I have added 2 extra tasks to Doodle as well so please have a go at these.
English – Alien Story
Your writing task today is to write an alien story. Try to picture an alien and describe it using a range of descriptive techniques. Then the alien needs to have some sort of adventure. Be creative and make it exciting. He could encounter a problem and then you need find a solution. You could build suspense and tension.
If you need inspiration have a look at this short film trailer on YouTube.
