Guided Reading. 


For Guided Reading this week I want us to think about the saying 'you should never judge a book by it's cover'. 


Look at the front cover of the book below. 

Think about the following: 

  • Is it fiction or non-fiction? 


  • If it is Fiction,
    • Who is it about? 
    • Who are the characters?
    • What will happen?
    • Where will they go? 
    • Do you think it is a book you would like to read?


  • If it is non-fiction, 
    • What is it about? 
    • What will it tell you?
    • Who might it be about? 
    • What would you learn from it? 
    • It is a book you would like to read? 



Then, see if you can write a paragraph that you think would be inside the book. 


  • if it is a story book, write part of the story
  • if it is an information (non-fiction) book, tell me some facts that you think will be in the book (you may have to do some research)



This week in English we are going to work on describing a character. 


We are going to do this through not just using adjectives and expanded noun phrases, but by writing about them in a paragraph. 


To being with, in this lesson, we are going to be making inferences from Chapter One of The Firework Maker’s Daughter.





We are going to go back and have another look at shapes and how we can use them this week. 


We are going to start with looking at rotation. 

We looked a couple of weeks ago at the language of rotation and what each of these words mean. 


Today, we are going to look attacking predictions about what will happen when we rotate a shape.
