1. Answer the discussion questions to help remind us of the story. To discuss something means to talk about it.

  1. Why did Mr and Mrs Grinling have a wire which went from the cottage to the lighthouse?
  2. What plans did they have to stop the seagulls getting the food? What other plans could they have had?
  3. Do you think the seagulls will come back another day?

2. This is a story about solving a problem.

Think, pair, share: What was the problem that Mr and Mrs Grinling had to solve?

This table shows how the problem changed over time. 
Can you fill in how Mr and Mrs Grinling tried to solve the problem on Wednesday?

Monday Seagulls ate the lunch.

You can play this game to sort some objects into their fractions.
