We focused on asking questions with ‘how much’, ‘how many’, ‘how long’ and ‘how far’.


Practice using the correct structure for sentences in English ( subj + verb + obj). Make 5 sentences using the words ‘thermos’, ‘thermal’ and ‘thermostat’. Practice asking question with ‘how much’ and ‘how many’. Ask 5 questions – remember to use ‘do’ or does’.
