Writing Ideas

  • You are an enterprising dipper. You have decided to bottle and sell your incredible natural waterproofing oil to other birds that live on your stretch of river. Write a persuasive advert for the oil. What are its benefits? Why shouldn’t other birds be without it?
  • You are a dipper with three young chicks. Feeding them ten times per hour is getting too much! Create a job advert asking for some help. Remember, you need to make it sound appealing rather than hard work. What will be the benefits for those who apply?
  • Imagine that you are Sir David Attenborough. Expand the information in the clip to create your own description of the dippers and their unique qualities. Can you record yourself and play it over the clip?
