Fruit City

Question time!

Explain the difference between a fruit and a vegetable.

Which fruit do you think would be most suitable for building a house? Explain why.

If you ate a cherry from the shelf in the shop, would you be stealing? Explain your answer.

If you like kiwi fruit but another person doesn’t, is that because it tastes different to them?

Perfect picture!

Imagine that Fruit City is a theme park. Can you design one of the rides?

Story starter!

As they overtook a motorised banana and slid round the bend, the children pressed their excited faces against the cold glass of the car windows, each of them desperate to catch another glimpse of something weird and wonderful…

Can you continue the story of the Smith family’s trip to Fruit City? What will they discover inside?

Do you think Fruit City is a place where people live, a theme park or something else entirely?

You could draw or make your own Fruit City, and then create a persuasive poster or letter persuading people to visit, or to go and live there!

Sentence challenge!

Can you use a colon to add more detail to a clause?

Banana cars travel very slowly: their shape gets in the way of the wheels.

Giant pears make for a tasty lunch:

Pineapples are perfect for living in:

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

They drove past the big pear. In front of them a banana car went around the bend.
