Guided Reading


Continuing from yesterday's guided reading, today you are going to do the same activities but with a different book. 

I would like you to pick a new book, story or text that you are interested in reading. 

This can be a book, a magazine, online, anything. (just make sure it has enough text in it)


Read one page of your text and then try to do the following activities:


  • Answer these questions: 
    • Who are characters?
    • Where is it set?
    • What are the 3 key events?


  • Now have a go at summarising the text. Tell me what the whole page is about in 2 sentences or less. (Use the 3 key events to help you)


  • Pick 3 words you find hard and look up the definitions


  • Predict what happens on the next page (if you know what happens because you have already read this book before, make up your own ending). 


I would love to see a picture of the book you are reading and your answers above.  Put these on the blog so we can see what interesting books and texts you love to read and are reading at home. 



In this lesson, we will be identifying the key features of an action scene.

You will need these skills for when you have a go at writing your own tomorrow.

Today we are going to look a little bit closer to half and quarter.  We are going to look at how they are different and how they are similar. 





You should be able to see what when you use the numerator and you split your shape into 4 and then colour 2 parts (2 quarters)    this is the same amount of the bar as colouring 1 half  (1 of the 2 parts)


This means that 1 half and 2 quarters are the same.  They are equal.  We call these equivalents. 




When we only take 1 half        and       1 quarter       they are different answers. 

However, when we take    2 quarters      it is the same as       1 half
