LEARNING to make a difference

Week 6

Look at the picture below.



This is another picture from the Flotsam story.


This week we are going to be thinking about non-fiction writing.

I want you to imagine you are a scientist who studies underwater places and sea creatures.

Make a fact file of information about the picture above.

As this is a made up picture from our story, your facts can be made up or if you have access to the internet you could research some facts.




  • Can measure up to 3m long
  • Squids are various colours including red, green, purple and black.
  • They can be deadly to other creatures and humans.


  • They live in depths from 6m to 700m.
  • Most squid like to live deep in the ocean where there is little light.
  • Squid like to live near rocks, seaweed and sea anemones where they can hide from their prey.



You could include some of these sub headings:

  • Habitat
  • Enemies
  • Movement
  • Diet
  • Different types of squid
  • Size
  • Fun facts
