L.I. – To create an information poster.

Read and enjoy Chapter 5 of the story, The Secret Methods.

Imagine you have been asked to design a poster to feature in a new hunting magazine. The poster is to advertise ways to poach pheasants.
Create a poster explaining the two methods Danny’s Dad describes for how to catch a pheasant, ‘The Horse-hair Stopper’ and ‘The Sticky Hat’.

Checklist:

• Make your poster attractive by including images, an exciting title and words and phrases from the text.
• If you are feeling really creative, you could also include an additional method to poaching pheasants which you have invented!
