Carefully read the Food Chain text. After you have read the text, have a go at answering the questions. You will find all of the answers in the text! Just like we do in class, carefully read each question and underline the important words. After you have done this, look back through the text to find the key words. Once you have found the key words reread the paragraph to find the answer. Remember to answer your questions in full sentences! Food chain reading

Use the column method to solve the questions and then use the inverse (opposite) to check your answer is correct. Maths challenges – inverse addition and subtraction
