifying’

  • Wolf  – use a conjunction  (if, that because)

  • Zebra – use a conjunction (or, yet, so)


You should post at least 3 sentences! But you can do as many as you like.

    The terrifying tiger hid underneath the big log whilst the hungry, thirsty and friendly lion drank from the shallow and swampy lake.

    The wolf didn’t want no friends because he was angry and lonely.
