In this activity, we're going to be using our retrieval skills.
Retrieving means getting or fetching.
That's why some breeds of dogs are called retrievers as they like to fetch and get things.
Here is an advert for Hazlemarsh Fair. Read it carefully.
Are you looking for an amazing activity to do with your children this brilliant bank holiday weekend? Do you want to make the most of the last weekend of summer? Look no further and come on down to Hazlemarsh Summer Fair this wonderful weekend.
Our village green is as spacious as a football pitch and will be busily bursting with events to suit all ages. It’s no wonder we’re listed as the best summer fair in the county each year. We will have eight terrific trampolines, a superstar stage with live music, a grassy dog zone and an archery arena. That’s just naming a few of our fantastic fun stations. You must come and see the rest for yourselves. Your children will enjoy this as much as their birthdays.
What time of year is the fair happening?
To answer retrieval questions, we just have to scan the text again for the answer.
In the second and third sentences, we're told that the fair is happening in summer.
How many trampolines will there be?
The second paragraph tells us that there will be eight terrific trampolines.
Now it's time for you to practise your retrieval skills. Good luck.
