The International Writing Cup 2019 – Top 10 Winners!

Throughout the month of November our children were challenged to participate in The International Writing Cup Competition! Children were challenged to invent a new character for the Night Zoo and draw it in a scene. Next, they were asked to write a report about that character. After writing the report, they were asked to write a story. Finally, they were asked to write a poem including the character in it. It was a very big challenge and our young writers rose to the occasion! We’ve had over 1,500 submissions and found it very hard to choose 10 winners, as the submissions were so very good!

Congratulations to wildparrot20, ovalkoala12, stickywhippet86, pinkhyena29, richotter06, kindtiger51, nicefrog37, kindliger16, redrabbit87, and dustytoucan83. They will all be sent Night Zookeeper T-Shirts. 🙂

Our New Look Animal Dens: All you need to know…

As you may have seen, we recently launched a new look for the Animal Dens (where each animal lives) in Night Zookeeper. This aims to make it simpler for your child to use and to give them more choice in the activities they do. However, we know that with any change, it can take a little getting used to so we’ve put this guide together to help anyone who is wondering how to use it. Don’t worry, all the same features are still there!

Earth Day Writing Prompts

Earth Day Writing Prompts

The Night Zoo is a very magical world indeed, but we want children to recognise the magic of the world they already live in. These Earth Day prompts were designed to try and do just that, by getting kids to engage with their imaginations and write creatively about nature, the Earth and the environment. Hopefully it will encourage them to think a little deeper about what the word “Earth” means to them, whilst developing the key skills they need to be a star writer.
