To help make sure we know what all our spelling words are this week, look at the words and the pictures and match them up. 


Write a sentence about each picture. 

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 are going to be making inferences from Chapter Three of The Firework Maker’s Daughter. We will be reading pages 40-44.

Yesterday, we looked at finding half and quarter of a shape. Today, we are going to look at finding half of a number / quantity. 


Just like with the shapes, when we split an number into half, each part MUST be EQUAL.  They must be the same. So whenever you have finished, make sure you count each part to make sure they are the same. 


Also remember: 

  • half is 2 equal groups
  • quarter is 4 equal groups. 


Watch this video to help remind you how to split a quantity into half.

Now we know that we start with the number, 

We find the denominator to know how many groups we should have, 

We then share our items out equally into the groups. 





The counters are shared equally between 2 groups. There are 3 counters in each group. 

 os 6 is equal to 3. 




This time we need to split the counters into 4 groups.  This is into quarters. 




Now have a go at some of the questions below:
