Reading

Let's predict what our new story could be about. Predicting is when we use clues to guess what might happen next in the story.
Below is a picture from the story. We also don't know the title (the name of the story)!

I think the story is about...
I think this because I can see...

Writing

Can you write some descriptive sentences about this fruit? First think of some adjectives to describe the fruit. 

Here's some I thought of:

bright
juicy
smooth
sweet
firm

Then put them into sentences.

Here's some I wrote with my adjectives:

The bright, smooth fruit looked juicy. It's firm flesh smelled sweet.                                  Remember...


Grammar

Practice the suffix -less.

 

Write the words with the suffix -less. Can you put them in a sentence?

Maths

We are learning fractions! Fractions are parts of a whole.

unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator (top number) is 1 and the denominator (bottom number) is the whole number.
non-unit fraction has a numerator greater than one.
