Reading Task

Can you sequence these images from the story?




Now use these talk cards to help you retell the story:


Writing Task

Tomorrow, you are going to have a go at writing instructions for making a fruit salad using these fruits and all the fantastic adjectives you thought of yesterday.

Your job today is to think about how you would make the fruit salad. Ask your parents/carers or siblings to help give you some ideas or even show you how to prepare the fruit! 

Questions to think about:

What fruits are you going to put in it?

How do you prepare these fruits (peel, cut, slice)?

Are you going to add anything else to your salad?


Here is a reminder of the fruits from the story:

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 make a page of the handprints of the people you are social distancing with (or more than one page if you are with a few people!) If you have paint, you can make a print but if not you can draw around the hands and then colour them in however you like! Make sure you label the handprint with a name so that when you look back in time you will know who's is who's!
