    • The animals were not polite or friendly
      its not polite to threaten anyone and all of these animals were wrong by telling him to hand over food from the shopping basket,they were demanding and that’s not polite and used bad language
      their behaviour was wrong because they were trying to bully him into handing over the food and threatening it is not good to take food for others by bullying them and the boy was late with the shopping basket to his mother because of them.

      • Well done Lekeysha completing your homework on the blog. The animals were being bullies which is very unkind. Perhaps they need to come to our school and learn to be good citizens. Super work using lots of adjectives to tell me about your favorite fruit.

  6. 2. Did Steven get all the items that his Mum asked him to buy? What was the reasons for this?
    Steven did not get all the items his mum because animals took some of his items:
    -Monkey took his bananas,
    -Kangaroo took his apples,
    -Goat took his oranges,
    -Pig took his doughnuts,
    Elephant took his Crips.
    3. What do you think Steven’s mum said to him when he got home?
    She said what he was there so long if he should to buy six eggs,
    five bananas, four apples, three oranges, two doughnuts and a packet of Crisp for tea.

    • Brilliant answer to the literacy questions Wiktoria and super work finding lots of items to measure with your ruler. Did you have help to cut them out?

  7. I will pick:
    six mangoes
    three chocolate
    2 packets of crisp

    Steven did not get all the items his mum has told him to buy because the animals wanted it on the way home and he gave it to them.

    She said what took you so long you only did to buy six eggs
    Five bananas four apples three oranges two doughnuts and a pack of Crisp for tea.

    I did the other one on paper Mr harwood

    • Great work doing your maths homework, super work measuring the 3 items. Can you tell me what you used to measure them with? Don’t forget to do the literacy homework as well.

    • Well done Jawariyah you have done all the homework. I go to Sainsbury’s sometimes with my shopping list too. Do you find the items for mummy and can you tell her how much they cost? I think Stevens mum will be sad aswell not getting all the items she wanted. Well done.
