third of the tyre. The rest can be done by hand.

Take the inner tube out. Look for the __________ .

If you cannot see one, put the tube in some _______. Bubbles will come

Push the tube into the tyre.

Pull the valve through the hole in the wheel rim .

Push the tyre _____ the wheel rim. Start at the valve. Do this on

both sides. The second side will be much more difficult. Try not to

use levers because they might ______ the inner tube.

LO 6
LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.
We know this when the learner:
6.4 develops own vocabulary.
6.4.2 recognises words which sound the same but are spelled differently;
6.4.3 recognises words which are often confused;
6.4.4 understands between 4 000 and 5 500 common spoken words in context by the end of grade 6.
