1. Talk to your family about healthy eating and create a healthy shopping list of your favourite foods.  Can you label where you would go to buy the items?

2. Did Steven get all the items that his Mum asked him to buy? What was the reasons for this?

3. What do you think Steven’s mum said to him when he got home? Why?


1.  What items can you you name in the shopping basket below. Create a shopping list and label each item using your phonics knowledge to help you.

Red:  Look at the items on the shopping list below. Draw the items and number how many of each item there is. How many items are there altogether? 


Do you think the animals were polite and friendly?  Why was their behaviour wrong?

    Steven did buy all the things from the supermarket. On the way home he met a bear who took 6 eggs of him and a nasty monkey took 5 bananas. The kangaroo took 4 apples and the horrible goat took 3 orenges that were for the baby. The greedy pig took 2 doughnuts and the elephant took the crisps that were for Stevens tea.

    I think Steven’s mum said “where have you been?”

    Pare which was 6cm

  4. 1. Healthy food:
    I buy these items from Tesco.

    Steven did buy all the items but when he got home, he had some items missing. The reason was that he met different kind of animals and they had asked for it.

    Steven’s mum might have asked, ” Why did you take a long time?” Because Steven met different animals on the way home.

    PSED i think the animals are not nice because they ate some of Stevens food. They are greedy.
    In the shopping basket, there are some bananas, oranges, apples and strawberries. My favourite is orange and strawberyy because they are yummy and they are juicy.

  8. My healthy shopping basket list is:
    Brown bread

    You can buy all these items from a supermarket.

    The shopping basket story:

    steven gave away an egg to the bear, a banana to the monkey, an apple to the kangaroo, a orange to a goat, a doughnut to a pig and a packet of crisps to an elephant on his way home from the supermarket.

    When steven got home his mum said what took you so long I only asked for:
    6 eggs
    5 bananas
    4 apples
    3 oranges for the baby
    2 Doughnuts
    1 packets of crisps for stevens tea

    So one of each item from the list was missing and no crisps.

    At home the three items I found are:

    The carrot is 14cm and is the longest item.
    The egg is 5cm.
    The tomatoe is 4cm which is the shortest.

    PSED ” The animals are bad. They don’t have kind hands, they hit. They don’t have a kind mouth”
