We are going to work on size this week and explore some of the words that we use to describe size.
Cut up the words on the sheet and sort them into words which describe something that is small and words to describe something that is big. Can you think of any other words that you know?
Now draw one thing that you know is very big and one that is very small.
The Enormous turnip is a vegetable. It is a vegetable that grows under the ground. Work through the short powerpoint about where some different vegetables grow.
What vegetables do you have in your house? Where do you think they grew underground or above ground?
Complete the worksheet by cutting out the vegetables and placing them where you think they grow – above or below ground?
