There are lots of adjectives used in the story to describe the different fruits. Can you spot them?

Can you think of any of your own adjectives to describe the fruits you have tried?

Challenge: extend your sentences using 'and'.

We have learned how to count in steps of 2. 

Practise counting in 2's at home with an adult or a sibling.

Special Task

Time Capsule Task

Over the week we will be posting activities to help you make a very special Time Capsule, so you can remember and look back at this time when you are older!

We will be posting a different activity each day. There is a print out option but if you cannot print, then use it as inspiration to draw and write your own version at home!

Today I would like you to interview a grown up in your home to find out how they are feeling at this time.
