There is no specific reading comprehension with questions this week. Instead, your task is to read and understand the information about Meerkats. There are some documents attached below.
Your task this week is to write a non-fiction report, titled 'All About Meerkats'. There is an example below for you to read before you write (but I wouldn't expect you to write your non-fiction report in as much detail!). Remember your main title, sub-headings and interesting sentence starters like 'Did you know..?'.
This week, we will continue to learn about using commas within a list. Please write out these sentences so that the punctuation is correct (don't forget that you need to use 'and' before the final item).
